Toca Traditional Series Conga
The sound, simplicity and power these drums deliver is so impressive, they made the overall best list, though the low price could easily have topped the budget category. Toca Traditional congas also come with, appropriately enough, traditional rims. The hardware looks like old Gon Bops, and the sound is definitely that dry folkloric Afro-Cuban tone. These are some darn impressive drums at a shockingly low cost.
