Artist Series drum with authentic salsa sound and performance.
Latin Percussion honors Eddie Montalvo with their Accents Eddie Montalvo Signature Series Congas.
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.
The Eddie Montalvo Series Conga drums are available in three sizes: Quinto (11"), conga (11.75"), and tumba (12.5"). They stand 30" tall and are 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!
