OVERVIEW

Premium quality combined with contemporary looks and feel.

Extraordinary features conspire to make the Toca Eric Velez Congas truly great instruments in feel and sound. Their premium two-ply Asian oak shells are crafted into a contemporary broad-waist Afro-Cuban profile that provides warm and deep exclamations. The shells are then highlighted with a sunburst fade finish. Black mirror chrome hoops and lugs give them a sleek and modern look. They're fully evocative of their namesake, Eric Velez, the young New York veteran percussionist who has played with everybody from Mark Anthony to Eddie Palmieri.

Six tuners s opposed to the usual five promote symmetrical cross-lug tensioning and ensure pitch stability. A black mirror chrome Easy Play hoop provides secure seating of the specially matched top-grade natural bison head. The drums stand 28" tall, as opposed to 30", making long performances easier for traditional seated congueros. The Eric Velez Congas are premium instruments that will grace any stage.

Comments about Toca Eric Velez Signature Congas:

I am a part-time hand percussionist, but I get to sit in with some really great bands/performers. I have owned a variety of congas from various major manufacturers. Until recently I relied on a set of Pearl Primero Pro fiberglass congas (10?/11?, compact, light, weather-resistant) and a set of LP Junior wood congas (8?/9?, tiny, but have an authentic sound).However, I have been looking for a full-sized set of 28? wood ?sit-down? congas for a while, for use in those situations where I have lots of room and want to really contribute the best in terms of tonal quality. I had originally settled on the LP Salsa congas, but then I found the Eric Velez series drums. They looked fantastic, seemed to be well designed and built, and satisfied all of my wants and needs for substantially less money.So, I bought a set (conga & tumba) last week and received them yesterday. I?m really happy; the drums are beautiful, sound great, and are built like a tank. I think Toca has a real winner here.
