Winner of a 2003 MiPA award, it's a uniquely designed, shallow, portable conga now available in 2 sizes. Constructed with a special aluminum alloy frame, it features a synthetic head for tuning stability and may be played on stage, in the studio, or anywhere quiet practice is necessary or a full-sized conga is impractical. Mountable on any standard snare stand (we recommend the Gibraltar 6606 Snare Stand), it can be used separately or incorporated into a full percussion setup where space is at a premium.
