Meinl Conga Models using SSR rims: Drumhead Selection

Remo Symmetry Conga drumheads are designed specifically for non-Remo model Congas equipped with the latest version 'contoured/radial' hoops, i.e rims, as a standard among conga manufacturers-beginning since the late 90's. (If you have traditional hoops or would prefer tucked conga drumheads, please see other knowledge base post to confirm if drumheads are available for your model or contact our support center).

Symmetry drumheads are specifically engineered to conform to the shells bearing edge with tension for optimum tone, pitch stability, and projection.

Denotation: 'D' in the model number, denotes the inner diameter (ID) of the Aluminum Ring. D1 being the smallest, D4 being the largest-all specific to the type/model of the drum. Note the Crown size, i.e.playing surface remains the same: 9.75", 10.75" 11.06", 11.25”, 11.75", 12.25” 12.50", 13”.

Due to non-standardized conga drum manufacturing, drumhead fit may vary...make sure to center and level as you tension for optimum performance. All listed models have been fit tested by Remo staff.

    I have a three conga set of Meinl Marathon Classic Series which came with buffalo skin heads which sounded rather dull and weren't very responsive. I emailed Remo customer support who suggested Remo Symmetry Fiberskyn heads and took a lot of trouble to make sure I had the right size heads (see above). Well, they're now fitted to my congas and are a REVELATION! The heads are a perfect fit and the drums sound bright and responsive and the slaps are awesome. So, thank you Remo, you have one very satisfied customer in England!
