  1. This drum is something I have not seen before how is it played and what does it sound like? 🙂

    I presume this is special to you?

    Is that light from a window on the side?
    Please don’t let me be wrong again!!!! 😦

    • This is a conga, the middle drum. The high drum is a quinta, and the low drum is a tumba. They are played with the hands.

      I played this drum for eight years in a band I had called the Soul Twisters. We are very close.

      Do you really want to hear this?…It was a 27″ Elinchrom light box with an Elincrom EL-500 strobe inside. I wanted a long, narrow specular highlight there for an accent. I used to do that with wine bottles so why not a conga!

  2. One wall in my studio is floor to ceiling wood cabinets. If I wanted to bring out the chrome with no reflections I could have put up a white seamless background, but I thought this was far more interesting.

  3. I can accept that since it is something I would not know about,

    It is very interesting, I am enjoying learning about studio work.

    An aspect of photography that I do not think I will be getting into,

    So all of what you do there will be of interest to me.

    So there are 3 drums in this set, do you still play them?
    Are they difficult to learn to play?

    • Some players use a set of three, some use two, some use one. I used only one, but I would have loved to have a tumba as well. I don’t play it anymore.

      It is difficult to sound authentic…and of course 5-7 shows a night will kill your hands.
