Coming from both African and Cuban influences, it's no wonder the Conga drum has played such a major role in modern music. The traditional Cuban Conga was made from olive barrels or steam-bent staves of wood glued together with a calf or buffalo head tacked to it.
Remo's technological advances, such as ACOUSTICONTM shells, NUSKYNTM Vintage Wrap or FIBERSKYN® 3 crimped heads, and Soft Touch rims offer the latest innovative manufacturing methods and materials for a great sound. The result has been a significant enhancement in the sound and performance capabilities of these exceptional instruments.
Remo congas are 30" tall and offered in the Poncho Sanchez Signature Series "wide body" design that allows a deeper, more resonant sound, with greater projection than conventional conga designs. They come in a choice of either a Type 4 FIBERSKYN® 3 or Type 7 NUSKYNTM head. The NUSKYNTM head comes with the TUFF-E-NUFF® finish while the FIBERSKYN® 3 head comes on any of the four sparkle-painted finishes or three Fabrifinish congas.
