I know this belongs in the Other Instruments forum, but I don't see too many percussion threads here, and I was hoping to glean some wisdom from the TDPRI alumni... Hope this can live in Bad Dog until it gets a reply or two... Thanks in advance!
I have an opportunity to buy a set of Pearl Primero Congas (Primero is Pearl's student line, like Squier) for fairly cheap ($125).
I can get either Oak or Fiberglass.
Neither come with a stand, so that's an additional expense.
Which would you recommend?
These are going to live at my teaching studio and hopefully see some use on jam nights.
The oak ones have a higher MSRP, but that doesn't matter to me if the fiberglass ones are easier to play. I don't play congas, so easier to play is good.
I thought having these around might help inspire/encourage creativity, if not my own, maybe somebody else's.
Or should I just wait and spend a little more and get a better quality set?
Thanks in advance!
