The Premiere Series has a new look with new features introduced at the 98 summer NAMM show. The redesigned Premiere Series features a durable weather resistant fiberglass shells and Remo Mondo heads to create what we at Toca refer to as an "all weather" conga and bongo. Finally, a professional series conga and bongo set that can withstand the elements of the weather without shell damage or having to re-tune the drum to pitch after every song. Toca Premiere Series combines a fiberglass, contemporary styled Afro-Cuban bowl with an enhanced bearing edge that feels just like wood, fitted with Toca's EasyPlay hoop and a Remo Mondo head to create this one of a kind series. These drums are completely weather durable but still produce that rich warm Toca sound you would expect from a wood series drum. Check out the Premiere Series in Mid-Night Blue or the new Red Black Fade finishes, drum sizes include 11", 11 3/4" , and 12 1/2" 6-lug congas and matching bongos, they feel and sound like wood, but they're not.
Toca Percussion was built on a foundation rich in tradition with some product designs based off the original hand drums of the past. The Toca Traditional Series continues the tradition of Afro-Cuban shell design by utilizing an extremely tapered bowl to get the most bass tones out of the 11", 11 3/4", and 12 1/2" sized drums. All drums have durable chrome-plated hardware, Toca's four-bolt tension plate, and a traditional hoop fitted with a top-grade bison skins. All these design features create the authentic Afro-Cuban look and sound, thus giving this series the name "Traditional". These drums are offered in Cherry stain and Toca's new Santa Fe White lacquer finishes.
