Value for a used Toca Traditonal Conga?

Postby slinginit » Wed Nov 06, 2013 6:24 pm

I have a Toca Traditional Conga with a hide head, 11 3/4", with 5 lugs, all brushed steel hardware. The hardware alone is a cut above anything I've seen on many congas. It has a blonde oak finish as per all the congas in the Traditional series. It's a solid drum overall with just a few nicks and chips - nothing that is glaring or obvious to detract from the look. It's not "like new" but it's definitely better than "good" condition. Head is in excellent shape. Estimate 8.5-9 out of 10 (just b/c of the nicks). MSRP new from Toca is $492 just for this drum; I've seen new ones on ebay for $355.

Fact is I just don't play it like I thought I would and after coming off a house move, I need to take an honest look at all my stuff and purge. My question is what is a fair value/price for a used conga of this series in VG shape? It's also heavy so I don't know about shipping it.


Thanks!

X8 has them new starting at $259.

I like them and intend on getting a set... new.

5 lugs means your drum is actually an 11" quinto... as these run around $250:-)-300 new, I wouldn't askfor more than $175. Just my 2¢.. :-)

Ooops! Thanks, maelopr! I had to measure it again. That's what I was thinking w/regard to value. I would include a set of 4 rubber feet with the drum.
