These are REALLY well built and awesome sounding congas that are the size of your typical conga head. Together with the bigger size conga of the same series, they form a nice pair for home use and gigging. I have used these all the way from small churches and clubs to stadium size gigs, without any problem in sound, tunability or build quality. They are easy to carry in a small backpack or snare bag when making the heads face each other. My only CONCERN with these is the way these need to be mounted. I have not tested the original holder made for them, but i have used snare stands to accomodate them on gigs. The problem is the lack of mass, because the snare stand with the compact conga easily moves about a foot (30cm) during a high tempo energized song. I am a hard hitter, which also affects this though!
Unfortunately there was an error. Please try again later.
Overall disappointed with this product. I really had a hard time believing that a conga could be sounded without a drum and I still wanted to try it, I regret because for 40¤ more an entry Meinl or LP (conga with drum) is Much better. For the golpes: no bass, slammed (seco) not terrible, tonic (abierto) correct but a lot of harmonic. I use Hembra to hit only tonics, it suits in this role even if the touch is really not terrible. On stage or in the studio, with a microphone and a mixer, you have to be able to have a better result by cheating with the EQs. One of the clamping screws is blocked since purchase. There is enough to be able to do without it and grant it nevertheless but good ... More in 1 year the arch has opacified. It has lost its brilliance, I do not know if it is due to the humid climate. It's just easier to carry than a common conga although you still have to carry a snare drum with it.
