Conga cajons

Postby willfry » Sat Feb 15, 2014 11:00 am

I've been on tour for over a year and not being able to do any proper practice is driving me mad. I've been thinking that if I could find a set of conga cajons that stack inside each other like Russian Dolls then it would be possible to find space for them and tour with them. Also much easier to take them to a rehearsal room.

Does anyone know any conga cajons that stack inside each other?

Does anyone know a company that make fours sizes of drum. rq/q/c/t?

Thanks!

When I was researching the dimensions for my home made laptop conga cajon I found a guy in Argentina [Pepe Mensi] who made his own version without all the paint so I could get the measurements. He also makes a stacking set like you describe ... but smaller than you want I think and only 3. Maybe he'd do a custom job. He has a utube channel and blog [see below]

Hey Will,

Life on the road eh?
Pearl used to make Conga Tubes which maybe did what you are looking for, but check this out from Toca

As much as I love Cajones, I would rather use this for practicing abroad:

I have one quinto conga cajon that was made by Fat Congas. I play it all the time
with the conga drum from the same company.
