De bonnes congas, à juste titre

Nicolas P., 20.06.2011
-Premières impressions-
J´avoue être très content de ces congas, pour un premier achat concernant cet instrument. Je recherchais un ensemble compact pour l´intégrer à ma batterie-percussion, c´est pour cela que j´ai opté pour ces instruments en 10 et 11 pouces au lieu de 11 et 12 pouces. La finition vin dégradée est très agréable à regarder. Les cercles inspirés du haut de gamme de chez Meinl est inspirée de leur haut de gamme et sont très confortables. Je tiens également à dévoiler un truc que les débutants ne savent pas forcément: si vous jouez assis, au lieu de jouer sans les supports et ainsi perdre les graves, vous pouvez raccourcir les 3 pieds et y placer l´embout en plastique. C´est tout de même un peu plus stable et ou garde les graves.

-Le son-
Concernant le son, la sonorité typique des congas cubaines est au rendez-vous. Les graves, medium et claqués sont agréables. Un bémol toutefois, quand on se trouve dans certaines pièces ou certains environnements, les graves et les claqués peuvent sonner un peu mal, produisant une raisonnance comparable à celle d´un bidon. Mais il faut rappeler qu´il s´agit là d´un premier prix de chez Meinl, donc il ne faut pas être trop exigeant non plus.

Une petite chose à regretter également, mais qui ne concerne pas directement l´instrument: il n´existe pas (ou pas encore, soyons positifs) de peaux plastiques compatible avec ce modèle, ce qui est dommage, car beaucoup de percussionnistes seraient à coup sûr intéressés. J´espère être lu par les 2 ou 3 fabricants de peaux mondialement reconnus (soyons positifs aussi...)

Egalement je tiens à signaler aux acheteurs concernés par l´environnement (dont je fais partie), il n´y a aucune certification que le bois vient d´une exploitation eco-responsable.

-Pour résumer-
Les plus: bonne qualité de facturation, bon son vu la gamme de prix, taille ergonomique, cercles confortables.
Les moins: un son de grave et de claqué décevant dans certains environnements sonores, pas de peaux plastiques compatibles avec ce modèle, bois non eco-certifié.
