Cuban-style drums customized for studio ace Conte.
All of Luis' specifications have been achieved with the MEINL Artist Series Luis Conte Signature Congas. They combine the charm and sound of the old traditional Cuban drums with modern features and innovations. The congas are equipped with traditional rims and are mounted as close to the shell as possible, and when combined with Meinl's True Skin buffalo heads, enable an even more controlled sound and easier tuning. This set includes an 11" quinto, an 11-3/4" conga, and a 12-1/2" tumba, which all come with free basket stands.
These Meinl Luis Conte Artists Series Congas won the MIPA award in the "Best Percussion Product" category. The "Musikmesse International Press Award" is annually presented by 55 music magazines from all over the world who get together and vote the best products in certain categories
