Remo is grateful that the great Poncho Sanchez, Grammy award winner and Remo
Signature Artist, originally brought Morales to our attention based on his

Jimmie Morales conga drums come in four sizes, 11", 11.75", 12.50", &
13.00" diameter, with a 28" height especially created for seated players. All
Remo congas are manufactured with our proprietary ACOUSTICON™ shell and are
reinforced for maximum durability. A high-density rubber mold on the bottom of
the drum protects the shell from impact in professional applications. Conga
Guards, assembled on all tuning lugs, protects the drum from unwanted scratches.
Chrome hardware, curved counterhoops and a comfortable carrying handle gives the
drum a classic salsa look. Available finish featured at the 2005 NAMM.
The Jimmie Morales Series Congas are available with both NUSKYN® and
FIBERSKYN®3 Tucked Type 7 drumheads. The Type 7 heads are made like the
traditional tucked animal heads, with the film wrapped around a steel flesh hoop
for extra durability and longevity. This advanced drum shell material has
excellent projection capabilities and enhanced low-pitched fundamentals. Added
benefits are strength, weather-resistance and reduced weight.
