OVERVIEW

Elite congas designed with ace studio percussionist Conte'!

These Meinl Luis Conte' Artists Series Congas won the MIPA award in the "Best Percussion Product" category. The "Musikmesse International Press Award" is presented annually by 55 music magazines from all over the world, whose reps get together and vote for the best products in certain categories.

All of Luis' specifications have been achieved with the MEINL Artist Series Luis Conte' Signature Congas.

The congas are equipped with traditional rims, mounted as close to the shell as possible, and combined with Meinl's True Skin buffalo heads for more controlled sound and easier tuning. Set includes an 11" quinto and an 11-3/4" conga and comes with free basket stands.

    DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY! BUY AN LP SET!

    By Small Town Percussion

    This set does not at all give you a good conga sound. The resonance isn't good, the tone is rather flat and its just not worth the price. Stick with an LP conga set.
