Down the Docks

I try to avoid impulse buys, especially when I don't know exactly what I'm buying. I'd planned to get a conga drum (actually, a quinto) when I got to the end of my ten week CityLit course.

Conga and tumbaMy teacher at CityLit said he'd let me know what was a fair price for anything going on eBay. I got sick of practicing on a desk, though, and now I'm under contract to buy these little beauties. I hope my teacher agrees that £130 was a reasonable price. I've got to jump through some hoops with PayPal before I can transfer the money, so I think it will be about another week and a half before I get them. I can't wait!



  1. Rah!

    well worth it, I reckons. Basket stands are a PITA by all accounts, but since you will be playing Orfentical Latin Style you’ll not be using the stands, I expect.

    Only other problem is, how are you going to get them up to York for a jam?

  2. I haven’t even got them yet, and you’re the second person to ask about a jam. I think at least a few weeks’ practice is called for before I impose myself on anyone else’s playing.

    I reckon there’s a conga bag in my future though 🙂
