Designed by master Conguero, Carlos "Patato" Valdez with LP Music
Carlos "Patato" Valdes played and central part in the development of fiberglass conga drums, in 1978, in collaboration with LP Music's founder, Martin Cohen. It was through a recording session with the legendary "Patato" at Martin Cohen's home studio that the fiberglass congas took root. The design Patato liked most included tall drums with a wide belly and small bottom. So, today LP makes the Patato Series Congas with that as the blueprint.
TestimonialI live in Portland, Oregon and found Greg at Artdrum.com and right from the start I felt very confident in him and his knowledge with LP Congas. I am very particular when it comes to Percussion and what I take in the studio and on the road. Greg was right there with me, giving me advice and insight. Greg's prices are great !!! Service is Great !!! Communication is second to none...oh, and shipping is fast too !!! But mostly he is the Coolest and most patient guy I ever worked with...and I've worked with lots, trust me...I feel very lucky to have found Greg at Artdrum.com.
