Changing the Tone of your Congas

Here you can find a video about neutralizing overtones in your conga. Sometimes, drums are made in such a way that the body and/or the head provides overtones that make it a challenge to produce the sounds you are looking for. By tapping on the drum’s body, a drummer can hear overtones. In the video, you will learn that permanently suspending an object in the drum helps reduce that problem. Viewers will find that the Making an Instrument Tutorial blog is full of various ideas and videos, such as this one, that are interesting to think about and watch.
