[NAMM] Pearl Goes Brazilian
Pearl has released a Caixa and some Surdos.
The “snare drum” played in Samba music is called the Caixa (Kai-sha). Pearl’s new Caixa features a 12”x4” wood shell, drum key tunable textured heads, and SR-018 style throw-off. It can be played traditionally around the shoulder with the provided strap, or attached to a stand as an auxiliary snare to your drum kit. Not only will it catch your eye with its yellow, green, and blue Brazilian colors but it’ll also cut through any style of music.
Model #: PBCX1204
List Price: $132.00
Pearl’s new Surdos are the bass-voice and foundation of our Brazilian Percussion Line. The lightweight wood shells allows for hours of comfortable play when worn over the shoulder with the provided strap. They are available in 18”x22” and 22”x22” sizes (diameter x depth) and include two-ply tunable heads with an outer ply of synthetic leather for accentuated low–end frequencies.
Our patent-pending Leg/Bass Drum Adaptor Kit (PBS30BD) allows your Surdo to be played vertically like a floor tom or horizontally with a pedal like a bass drum. Pearl’s patented Air-Suspension feet provide maximum resonance and solid grip to minimize sliding on any floor surface. The durable yellow plastic covering with green and blue accents highlight the colors of Brazil.
Model #: 18” X 22” Surdo $399.00, 22” x 22” Surdo $430.00, PBS30BD Leg/Bass Drum Adaptor Kit $99.00
