Spalted Poplar Solid Shell Conga Set

Category:

Description

This set is made of locally and sustainably sourced spalted poplar wood from Athens, GA. Each drum begins as a solid log and is painstakingly hollowed and turned on our custom built conga lathe. Spalting is the process of naturally coloring the wood using certain fungi and is accomplished here in our shop. The inlays are made of natural turquoise, lapis lazuli and magnesite stone. The bottoms are protected by a clear polymer foot which will not mark or scratch floors.

This set is built to be tonally matched to sing together and the internal geometry of each drum is individually designed to bring out the best possible tones from the drums. The skins have been meticulously chosen to match the harmonics of the shells and to create a symbiosis of sound across the entire set.

All Manito Percussion hardware carries a limited lifetime guarantee.
