Latin Percussion’s new City Series congas and bongos should be welcome news for any hand drummers who want pro instruments at an attractive price.
The new Eric Velez Congas and Bongos from Toca are a joy to lay your hands on — that is when you’re not ogling their two-ply Asian oak shells swathed in a handsome sunburst finish.
It’s never been easy to find a decent set of congas or bongos for young players who have smaller hands. At best they usually had to settle on a set of plastic cylinders with paper heads glued to them — until now, that is. In conjunction with Latin pop star Sheila E, Toca has introduced a new line of congas and bongos to their Player’s Series. Aside from being geared toward the beginning adult player, the drums are also practical for serious, young students.
