Time to buy a conga set? One of the bigger choice to make is about the shell material… traditional wood or modern fiberglass congas?
Choosing a new conga set is exciting, but also overwhelming with all the options available.
For people new to congas, I recommend to check out two articles from our PercussionConga archive:
- The first one is introducing the Conga Anatomy, to be sure you have the right terminology and understanding of all the components of a conga drum
- The second one is about how to buy an used conga drum, that is always a good option to take into consideration
Whatever you’ll chose to go for a new or a used set, one of the big decisions to take is about the conga shell material: wood or fiberglass?
