Quinto tumbadora - Buy conga drums with rope tuning
Congas with rope tuning
An instrument with mainly African roots (ashantis, bantoues, fons, yorubas), the conga is a drum which exists in several sizes: the quinto (or primero) is the conga with the highest pitch, playing solos, the conga (or segundo) is the medium-size conga, the tumba (or salidor) is the widest conga with the deepest sound, the tumbadora is a version of the tumba conga with a very deep sound, and the super tumba is a rare version of the tumba conga with an even deeper sound. We offer tumbadoras of very high quality: solid, cut from a single very dense piece of wood, offering exceptionally high quality sound. Their timbre is softer than that of a conga constructed from several pieces of wood or molded in synthetic fiber. These conga drums are built by Malian artisans using traditional materials and ancestral skills.
The quinto is the conga drum with the high sound. The strike diameter of our quintos is 24,5-28 cm. In some cases, the drumhead is mounted with wrought iron hoops and adjustable steel screws.
