I already have the 11.75 version of the Pearl Travel Conga so I knew what to expect. A very high quality innovative instrument. These are well constructed quality products that play essentially like traditional congas. They have sufficient volume for my purposes as a pro kit drummer who occasionally needs percussion. I'm a Cuban music enthusiast so I'm familiar with the sounds expected of quintos, congas and tumbas. Obviously one can coax more volume from the traditional drum but if playing amplified the difference is marginal. The portability and convenience of a set of these compared to full sized congas is a big factor for me. Also I can practice at home without taking too much room. For acoustic sets, rehearsals and teachers who may need several sets in one space these are ideal. They are somewhat more substantial than the LP Giovanni signature models and provide a deeper more detailed and nuanced sound. The oak constructed enclosed shells produce a more convincing professional sound to my ears. Check out the Richie Morales demos online, they're impressive through headphones.
