      Real Congas

      By Snuffy-.S7rk

      from Austin, TX

      Comments about LP Matador Conga:

      I have a set of four of these, and I've played in salsa bands, latin jazz, hip hop and other styles. These sound great on recordings and live. If you want LP drums but can't afford them, this is a perfect choice. I actually prefer these drums to LP's top lines, the shape is better for overtones and the wider base is more stable. Plus, LP's are much heavier, which matters a lot when you must carry them up stairs and in and out of cars, etc.For traditional Rumba I like the really old Gon Bops the best, the metal-banded mahogany ones that always come unglued. They used really thick mule skins or something, and had that sweet dry sound like Poncho Sanchez's drums. He plays gon bops on his albums. But Matadors are louder and tougher and available. Gon Bops are now more expensive and don't sound quite the same.

      Best value for the money

      By Congateacher1

      from Orange County California

      Comments about LP Matador Conga:

      As a conga teacher, I often suggest the Matador model to my students. They are light years beyond the terrible "Aspire" and similar entry level drums, which have really poor tone. Many top players actually use these drums in the recording studio.

      I have a Matador Conga and I love it. I think it is a great quality instrument for the price that you pay. I am very happy with my investment.

      Matador Conga

      By Papychulo989

      from Anahiem, CA

      Comments about LP Matador Conga:

      I have the Matador set, quinto, conga, and tumba. I love their sound when played in all types of music such as rock, salsa, and almost any kind of rhythm. They have great quality, look, and a fair price. For what it's worth, i'm glad i got them.
