Congas - Made In Germany By Mochtar Borlak?

Last week there was a set of three congas in the German eBay:



As the owner wrote were they built in 1994 by Mochtar Borlak, who at that time lived in Ulm (a town in the south of Germany).



Allegedly his Congas were especially known and appreciated in Brasil. The material seems to be tropical wood and Steve Boston, to whom this series is dedicated, has been the teacher of Nippy Noya in the Netherlands.

In my eyes all these facts appear a little strange. Does anybody know more?

Everything said is correct!

Mochtar who is a good friend made these very high quality conga's in honour of Steve Boston.

Good Luck,

Steve Boston jr.

Hi Steve,

welcome here in percussionforum.net. "Junior" probably means that you are the son of the older Steve Bosten (?).

Can you tell more about those congas? Was it a real model series? Does Mochtar Borlak (sounds like an eastern European name) still live in Germany and is he still building instruments (congas)? I would really like to know more.

Dear Dogpercussion,

Yes I am Steve Boston jr the son of Steve sr.
I think it is probably the best that you send me a private email: boston0@xs4all.nl
Mochtar still lives in Ulm and can answer all your questions.

Regards,

Steve Boston jr.
