Luis Conte Congas


Senior Member
Hey everyone. Does anyone know what heads would fit on his signature congas? Remo and Meinl have given me different sizes (Crimplock Symmetry heads). The funny thing is that neither company has actually mentioned the only remo heads I've seen Luis play on his congas other than the stock Meinl heads (crimplock fiberskyn) Anyone have experience with conga heads and these congas in particular?

On one hand I have meinl and remo suggesting the same heads but different sizes and on the other hand, I see in videos that Luis is using a totally different Remo head...Frustrating stuff. It's very difficult to find conga heads. I have to order them and they will take 2 months to get here, and I have to deal with incompetant sales associates who I have to remind to do their jobs...
