Great drums for the price

By Furutan

About Me Experienced

Comments about LP Aspire Conga Set with Free Bongos:

These are great drums for the price - at 28" tall, they are slightly smaller that most congas and they have non-standard head sizes of exactly 10" and 11" (plus a 12" is available). Replacement pre-mounted heads are available. As for the bongos, for my taste I would prefer a slightly deeper shell but they sound great. The stand is very solid and the slide-mount system is fantastic - no wing nuts, just lower them into place and they are rock solid. Unlike another review, the stands do not have plastic parts but black anodized metal.

    Comments about LP Aspire Conga Set with Free Bongos:

    This is a well made set, inside and out. Good drums and good hardware. The finish is like glass and the natural style is attractive, without any variation in color between staves.

    At 28" tall rather than 30", with heads a touch smaller than standard, they are slightly smaller than higher-priced drums, but this is not a huge difference. Note that while the listing mentions a 11" tumba, what you get are actually a quinto and a conga. The 12" Aspire tumba is available separately or as a three-drum set without stands.
    Note that you might want to condition the heads, as they are new. Info is available online.
    While I've been a musician for decades, most of my percussion has been in switching to congas for specialty numbers for live performance and I haven't had a set of bongos since my toddler had a bathroom emergency a few years back. Rather than switch over to a bandmate's drums during a gig (when he bothers to bring them), I decided to buy my own. The Aspire line is a great way to get into it seriously. I'll be adding the 12" and stand during the next round.
    As of this writing, of the various Aspire sets on the MF site, this (SKU J05386) is the best overall value (pay a pittance more than the standard set and you get a set of high-quality bongos worth nine times the difference). You can also order above-mentioned three-drum set for the same price (without stand). The triple stand would add around 50% to the cost.
    Another advantage to a two-and one setup is that you can attach a bongo mount to the double stand. I've got one and it's rock solid. If you are starting out or are not a full-time percussionist, the LP Aspire line is a definite winner.

    My only complaint is that the memory clamp uses a plastic wing nut. This is something that you set once and forget and, while it seems fairly sturdy, I've banged around enough stands in gear bags to know that things can break. I'll swap it when I get a chance.
