Bobby Allende Signature

Bobby Allende

Bobby Allende is a mainstay in the New York Latin Music Scene. He demands the best from his drums, so his congas and bongos certainly exceed all previously acceptable standards. To start, you will notice that the seam is invisible, which gives the Fiberglass congas a Wood look about them. Their height is 28 inches, fitting the traditional seated player perfectly while adding extra width to the base for added projection and stability. A new rim design compliments both the congas and bongos adding extra comfort while complimenting the fitted Remo Fiberskyn 3 heads. If you demand excellence like Bobby, check out his Signature Fiberglass Congas and Bongos, available in three gorgeous finishes: Cafe con Leche, Solar Sparkle and Brisa Tropical.

Fiberglass Congas

Elite Fiberglass Congas

Pearl has congas for every application. Our Elite Series offers the highest quality heads with polished Contour Crowns and a choice of shell materials. Compared to the Elite Wood Series conga's, the fiberglass congas offer you more projection and therefore fiberglass congas are in general louder than the wood congas.
Our Elite Fiber Congas in the finish #634 Burgundy Marble are equipped with the traditional rims.

Havana Congas

The Havana Series Conga Set is available in a Quinto, Conga, Tumba, and matching Bongo pair. Most modern conga belly circumferences measure 42” at their widest, while these fiberglass shell congas feature a Cuban-style width, with the Quinto, Conga, and Tumba waist lines measuring 48”, 50”, and 52” respectively, to give these drums a very deep and impactful punch.

The drums come standard with Pearl’s Contour Crown Rims, chrome plated hardware, rubber shell guards, and Pearl’s exclusive Self-Aligning Washer System for effortless tuning.Finished in #644 Liquid Gold and #651 Red Tiger Stripe lacquer to complete the exotic look, the Havana Series Congas and Bongo are a great addition to your percussion set-up!

Folkloric Congas

Folkloric Congas

This line of congas feature a traditional look with modern innovation that only Pearl can deliver. Each 28” tall Oak conga is designed for the “seated” player, but is predrilled for stand mounts if necessary. Thicker South American-style natural skins make the drums warm-sounding, but a fiberglass gel coat on the interior seals the shell and add the projection and volume desired by today’s players. Four Polished Steel Reinforcing Bands are inset on the shell for a smooth touch, and the traditional hoops complete these stunning instruments in a Matte Crimson Sunrise finish. Fiberglass Resin Inside Coating for Projection, Traditional Crowns, 28" Tall, Thicker South American-Style Heads, Recessed Steel Bands.
