Item specifics

Condition:

Used

Brand:

Valje

Country of Manufacture:

United States

Drum Type:

Conga

A Beautiful set of Valje Conga drums (Conga and Tumba) made in California from Red Oak in the early 1970s by the master conga maker, Tom Flores and his Valje Drums company. These Congas are legendary for their unique beauty, fine craftsmanship, and superb sound. They are gorgeous and are in good shape for drums of this era. These unique drums are highly desirable to expert percussionists and to collectors alike. They have some stickers on them, some scratches and could use new skins, but they sound superb and are a great pleasure to play. Vintage Valje Congas rarely come on the market, and these won't sit long before being shipped to their new home. (And we're only starting this auction as low as $500.00 because eBay rules won't allow our account to start it higher as it's only our second sale on eBay and it's within 90 days of our last sale. We're sure the bids will go well past the starting price!)  


On Jun-19-13 at 18:37:41 PDT, seller added the following information:

The heads measure approximately 11 1/4" for the Conga and approximately 12 1/2" for the Tumba.


On Jun-20-13 at 16:47:00 PDT, seller added the following information:

They are approximately 30 1/2" tall.


On Jun-23-13 at 15:25:30 PDT, seller added the following information:

These Valje Congas will be shipped to the winning bidder by USPS "Standard Post," insured and with signature confirmation (upon receipt) at the estimated packed weight of 35 pounds per Conga. Although the packed weight may be less (I haven't received the boxes yet to pack them), I've paid $44.43 for the special boxes from Box City Inc. that Ralph Flores recommended to me ($17.96 for two boxes and $26.47 Fedex shipping), so I'll just charge estimated shipping cost as listed here (based on 35 lbs each) and not add any more charge for the boxes, packing materials or handling. This way, the total shipping/packing charge is rounded down (lower) to the buyer instead of charging for the boxes and other materials and the buyer knows ahead (after emailing me their zip code) the total (with their winning bid) that they'll pay for these Valje congas. For example: for Bay Area (California) zips, shipping is $77.52 for each packed drum ($155.04 for the set); Los Angeles, California is $77.52 for each packed drum ($155.04 for the set); Seattle, Washington is $74.25 for each packed drum ($148.50 for the set); Massachusetts is $117.18 each ($234.36 for the set).
