LP Compact Conga - Giovanni 11" (LP825) - Product Information

The LP Giovanni Compact Conga is a slim-line, frame like drum that produces an amazingly conga tone suitable for practice, live, or studio, produces most sounds of a full size conga. Now more than ever we mean it when we say that the LP Giovanni Compact Conga can be played anywhere a traditional conga is played!

The patented drum fits virtually on any basket snare stand and can be integrated into drumkits, percussion set ups, or used on its own-where it will surprise you with its wide frequency range and authentic conga feel and sound. The new 11 inch model may be muted for quiet practice.

Although the LP Giovanni Compact Conga comes with a specially designed "center treated" synthetic head. All traditional conga techniques may be applied and, to this end, the rim includes a comfortable curve to minimize hand trauma. Drum key adjustable tuning rods are located on the underside of the special aluminum alloy frame.

Excellent & versatile

Comments:

LP compact congas have a ringing, pitchy, frame drum like sound that is very similar to the conga tone sound, without the complex body or fullness of a traditional conga. Usable as a practice tool, but also in multi-percussion setups or in your drum set. Played with the felt end of swizzle sticks or similar mallet they have a clear pitch in a usable range from around F (for the larger drum) up to middle C or higher (for the smaller drum). I wish there were larger and smaller sizes available.

Meh...

Comments:

The problem with this drum is that it is basically like a roto tom in conga form, except you can't rotate it. It has no shell, so the sound has no depth. The Evans head it comes with is easily the most synthetic-sounding synthetic head out there. Stick with the Pearl Travel Congas.
