Designed with the help of percussion maestro Montalvo.
Listen to any of the classic, quintessential salsa recordings of Hector Lavoe, Willie Colon, The Fania All Stars, Ruben Blades, and countless others and you will hear the unmistakable tumbao of the great conguero Eddie Montalvo. Eddie is a main inspiration to today's players by way of his numerous, historic recordings with the giants of salsa.
It is only fitting that LP honors Eddie Montalvo with the introduction of the LP Accents Eddie Montalvo Signature Series.
These bongos have standard 7-1/4" and 8-5/8" diameter heads. They're fitted with hand-selected natural rawhide skins that provide the drums with the range of deep tones and crisp slaps inherent in Eddie's technique. Comfort Curve II Rims ease player hand trauma and promote a natural feel. Reinforced LP Side Plates contribute to durability, while LP ProCare Integrated Shell Protectors prevent those side plates from damaging adjacent drums!
