Toca Synergy Conga Set
Decent skins, a beautiful lacquer finish, way under $300 for two -- Toca Synergy congas are the best of the worst, so to speak. If you're strictly a recreational player, these are a good deal and sound surprisingly good. Toca's low-grade lines are much better than LP's, take Synergy over Aspire any day. The Synergy hardware is sturdier, and the skins are smoother and more responsive which makes the slap tone noticeably sharper and crisper.
