Good congas, rightly

Nicolas P., 20.06.2011
-First impressions-
I confess to being very happy with these congas, for a first purchase concerning this instrument. I was looking for a compact set to integrate it with my drum-percussion, that's why I opted for these instruments in 10 and 11 inches instead of 11 and 12 inches. The degraded wine finish is very nice to look at. The inspired high-end circles from Meinl are inspired by their high-end and are very comfortable. I also want to reveal a trick that beginners do not necessarily know: if you play sitting, instead of playing without the supports and thus losing the bass, you can shorten the 3 feet and place the plastic end. It is still a little more stable and or keeps the low.

-The sound-
Concerning the sound, the typical sound of the Cuban congas is at the rendezvous. The bass, medium and slamming are nice. A flat, however, when one is in certain rooms or environments, the bass and the clacked can sound a little bad, producing a reason comparable to that of a can. But it must be remembered that this is a first prize from Meinl, so it should not be too demanding either.

A small thing to regret also, but that does not directly concern the instrument: there are no (or not yet, let's be positive) plastic skins compatible with this model, which is a shame, because many percussionists would suddenly Concerned. I hope to be read by the 2 or 3 manufacturers of globally recognized skins (let's be positive too ...)

Also I would like to point out to the purchasers concerned by the environment (of which I am a member), there is no certification that the timber comes from an eco-responsible exploitation.

-To summarize-
The most: good quality billing, good sound given the price range, ergonomic size, comfortable circles.
The less: a sound of bass and slamming disappointing in certain sound environments, not plastic skins compatible with this model, wood not eco-certified.
