You also get a height-adjustable double conga stand that holds the 10″ and 11″ drums in place. These congas sound great and are made to last.
Why kiln-dried wood is importantThe wood used in LP brand congas is kiln (oven) dried. Why is that important? Using kiln dried wood allows LP 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 confidenceAll LP brand congas are fitted with tuning lugs manufactured from specially heat-treated, high-carbon steel that features precision cut threads for smooth tuning, strength and durability. Due to the enormous amount of the stress that is required to tune a conga head, the design of the side plate is crucial. During the tuning process, there is enormous tension pulling on the upper part of the side plate. Because of this, LP brand side plates are wider at the top to distribute the tension from the head and rim over a larger surface area. This provides for additional durability.
