The sound of Havana and Miami!
The quinto is 11" in diameter and 30" tall. Luis Conte is an acknowledged master of percussion, a grammy-winner whose touring and recording credits read like a who's who of contemporary music. He collaborated with Meinl to produce this splendid line of traditional-style congas.
The Meinl Artist Series Luis Conte Signature Congas combine the charm and sound of old Cuban traditional drums with the most modern of features and innovations. The congas are equipped with traditional rims and are mounted as close to the shell as possible. The True Skin buffalo heads enable a more controlled sound that's easier to tune.
