The slender counterpart sits comfortably atop a standard snare drum stand, offering a new definition of conga portability. In addition, it will fit where others dare not go: small apartments, practice cubicles, or even the space between the hi-hat and the crash cymbal in a drumset. The sound is surprisingly full and delivers traditional slaps, muted sounds, and bass.
