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!
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.
