Customer Reviews

Nice sounding percussion instrumentAfter playing the laptop conga for a couple of days I have come to these conclusions. The instrument sounds more like a cajon than a conga and is better for some rhythm patterns than others. For example I really liked playing Guaguanco and other folkloric rhythms such as Bembe on the laptop conga. So you would have to experiment and see which rhythm you like to play on it the most. One complaint I have is since you can't tune it, (well the one I received) the low drum is G# and the high drum is D#, for you congueros out there, I would have preferred the standard tuning of G for the low drum and C for the high drum. Of course the portability is very nice and a strap is included to put around your waist or leg so you don't have to worry about it sliding off your lap when you sit. To sum it up, for gigs, or practice where you don't need a true conga sound yet something close, and/or you don't feel like hauling your congas around, this is a good buy. And the price I feel is reasonable.4Love love love this Cool little cajon drum.Certainly it doesn't have the rich tones that a regular conga with a skin head would have,... or even a synth head, but it sounds really good. It has nice resonance and you can easily get several different sounds out of it - more so, I think, than with a regular conga. But then, I'm used to drumming on odd things more than real skin drums (If you can make a deck of cards sound musical....I'm probably better at making music with cards than congas or bongos, haha). Reviews state that it is more a cajon than a conga. Well, yeah, the head IS made of wood. If you've ever hand drummed on tables, furniture, the window ledge of your car door... or just about anything you can get your hands on, then you are going to love this. The tone/pitch difference in the two drum sides is perfect. It's just a bit larger than I thought it would be ( I didn't really look at the dimensions, not that it would matter anyway, but it is 19.5 x 11.5 x 3"), but this is totally portable and can satisfy that need to drum on everything and is a great little portable drum to practice on. It sounds enough like a conga that you can play it with a band - you'd need to mic it for sure. It is loud enough that it can be heard in different rooms in my house, but certainly not as loud as a regular conga would be. The issues I have with this (and I didn't downgrade because of it, because I've just solved them myself) are 1) Does not come with a bag. 2)There are two screws on the side edge for placement of the strap. But they are only on one "side", the front or the back, depending on how you play. I prefer playing with the low drum on the right, so the strap works well for me. Turn the drum around and the strap is attached to the bottom side of the drum - can't see that working out too well for those that prefer the low drum on the left, which I also do sometimes. 3) The strap itself is useless. It is advertised at being a lap strap or shoulder strap, but even with adjustments, it is too short and useless as a shoulder strap. As a lap strap it is useless for me as the drum isn't sliding off my lap without it. It isn't even useful for carrying the drum on your back. Toss. I bought myself a drum strap and I use that for playing while standing. I would often play bongos like that and used a guitar strap. This drum strap I got is actually very useful with the bongos as well.5which is great. I'm an amateur+ "tumbero" and it took a ...Got my LP Laptop Conga by the time the website estimated, which is great. I'm an amateur+ "tumbero" and it took a little practice to get the desired sounds from it, but once you the the touch it's a great product. Its not a replacement of real congas, as you don't get the lower/bass sounds, but for practice, say church choirs, vacation trips, etc its excellent. Its light and, of course, easy for transportation. Depending on the gig, I think you can take the risk and use it on a smaller show, or "garage" gig. The sound is not 100% real conga but pretty much there (kind of a quinto and conga). My biggest hassle is that my congas have real leather heads, which I have to tighten and lose every time. PROBLEM SOLVED!!4It fits in a large suitcase nice. My friends all play ukulelesTook my LP Laptop Conga to Kona Hawaii. It fits in a large suitcase nice. My friends all play ukuleles. They liked the sound of my LP Laptop Congas which provided a nice contrast and uptempo rhythms. Since I couldn't bring my congas, it was the next best thing. I really enjoyed the sound & portability. I highly recommend this product.5You have to adjust your technique to get the best sounds and I'm still practicing thatYou have to adjust your technique to get the best sounds and I'm still practicing that, but I love it. Nice tones, very lightweight and portable. If you don't have the money or space for real congas, look no further!5This is an awesome sounding Laptop CongaDelivery came less than a week. This is an awesome sounding Laptop Conga, clean and clear sounding. Play with hands or brushes it s awesome. You won t regret this purchase. For any acoustic gig or simply at home.....it s fun.5Great product - as describedJust what I was looking for. Its not conga, but it does a great job replicating the sounds. The cajon is plastic but the top (quinto and conga) is wood. Its very light; and the size is just great for travelers. I dont have much storage room for actual congas, so this fits perfectly with my needs. Great product.5My anniversary gift!My husband wanted to know what I really wanted for our anniversary. THIS was it for sure.I absolutely LOVE it.I'm taking lessons on line. So satisfied!!5Compromise at its finestThis is a fun little box. I'm no conguero, but I've always wanted a conga to mess around with the tumbao I learned a dozen years ago in college, and to play along with Eddie Palmieri records for fun. My 2 year old daughter also likes drums so I thought this would fit the bill for my small apartment and casual intent. It's pretty spot on, being small, easy to store and not very loud.The sound is pretty much what you hear in online review and demonstration videos. One thing to note is that it seems to replicate the open tones of a conga well, but other aspects like slaps and bass tones sound very flat and lifeless - like you're slapping a piece of wood instead of a drum head, which is exactly what is happening. The LP videos tend to focus on open tones, but there are some other videos on YouTube showing more varied strokes. Nevertheless, it sounds pretty much like a conga to me so I'm happy.The rectangular shape is weird, since an actual conga is round. If you place your arms in the same position as you would for an actual conga, you will strike this drum with a different portion of the hand/fingers. So far, I have "solved" this by turning the rectangle counter-clockwise by about 30 degrees so that the corner is facing me and each hand is striking on a different, adjacent side. This partially restricts my access to the "second conga," but I don't even know what to do with a second conga so that's fine with me. Again, I'm no conguero and know nearly nothing about technique, but it seems to sound much better when I turn it and it's easier to play - particularly the slaps.I considered other alternatives like the Compact Congas or a tiny requinto, but I figure if I'm going to compromise I might as well compromise all the way. This is pretty much perfect for my situation, it's fun to play, and I can play a conga tumbao on it, so I'm sold.5Good portable cajon. Sounds pretty good if mic'dI purchased this LP Laptop Conga for the casual band practice. Rather than loading and unloading my Matadors (conga and tumbao), this laptop conga provides flexibility to practice and play almost anywhere. When mic'd up with a condenser or an SM57, the sound is pretty good. The sound is a little hollow, so as another reviewer mentioned, you do need to adjust your hand stroke to get the right sound. I've taken it to the beach and camping and it provides a nice addition to an acoustic guitar and uke jam session.5
