More About Monkeypods
The tonality of these drums are fantastic. We strive to delight all percussionists with our unique sounds and beauty. Our Quintos produces crackling brilliant highs. The Conga emits 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.
