The Ahead Armor 30" x 12" Conga Case has some innovative features that are truly worth a detailed investigation. All of the Armor cases have a heavy-duty, waterproof, 600 denier polyester exterior, complemented inside by their "DX-Core": two layers of high-impact foam padding and a soft interior lining of premium Sherpa Fleece. This combination offers the snugness and smaller dimensions of soft cases, while still retaining the resistance and strength of hard plastic cases. The conga cases also feature 'Tuc-Away' backpack straps and heavy-duty handles, as well as a small exterior pocket to hold accessories like ear plugs and conga wrenches. Finally, Ahead Armor Cases has made it easier than ever to get your drum in and out of its case with the 'Dynazip' zipper - running from the perimeter of the head all the way down one side, this zipper eliminates the usual post-gig struggle to get the conga back in its case.
