Premium PreMounted™ Conga Heads: LP

(2 customer reviews)


SKU: PMCHLP Category:


Premium PreMounted™ Conga Heads are natural skins mounted on stainless steel flesh hoops. They are designed to fit drums with specific shells sizes and crown types right out of the box.

A wide variety of skin types, thicknesses and three color options make your PreMounted™ heads fully customizable to suit any application.

PreMounted™ heads are hand crafted on 1/4″ round stainless steel flesh hoops. Production times vary based on thickness, color and order volume. The typical required drying time for a 2.2mm skin is one week.

Skin thickness is recommended relative to the shell size- the larger the shell, the thicker the skin. This produces a balanced sound across the entire set of drums.

    The heads are high quality, but you can work on the pricing, lower it down some.

    Thanks. Longstanding relationships with our suppliers around the world allow us to offer a variety of top quality skins that are consistent in thickness, free of blemishes and sound great. We aim to contribute to our drumming community in a positive, transparent and sustainable fashion. Unfortunately, top quality skins are expensive. Our customers expect the best, and we deliver!
