Congas — Rumbero Series

Drums that elevate the party! As tribute to the revered Cuban congas of the 50’s, the Rumbero Series is MOPERC’s finest. The slender shape permits a wide range of tone from balanced basses, to sustained opens, to crisp and unmistakable slaps – and all with an abundance of volume. With 5 decorative bands, the Rumbero Series congas look as good as they sound. The perfect drum for every Rumbero!

If you’d neither seen nor heard a MOPERC Conga, you’d be forgiven for believing other conga manufacturers’ claim to be the best – if you’d neither seen nor heard a MOPERC, that is. But when you step up to experience the visual and sonic elegance of each handmade MOPERC drum you’ll realize the standard for “best” has been raised beyond the reach of most manufacturers, but not yours.

Since 1990, MOPERC conga drums have been 100% handmade in our shop. Kiln-dried wood is painstakingly selected for uniformity, then quarter sawn and cut into staves. NO STEAMING. NO BENDING. NO LAMINATING. The 3/8 stainless steel lugs and side plates, forged in our metal shop, are made to resist high pressure and corrosion for many years. And ultra-high-quality skins are hand-selected and tucked to provide the pure sound and feel serious congueros demand. Decorative bands are adjustable to compensate for slight weather-related changes, and a vinyl base is added to protect floors.

We like variety. In fact, we like it so much that the concept is a part of the MOPERC slogan. Fortunately, Mother Nature likes variety too and she provides us with an array of wood of varying colors and densities giving you the opportunity to truly customize your instrument’s resonance and appearance. Occasionally, some wood varieties are not always available on the market, so it’s a good idea to chat with us about comparable substitutes
