Not a bad set, but the major problem I found is with the heads. They are inexpensive, and no matter how you tune them have a ringing tone. I have never been able to make them sound like "real" congas (i.e. - the recorded sound of a conga, played by a professional), but then again, maybe that's my fault. Normally you could just buy better quality (synthetic) heads, but most replacement heads won't fit the Aspire model congas. Also, unless you're actually going to be playing latin jazz, you probably don't need 2 drums, at least to start with. If I had it to do over I think I would spend the same amount of money on 1 conga drum, and start with a slightly better quality drum. If you do get 2, my recommendation would be to go with a conga and tumba, rather than the more traditional conga/quinto combo. If you look at drummer's websites you will see very few people using a quinto, and I've never found much use for it.

The Conga and Quinto in this set were good to begin with. AFter 1 hour of playing on these the stand got annoying. It creeked and the retaining clamps fell. It caused major damage to the quinto. If you are interested in playing the Conga's throw the stand in the dumpster as soon as you get home. I took them back the same day and bought the performer series. The stand is a mjor dissapointment.

    Comments about LPA646 Aspire Conga Set with Double Stand:

    I'm still trying to figure out what makes these a budget conga...besides the killer price? They're great! Well built, great looking, nice sounding drums. I have three (10,11 &12) and I love the sizes. Just a little smaller making them more portable and the 10" Quinto makes slaps and cracks effortless. Lots of fun and VERY hard to stop playing! :-)

    Great Product

    By Braulio Diaz

    from Puerto Rico

    Comments about LPA646 Aspire Conga Set with Double Stand:

    This conga set is great! It is a lightweight and small set of congas (not that small though). I bought the natural ones and they have a really good shiny look to them. I have nothing to argue about this set of conga except maybe someone could not like their size. But overall great sound, if you want to get the best sound out of this congas you should buy the Remo Fyberskyn heads for both the quinto and the conga, my quinto is tuned like a conga, and my conga is tuned like a tumbadora and sounds great with those heads, I recommend to anyone buying these that if you do, please buy them with that certain set of heads. Also, the stand is really good, really sturdy and can hold a lot of weight, great for playing while standing up. A lot of people are saying that they're for beginner drummers but I guarantee you that it tuned well, you can make this conga set sound like any professional set of congas :)

            Very solid high quality hardware and heads. I am very happy with the sound and appearance of these congas. I chose the natural wood exterior and they look great. Rawhide heads change pitch with temperature and humidity fluctuations but they are easy to tune. I use mallets as well as fingers. These should last a lifetime.

              What it was they were genetly used.. I keep them in my liveing room until I make room in my music room. They are well built and the sounds you can make from them are great. I've played a few sets of congas in my day ,and I think these are the best ones I've ever played. I have drummers gloves to take the sting and blood vessels comfortable.

              I got my Aspire Conga Set a couple months ago, and it sounds great. It has never fallen over or slide down the stand. This conga set is good for beginners and Advanced. It has great tone, and beautiful sunburst finish. I've play them at sevral conserts and get to togethers. Iam so happy that I spent my money on somthing good. I've never had a better one

              Great Quinto, Good Conga

              By LP player

              from Braselton, Ga

              Comments about LPA646 Aspire Conga Set with Double Stand:

              I wasn't going to buy this set; my eye was on another pair. Then I played them. For the price, I knew I couldn't do any better. The stand isn't the best, but I found it to be better than some of the other reviews stated. I played this set, then a set ranging at about $250 per drum, then the top of the line LP. There's clearly a difference, but the devil's in the details. The conga sounds a bit more muffled than the higher lines. The quinto, however, is amazing. I love the high end pop and the slaps on this thing come through crisp and clear. I picked up the tobacco fade option which matches my kit. They are gorgeous. I bought these in store at guitar center and got a great deal. Thanks to the Pleasant Hill Store in GA for such great service.
