Comments about Gon Bops Alex Acuna Series Super Quinto Drum:
This drum was purchased as "refurbished". The drum arrived quickly but not as described in the "specifications". The specs called for "fitted natural heads" and "the same contour crown hoops and hardware as the California Series". The drum arrived with a Remo plastic head and a confort-curve-type cast hoop that looks like it was made in the LP factory. I am familiar with the California hardware and this is not it. Regardless, the drum sounds and looks good and tunes very easily. I would buy a complete set of these at this price if they came as specified. I don't care for the sound of Remo conga heads so I've ordered a Gon Bops cow head, which isn't inexpensive.
