sitting conga stands

Postby eskrimaaddiction » Thu May 19, 2011 3:13 am

I incorporate an old pair of LP congas on the left side of my kit and at the moment their on the floor. Any recommendations on something that will get them off the floor a bit.

Thanks

Gibralter hardware makes some nice low-rise stands.

Depends on your budget, in my opinion, the best stand on the market is this one by LP:

Which is the same model which is normally used with the legs for playing while standing:

the Gibraltar seems like an option. Can you adjust the height on the conga to your liking? I've read else where that some thought that felt they were a little tall, but I doubt I'd have that issue

The lp stand is $120! Unless Marc C wants to give me a couple I'll have to pass.

what about these little lp things

These are the type of Gibralters I've had for since 1999.
and have held up to a lot of wear and tear.

Each tall stand came with an extra set of 10" or 11"
replacement retractable legs, to make for a short stand. They come in 2
widths to accomodate larger tumbas, or for conga/quinto sizes.

Poor man's version of the LP feet is rubber hockey stick ends [buck each]. I've tried it and they work, but never found a way to attach them so they don't fall off when you move yer drums - never really tried that hard either since I'm not frequently gigging drummer :)
