Average good conga

By 

from Boston area

Comments about LP Galaxy Giovanni Series Conga:

What makes this set OK is that it is Ash, still made in Thailand. It is stave and is "seamless' because the inner staves are puttied. So much for "solid wood" and continuous resonance. This is the counterpart of the Giovanni bongos which are solid and not the usual rubberwood. Typical mediocre and not uniform LP skins which needs replacing if you are at all discrimating. OK bongs and congos but nothing special for "top of the line". Also overpriced.

Fabulous drums!

By 

from Boston, MA

Comments about LP Galaxy Giovanni Series Conga:

Although I have had the LP 40th Anniversary series conga drums for 9 years, the LP Galaxy Giovanni series are a major step up in sound. I wasn't sure if it was worth the investment but there is no question. Less ringing and a more full sound with greater projection. I was skeptical as to whether the Requinto would make a difference but it is truly magical and is a must for the set. I wish I bought these a long time ago!

Great drums

By 

from Kalamazoo, Michigan

Comments about LP Galaxy Giovanni Series Conga:

LP's intermediate to professional-grade drums and hardware are second to none. They perform well and are built to last. I had been playing LP Classic series congas for about six years and recently upgraded to the Giovanni 11-inch Quinto and 11.75-inch Conga. I was amazed to find out how much more sound these drums project in a live setting. The tone is very warm and rich. Also impressive is the beefed up hardware -- the rims and 3/8-inch lugs. The extended collar Comfort Curve rims are solid and they allow for (as their name suggests) comfortable playing. If you are considering the purchase of a top-of-the-line wood conga drum, look no farther.
