Evans unveils conga heads
drumheads, the company that first originated the all-weather drumhead in
1957, has now produced a remarkable synthetic conga head that combines
the unmistakable sound and feel of animal skin with the benefits of all-weather
Years of research and development, along with testing and feedback
from some of the world's greatest congeros, has resulted in the new Evans
Tri-Center conga head. The Tri-Center conga head's special triple-slit
'Overtone control center' is responsible for the head's animal-skin sound;
it's acoustically designed to eliminate unwanted overtones and add low
end. A new textured finish and protective coating improves the response,
sensitivity and longevity of the conga heads. The heads will remain unaffected
by weather or temperature changes and will sound as good in concert as
they did at the sound check. There's no need for the percussionist to show
up early to tune and retune Evans conga heads.
Additionlly, a revolutionary hoop design conforms to the taper of the
conga shell for a perfect fit with the bearing edge and conga rims. The
hoop also locks the film in place, preventing the head from pulling out
under high tension tuning. Evans Tri-Center conga heads are available for
quinto (11''), conga (11 3/4''), and tumba (12 1/2'').
