Gigbag: April 2002

LP Fiberglass Requinto Conga

Latin Percussion’s update on the 9 3/4-inch head Requinto conga will please congueros and treehuggers alike. Its contoured body is formed from fiberglass, not the customary wood, yet produces tones just as pleasing, from crisp slaps to deep, open booms. Like the wooden Requintos, the fiberglass congas have gold extended collar rims, 5/16 inch tuning rods, reinforced LP heart side plates and hand selected, natural rawhide heads. Available in either Accents or Galaxy styles. www.lpmusic.com
