A Passion for Details

Conga Rims
The MEINL Traditional-Tuning-Rim (TTR) for congas represents the traditional "Cuban Style." It is narrowly placed around the shell and enhances the overall conga sound.

Conga Saver
The patented Conga Saver is truly a MEINL innovation. Available in 8 mm and 10 mm versions, they are placed over the conga lugs to prevent them from damaging and scratching the shell while the conga remains fully tunable.

Conga Heads
MEINL True Skin Buffalo Heads are without a doubt the perfect choice for both wood and fi berglass congas due to their structure, thickness, and sonic characteristics. True Skin hides are selected by specialists. After the selection process, each skin is gently tanned using a special MEINL procedure and then mounted by hand to become a first class True Skin Head.

MEINL Is a Member of the Germany Working Group of the Forest Stewards Council: FSC
The traditional plantation of rubber wood (Hevea brasiliensis Muell.-Arg.) in Thailand meets all ecological requirements. In a natural evolution, new trees are planted and the older ones, which have ceased to provide latex, are harvested. In this way, plenty of raw material is available and the valuable rain forest eco-system is preserved. In addition to rubber wood (Hevea brasiliensis Muell.-Arg.), we also utilize American White Ash (Fraxinus americana L.) which meets all the CITES-regulations set in the "Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora."
