I have owned a set of these congas for a few years and am still very impressed with the projection, tone, and feel of them. I searched for a very long time to find the right congas to purchase and looked at several different brands. The LP Matador congas were REALLY nice, but very expensive. I had the opportunity to play an LP Matador conga set next to a cheaper set of congas (don't remember brand name) in a music store. Side by side, I could not tell the difference in sound. Looks were another thing...but the sound was identical. So I decided to take a chance on a set of Schalloch congas. I got the tobacco fade finish and they look like a million bucks!!! They sound just as good as the LP Matador congas to my ears. If you are a pro, you may be able to tell the difference. If you are a weekend drummer, you probably will not be able to tell the difference. In either case, your audience will never know the difference! These have a very loud projection that will cut through the mix very well without mics in a smaller venue (think church that will seat around 220 people). In fact, I find that I have to play a little softer in this setting to keep from being too loud. They record very well using an SM57 mic set up between the two congas. I do not think you can go wrong with a set of these. I have had these for over 3 years and the original heads are still on them. I would like to change them out now, but the money always seems to go to something else. They are not as sharp now as they were with the new heads on them, but they still sound really good. I know that they will get that nice mellow tone and snap back with a new set of heads.
