I have used these with a full set of LP Matador congas for about 3 years. The advantages are they are inexpensive and allow you to play sitting. These are at just the right height for me (I have a 22" high custom super bajo cajon that I use as my "hand drum throne" as I alternate between it, the congas, a 12.5" djembe I pick up when needed, ad a stand-mounter 14" Remo contemporary djembe that I use as a "super tumba).

I agree that these take some time to set up, and agree, if someone comes by and picks them up out of ignormace, it messes the set-up up, and you have to make adjustments. I've gotten ticked several times at folks who move them without telling me, or re-aggainging my congas. I have a very non-standard set-up with the 4 drums in a arch, lowest on the left to highest on the right - oposite the way most conga players do, and I've had some inconsiderate folks re-arrainge them without checking with me. The negative reviewer has a legitimate point - part of the set-up required with these is to not only make sure that they are spaced evenly and angled correctly, you also have to make sure that each conga only has "conga side" facing the next conga, rather than a tuning lug or handle facing the conga next to it, or the cother conga will likely get scratched if you space them fairly closely together, as I do.

But I don't have any idea where the reviewer who say's you can't play even moderately agressively with these is coming from. If you get the set-up right (expect to spend 10 minutes, I'm serious), then they are stable. I play real agresively, to the point where I actually put two strips of duct tape on each finger to add a little padding, otherwise I get bone bruises. Multiple others have played on my set-up and nobody has ever mentioned a problem with stability.

And with my agressiveness, I've never had a stability issue. Just don't expect to set these up in a minute - if you're seriously impatient, don't buy these. If you can take a 5-15 minutes to set them up right, they work. I also don't get the "heavy conga" reference - does the negative reviewer have a physical challenge? I'm 55 and I would never think of a conga as heavy.

One final limitation to consider. Are all your congas the same height, or if one is shorter, do you have an adjustable height stand that you can use to bring the full set to the same level? If the answer is no, then you need to either look at another alternative stand or change out the odd-sized conga.

Hope this is resonably objective. I don't want to steer anyone, just want to comment on the isues as I see them.

Drum on!

I love these, they are durable, portable, easy to use indoors and outside.
They wont scratch floors or wimp out on sand or gravel, keeping your conga or djembe elevated for good sound and safe from the elements. Easy to use and sturdy, very stable. They fit any size drum, no metal nuts n bolts assembly.
This will be my second pair. Other drummers always ask where to get them. I looked and looked at musicians friend web store and couldnt find them until a web search brought me here.

The best drum support stand i have used. Great for drum circles. Added plus they are roped together. I am so happy to find these drum feet here!

a simple design for the seated player, allows your congas stability, so that you can beat your own drum without the worry of it slipping from between your legs, due to the super-smooth, glossy finishes on most modern conga drums...I have 3 congas and they ALL stand on their own FEET!!

So I was looking for a simple solution to get my Luis conte series congas off the ground without spending an arm and a leg on a metal stand. I also did not want to drill into my congas to mount them.

After reading some of the reviews on this product I was somewhat hesitant because people were having trouble setting them up. Anyway, $16.00 a set from a "semi-local" music store that I've been buying from since I was a kid...so I bought 2 sets.

Got them 3 days later unwrapped them went to my congas thought and stared for a second, LOOKED AT THE PICTURE ON THE PAPER THAT COMES WITH IT, flipped my congas onto the heads, placed the rubber feet accordingly, played for 30min no problems at all. They work great, the tones coming out of the congas are completly full and all accents can be heard.

Definitely buy them if you're a sitting down player better than playing on your basic conga stand, cascio interstate is also a great business with great prices.

I am really surprised because I thought they were less heavy, like normal rubber is or foamy, but I found that are so strong and heavy!! When you take them in your hand, then you realize the good quality and stiffness of the rubber!! Once you put them in place, you can play very comfortable and steady! Even if you hit the congas accidentally, they remain steady!

The material effectively absorbs the preassure (extremely low frequencies) and allows the drumhead to vibrate freely at the selected armonic!

Well, not forever!!
I play my congas with the quinto grabbed with my legs and slightly forward tilted, the conga at my left side and the tumba at my right! I play all sort of movements, muffles, slaps, basses, grabs, elbows etc, and depending on what I'm playing, I can hit with different pressures! Well, one foot of the quinto couldn't withstand the pressure while tilted and got broken. I put it some strong glue and then it came back to the party! It doesn't mean that now I feel regretted, this is just a tip for those that haven't experienced this yet! Still a very good product!

I bought a set to use with my Meinl djembe and they fit fine. I needed to get the djembe off the ground so as to be able to play it when also playing a frame drum, and I didn't want the cost or size of a djembe stand. The only thing is that I had to turn the feet around to make the djembe more steady and less inclined to rock. The instructions say to be sure the carry cord runs along the inside of the drum, which may be true for congas and other djembes. Which way they face seems a small matter, and I think it's an advantage to be able to use them either way - especially when used for something other than congas. I can recommend them.

I've played conga for years always standing and recently began playing more while sitting, the more traditional Cuban style by the way. This results in sound issues for the drum(s) you are not holding with a tilt. These risers works great! Easy to put on the drum, they provide a non slip stable footprint. They stay on while moving the drum a little but are easy to remove when bagging the drum for transport. The cord holding them together is a nice touch making them easy to handle.

I first saw these conga feet, when I played a gig with a new orchestra, the conga player had these on his congas, so I asked him where he got them from, he said go online to Amazon, I did I sent away for two pairs, they work great on my two LP Rumba Congas....and the price is not bad too.....

I have owned this product for over 15 yrs. Worked so well I bought a second set for my other conga. With the feet you don't have to hang on to your conga with your legs, some dress pants I wear to gigs don't "hold" as well as a pair of jeans do.

It serves the purpose. I have a set of congas on a regular stand and the other set on these which are perfect to use when going to a drum circle. Very easy to put on, just turn the conga upside down push them in, takes less than 5 minutes to put on.
