AFRO PERCUSSION CONGAS

Postby DTMLGND » Mon Apr 30, 2018 6:46 pm

Hi all! Just sold off my old LP Aspires for some AFRO PERCUSSION this weekend. A definite upgrade :D !
Check them out! I believe one is Conga, the other Quinto. Question, the stands are not adjustable so they are not at the same height, so do I have the wrong stand or is this typical?
I'd love to get the Tumba to complete this set if anyone knows of one available.

I used to have stands that looked like those and I recall the metal was pretty bendy so you could spread the legs to lower ... but I have no idea if yours will bend like mine did. So if you decide to try and something breaks ... your call. Just sharing.

Thanks Burke! I thought about that and tried to bend briefly, but they are pretty solid and would probably need heat to bend. I was thinking also maybe try some foam padding on the inside of the legs next.

I recall mine were pretty cheap so no great effort to bend ... yours are better quality :)

Foam sounds like a good idea.
