Overall: I am new to playing the conga drum, although I am not new to playing percussion instruments. These drums sound great, are easy to tune and sound dynamic in the musical mix. Whether they're miked or not, the sound is distinctive and heard in the mix, even in loud bands. I love the sound and the response! I recommend these congas at any level.

Sound: For the prices, the sound is fantastic when properly tuned to pitch utilizing a tuner. The ports on each of the congas are tuned to "E". I tune the 11" head to "G" and the 10" head to "C" prior to play. The bongos are also tuned to a specific whole higher note before each play. The whole set becomes very musical and the fiberglass bodies produce a very loud efficient sound which allows the player to go easier on their hands to achieve equal volume when compared to a traditional wood set. Service and delivery from zzsounds was great! Feature: Kit included a quality tuning wrench and pouch. Quality: Product is well made. Only area for possible improvement might be a bit stronger stand to support the weight of the congas and bongos, but as delivered, should prove adequate for normal use. Value: Great buy for the price! The Wow Factor: Looks great in any surrounding!
