Do wooden congas tend to sound differently as they age and are played more? I know as the wood in regular drum sets dries and ages that they tend to sound different, but these shells are made of maple, birch, combinations of different woods. I was wondering if rubber wood does the same. I have a set of Meinl Pros, quinto, conga, tumba, and a couple of Cosmic Percussion, conga and I think it is a requinto. They all sound fine but hope they sound better as time goes on. Thanks
I am thinking as the wood ages, the sound would be a lot warmer and mellower. I guess it depends on the wood and climate. I have a Fat Conga conga remade of maple. I've had It for almost 20 years. The sound seems to project more.
