OVERVIEW

Studio-grade Latin percussion.

11-3/4" diameter, 30" tall. Luis Conte is an acknowledged master of percussion, a grammy-winner whose touring and recording credits read like a "who's who" of contemporary music. He collaborated with Meinl to produce this splendid line of traditional-style congas.

The congas are equipped with traditional rims and are mounted as close to the shell as possible. The True Skin buffalo heads enable a more controlled sound that's easier to tune.

Best Product in it's price range

By John Michail

from NJ

Comments about Meinl Luis Conte Artist Series Conga:

After buying the Conga, & playing along side with a different tumba, I am definitely going to purchase the whole set, even the bongos!
Traditional tuning rim; love it! Conga saver around the tuning lugs saves the drum from small dings & scratches....
Solid Build! Look inside the drum shell & you'll see beautiful craftsmanship...
Some companies jus have you pay for the name! This is ALL value!!!

    Comments about Meinl Luis Conte Artist Series Conga:

    I am not an expert on Conga drums, but was very please with the workmanship and hardware quality. Deep thick Bass and crisp open sound, with great feel, and nice tone. Has a rubber-like bottom which is ideal for floor placement (the way I like to play).

    I bought an 'open box' blemished item and it was in superb condition. Couldn't even spot the blemish so I'm very happy with their conservative definition of 'blemished'.
