Meinl Collection Conga series
Meinl Collection Conga series is the result of twenty years of Meinl Percussion
research and development. Meinl's finest craftsman working entirely by
hand, fabricate this series of instruments using a traditional tuning system
and True Skin buffalo heads. But the most unique feature of this series
is the choice of exotic wood for the shells. These select woods are not
normally used in the production of congas made in Thailand, since they
are not indigenous to that region of the world. The woods come from Germany
and are air-dryed and well cured before the manufacturing process begins.
The Bavarian Wild Cherry (Prunus avium L.) and Bavarian Mountain Elm (Ulmus
galbra Huds. and Moss) have been chosen based on their excellent sonic
characteristics as well as beautiful grain. Meinl Collection Congas are
available in three sizes 11'', 11 3/4'' and 12 1/2''.
