Good Starter Conga Set
alexpls, 04.02.2020
As it's my first conga set i can't really tell a lot about the sound quality of the instrument but i can tell about the overall built quality which is absolutely fine for such an inexpensive conga set.

The set arrived with the skins loose so i had to watch a few tutorials before i could really tune and use it properly. After the skins were tight, some beautiful sounds came out of the set.

I would highly recommend this set for a beginner/intermediate player.

Gute Einsteiger- und Fortgeschrittenencongas!
31.03.2016
Dies sind meine ersten Congas, die ich mir zugelegt habe; ich bin aber schon seit Jahren fortgeschrittener Percussionist in einer Big Band und beschäftige mich auch mit afrikanischen Trommeln (Djembe).

Verarbeitung/Features:
Die Congas sind gut vearbeitet und machen einen wertigen Eindruck. Besonders auffällig ist das Gewicht der Congas, welches durch das siamesische Walnussholz deutlich geringer ausfällt als sonst bei Congas üblich. Ich habe deutlich dunklere Congas erhalten, als es das Foto vermuten lässt. Das finde ich aber positiv, da der Eindruck durch das annähernde Mahagoni insgesamt edler ist.
Die Taschen für die mitgelieferten Maulschlüssel sind schlecht vearbeitet (Plastik mit Druckknöpfen); ich musste beide wegen Rissen und eines ausgerissenen Druckknopfs nach der Lieferung wegschmeißen (hier wäre ein Etui aus Stoff angebrachter). Die Einzelständer sind ebenfalls wertig, aus meiner Sicht benötigt man für den Transport aber zusammenklappbare Ständer oder man schraubt die Füße ab und wieder dran. Über das Design der Standard-LP-Congaeinzelständer lässt sich streiten, ich finde die sechseckige Form des Korbes nicht so schön (aber das ist Geschmackssache).

Sound:
Die Naturfelle ergeben einen weichen, aber schön angenehm knackigen Sound, der für diese Preisklasse sicher in Ordnung geht und wahrscheinlich in der Spitzengruppe des Preisniveaus liegt. Wie der Sound sich mit der Zeit verändert kann ich nicht sagen, da ich die Congas erst kürzlich erworben habe. Bei richtigem Umgang mit den Fellen sollte sich da aber nicht viel ändern.

Fazit:
Dieses Congaset ist sowohl für den ambitionierten Einsteiger, der qualitativ hochwertige Congas mit guten Sound haben möchte, als auch für fortgeschrittene Spieler, die ein gutes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis suchen, ideal geeignet. Die Profis müssen aber wohl tiefer in die Tasche greifen, wobei dieses Set mich die nächsten Jahre erstmal zufrieden stellen wird. Das Gewicht der Congas prädestiniert sie zum Einsatz auf der Bühne aber auch im Studio oder Proberaum. Die Ständer sind meiner Meinung nach für den Einsatz auf der Bühne eher weniger geeignet, da ich mir hier weniger sperrige und schnell einsetzbare (zusammenklappare) Ständer wünsche. Dass diese nicht mitgeliefert werden, ist bei dem Preis aber kein Problem, da solche Ständer deutlich teurer sind.

Nice Congas, Flawed Stands
Mikael Wilhelm, 27.10.2017
The congas look and sound great. The only minor complaint is that the conga has only five tuners, whereas the tumba has six. They probably chose to put only five tuners on the conga to make the more expensive models more of an upgrade, which is an annoying business practice I abhor. Five tuners is enough to do the job, but six is better and should have been fitted.

Anyway, the stands are flawed! To explain what's wrong with them, and how you can fix it yourself, I'll have to go into some detail on how they are constructed.

There are three legs screwed together from two parts, with a variety of holes to allow for height adjustment. The legs are then screwed into three bent steel bars that make up a hexagon shape together, and the conga rests on thick rubber chunks on each leg. So far, so good.

The bent steel bars have three alternative holes at each end, and you're supposed to use the inner holes for a quinto (10"), the middle for a conga ("11"), and the outer holes for a tumba (12"). This changes the radius of the resulting hexagonal shape to fit the different drum sizes.

Problem is, if you mount the stand as instructed, the conga ends up slightly on the high side even when the legs are in the shortest position, and the tumba ends up 2 cm higher still. The height is sort-of-workable but not ideal for a male of average height, and unacceptable for a female.

You can fix the conga height by using the holes for tumba instead. This makes it fit deeper into the stand, so it ends up lower, allowing you to raise the legs to get the correct height.

Or you can do what I did, keep the legs in the shortest position, and put together the hexagon shape asymmetrically, by using the middle hole on one end and the outer hole on the other, for all three bent steel bars. This gives the conga a height that works well for both male and female players, and I think the stand looks best visually this way.

But the poor tumba is already using the outermost holes, and it is much too high with nowhere to go! You can choose to accept it as is, since you're really playing the conga 90 % of the time and mostly use the tumba for effect hits. Or, you can drill six new holes outside the outer holes, as far out as you can make them. This fixes the problem.

If this sounds like too much of a hassle to you, there is another option - buy the same set of congas, but with the single stand option instead:

LP LPA647-SW 11"+12" Conga Set I

Don't get me wrong, the congas are great and well worth the price. I do recommend them, and the stands aren't bad either, as long as you fix them. But I'm reducing stars because you have to bother with it!
