Custom Congas are made for serious players, who want authentic sound.
The nature of these drums is such that they prove difficult for a beginner to play, since it is more difficult to extract the correct sounds.

However in the hands of an experienced player the drum is extremely responsive, offering as much range and depth as one could wish for. A drum that rewards good technique with great sound.

Another feature of these Congas is that they have excellent bass tones. this is the result of the 1-piece shell.

The tones are rich and melodic, while the slaps have as much range as one's technique allows for, from subtle pops to piercing slaps.
