LP Palladium drums. How to measure drum size

Postby biketony » Wed Feb 11, 2015 9:17 pm

Hi all,
I have recently purchased a LP Palladium Quinto drum (ebay ad below)
http://www.ebay.com/itm/131407772938?_t ... EBIDX%3AIT
quinto conga.jpg


Then I purchased What I thought was the other two drums Conga and Tumbra. Turns out the Quinto and the conga seem to be the same size. My question is which size are these drums Quinto's or conga's. I would like to purchase what I do not have.
In the next post I will add pictures of the other two drums

first picture is the drum the seller called a Quinto

second picture is what another seller called a conga

They seem to be the same size 10 7/8"

Are these two drums quinto's or conga's ?

Also same belly size

Thank you in advance for any help.

10 7/8" is definitely quinto size.
Well, actually 11" should be the correct measurement,
but like many other congas, LP drums are a tad undersized.

A proper conga has got a standard 11.75" skin diameter.

Nice score on the Palladium quinto at ebay by the way.
Hopefully you did not pay a fortune for the additional set of two...

If possible I would try to get a "real" conga instead of the double quinto,
if I were you.


Hope that helps.
Peace & drum
