LP has re-introduced the very first instrument ever produced by founder - Martin Cohen. In 1964, Martin Cohen set out to build his first set of wood bongos, based on the desired specifications of the local musicians. It was from there that LP was born.
These throwback bongos feature satin-finished mahogany shells that are fitted with chrome rims and hardware. These bongos appeal to the retro senses with original 1964 printed head graphics and badge.

Comments about Original 1964 Bongos:
THESE ARE REALLY WELL MADE BONGOS- EVERYTHING IS SPOT ON AS TO CONSTRUCTION, MATERIALS AND HARDWARE. THE ONLY PROBLEM IS THAT THEY ARE TOO SMALL. THEY ARE ADVERTISED AS 6.75" AND 8.5", BUT ACTUALLY ARE 6.5" AND 8" WHICH MEANS YOU CAN'T FIT A SYNTHETIC HEAD ON THE MACHO. GREAT DESIGN, BUT WHY USE THE ORIGINAL ARCHAIC DIMENSIONS? I WOULD LOVE TO GET THESE IN 7.15" AND 8.5' OR EVEN BETTER- 9" FOR THE HEMBRA. UNLESS YOU ARE BUYING THESE FOR YOUR DAUGHTER FORGET IT.
