    Heads Up!

    By Bongo-YtkU2

    from annapolis, MD

    Comments about Remo Medium NuSkyn Conga Head:

    Remo Nu Skyn heads are the best heads on the market! period. I used to play real skin when I first started and thought nothing could beat it. I tried Evans synthetic heads out of curiosity a while back. got tired of real skin being so sensitive to weather/temperature. I thought the Evans synthetic heads were good but limited in tuning. It was time for new heads. I decided to try Remo Nu skyn about a month ago and man I'm telling you don't waste your time with other brands. Remo is hands down the king. These heads are so responsive!! Tuned high or low the sound is the real deal. I'm a Remo fan now. Nu Skyns are a little pricey but well worth the extra bucks. If you can't afford the nu skyn try the tucked fiberskyn 3. they are a little less expensive, but I bet they are the joint too! Will try them next. Maybe. cause the nu skyns are so incredible I might not try anything else!

    Comments about Remo Medium NuSkyn Conga Head:

    Man I put these skins on my LP Matador congas and man let me tell you they sound really good!!!I also like the fact that they are realy soft on my hands and I don't have tune them down after every gig. They cost a little more but it's well worth it.

    Awesome skins

    Comments about Remo Medium NuSkyn Conga Head:

    These are the best replacement heads I've ever had. They sound and quality is amazing. It gives the conga and more natural warm sound instead of the ringy off sound you get with just normal heads. It also feels great on your hands. Especially if you play salsa. They are a little expensive but its totally worth it! I have them on my performer series LP Congas; however, I had to adjust the ring on them..this was a huge problem, but its worth the trouble. It does fit your normal LP style congas though.

    Great for Traditional Latin Music

    By Ray

    from Miami, FL

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Remo Medium NuSkyn Conga Head:

    I truly enjoy much more playing my, Patato Congas. These heads sound great and are so much softer on my hands that I can play for longer periods without getting any hand fatigue.
    They're great for, Traditional Afro-Cuban and Latin Music in general.
    I love the, Evans Heads, on my, Matador Wood Congas and never thought I would like these, Remo Heads, so much, being, Remo, has a vast variety of, Conga Heads and have played some of them which I disliked for one reason or another. I hit the nail on the head with this purchase according to my style and taste of music playing.
    Like natural head look and fit with a bit higher volume and tone. Much easier on hands.
    Fit well on my, LP Patato Fiberglass Set.
    So far, so good. Great sound and volume.
    They seem to be of good quality. I'm sure that with proper care, when extreme temperature changes, they'll do well.
    Our winters here in, So.Florida, change drastically, nights can be in the 30 degrees and days close to 80's, so, due to my experience with my, Evans Heads, on my, LP Matador Wood Set, I'll make sure to de-tune them for the cold nights and for when in transit, they should do well.

    Remo Conga Head

    By Michael Musgrave

    from Martinez, CA

    Comments about Remo Medium NuSkyn Conga Head:

    Very nice sound. Complelely perked up my LP conga. My options were buying a new drum, or trying out a new head. Many pros switch to remo heads for sound quality, and ease of play.

    Great Conga head but beware fitting

    • Easy To Use

    • Doesnt Always Fit Cc2
    • Doesnt Fit The Cc2 Rim

    Best Uses

      Comments about Remo Medium NuSkyn Conga Head:

      OK so Ive purchased this conga head in the past for my LP Galaxy tumba and recently for my LP Accent "Armando Peraza series" conga; and on both occasions the skin did not fit the comfort curve rim 2. It seems to be off by just a little bit creating a large gap between the rim and the tucked skin. Now with this purchase its a hit or miss, because Ive purchased more then one Nuskyn Remo and some are more fit to the rim then others. Once you get the cong to fit the Nuskyn is great!

          Comments about Remo Medium NuSkyn Conga Head:

          I bought the 11" and the 12 1/2" for my old Lp Martin Cohen fiberglass congas. They fit perfect and the sound quality is superb. Also, they are soft in my hands. Tune them once and forget it. Nice ring on the 12 1/2". A little disclaimer here, if you have Lp performer congas they may not fit well. For whatever reason the performer congas are not built to the standard measurements, at least that's been my personal experience. You need a good flat skin and know how to do it yourself.

              Ordered all three sizes of these for my LP Performer series congas. Only the 11.75" fit on the drum. The 11" and 12.5" wouldn't even go between the lug tabs on the counter hoops.
