Thanks everyone.
These babies are awesome. The sound is the best I have come across in 20 years (and that is out of the box!)
With 9 tuning lugs per drum they keep their pitch perfectly.
Peace & drum

FWIW: I do not dare to think how well the sound will develop
over the next years once the skins are completely broken in!

They come already equipped with the best cow skins you can get in Germany, so there is no need for new skins.
Those rawhides Jost Reiche has picked match my idea of a perfectly sounding conga skin anyway.
