Our Custom Congas, or Tumbadora, are built with an extremely unique stave design. This design enables us to have complete control over every aspect of the drum that will effect the overall tonal properties. From the wall thickness to the bearing edge, to the precise head – belly – foot ratios, our Congas are designed to have maximum warmth and sustain. Not only is our design uniquely modern, but it also gives way for much less wasted wood, less stress on each stave, and the opportunity to build with a variety of woods and options.
The implementation of this design is just as important as the design itself. The craftsmanship throughout these congas is superb. From our perfectly shaped and smoothed joints to the four part finishing process, these conga drums look as beautiful as they sound!
We have two basic models to choose from, our Full Size Conga Drums with stainless hardware, and our Mini Series Conga that is more compact, lightweight, rope tuned, and cost efficient while still providing a deep rich tone you’d expect from a full size set up.
