Latin Percussion City Series Conga Set with Stand (Natural Gloss)
The Latin Percussion City Series Conga Set makes a perfect instrument for everyone, from beginners to students to performing musicians. Constructed from environmentally friendly Siam oak, the two 28-inch-tall congas are equipped with reliable, rugged hardware, comfortable EZ Curve rims, robust tuning lugs, a tuning wrench, and natural rawhide heads. The set comes with a height-adjustable double stand that holds the 10 and 11-inch congas in place.
Made from Renewable Resources
These congas are made from plantation-grown wood. By using renewable resources, Latin Percussion protects the world's forests. This helps to ensure adequate wood supply to produce congas for generations to come. The wood is sorted and graded, and only top-quality wood is used. The Latin Percussion congas not only look good but also stand up to diverse climates and vigorous playing conditions.
Use of Kiln-Dried Wood
The wood used in the congas is kiln-dried. Using kiln-dried wood allows Latin Percussion to control the wood's moisture content level during the manufacturing process. Wood, even after it is harvested, expands and contracts. The wood used to manufacture all fine wood instruments, including congas, must have just the right moisture content level to help prevent the instrument from cracking and breaking. Latin Percussion congas are played by the world's most demanding players in all seasons and climates, in every region of the world. Using kiln-dried wood helps the conga stand up to many different environmental and playing conditions.
Play with Confidence
The congas are fitted with tuning lugs manufactured from specially heat-treated, high-carbon steel and feature precision-cut threads for smooth tuning, strength, and durability. Due to the enormous amount of stress that is required to tune a conga head, the design of the sideplate is crucial. During the tuning process, there is enormous tension pulling on the upper part of the sideplate. Because of this, Latin Percussion–brand sideplates are wider at the top to distribute the tension from the head and rim over a larger surface area, providing additional durability.
