      IN STOCK AT LAST! Meinl Woodcraft Congas Traditional rim congas for
      players who want authentic Cuban tone. The shells are American Ash
      with a classy light walnut stain. There is no substitute for the old-
      school shell profile and traditional rim, if you want to explore the
      wide range of tonal colors available in a professional quality conga.
      You've got to play these, the Timbas and the used Gon Bops, all in
      the same room!
      Slap – really crispy, easy to get that bright "crack" that cuts
      through anything, and yet there is still a depth and warmth to the

      Open tone – brilliant, absolutely perfect, even when tuned lower than
      you'd ever want to play!

      Bass – speaks quickly, great response. Has a strong tonal impact, yet
      maintains a distinct richness of sound.

      Overall – You have an amazing variety of tonal qualities at your
      command, at a higher-than-average volume level, and without having to
      work hard.

      This will be our last facilitated community drum circle until Spring.
      We're kickin' back from doing drum circle facilitating for awhile,
      but not to cry 'cause - Hey! look what's coming . . . . .

      The ArtsCenter in Carrboro is hosting a WEEKLY Community Drum Circle
      starting Sunday, January 9th, 4-6 PM. Each week the ArtsCenter is
      inviting drummers of all ability levels to join in an unfacilitated
      drum circle. The group song will be created by all partipants, and
      community members are invited to assist in leading rhythms. Bringing
      your own drum is best, but a few drums will be available for loan.
      Music Explorium is the sponsor of this weekly event, and one of us
      will attend from time to time as well.

      "A deep silence revives the listening
      and the speaking of those two
      who meet on the riverbank.
      Like the ground turning green in a spring wind.
      Like birdsong beginning inside the egg."
