Requinto conga - Buy conga drum
Congas with tuning lugs
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 requinto is a rare conga with a very high sound. The strike diameter of our requintos is at more 24 cm. The drumhead is mounted with wrought iron hoops and adjustable steel screws.
