Volcano Percussion - Hawaiian Koa Wood Congas
This is the world famous elegant King of Woods. During the monarchy period in Hawaii, no one was allowed to be in possession of this wood except royalty. It was truly the Wood of Kings. Koa is highly prized for musical instruments as one of the rarest and most beautiful woods in the world. It's availability is limited and is cherished by anyone fortunate enough to own it. Like gold, it increases in value. The tonality of this magnificent wood is warm and brilliant.

Hawaiian Koa drums are fitted with our premier Custom Traditional model hardware. Made of 100% Stainless steel, this hardware or jewelry is hand buffed to a mirror finish. Volcano Percussion is the only company in the world that produces hardware of this quality and originality. We were awarded First Place in the Best Musical Instrument category at the 2004 Hawaii Forest Industry Association Woodworking Show juried competition in Honolulu Hawaii.

The tonality of these drums are fantastic. We strive to delight all percussionists with our unique sounds and beauty. Our quintos produce cracking brilliant highs. The congas emit rich, strong and warm clarity with resonance. As for our tumbas, they command bass with their extra large bellies in addition to having responsive sustain and projection.
