Giovanni Hidalgo has played a major role in shaping the way the world thinks about hand drumming, and has played LP exclusively for his entire career. Giovanni replicates sounds with his hands that drummers normally make with sticks. Ambidextrous, with faultless technical skills and superb musicality, he has created a style all his own. Giovanni’s LP product line includes the Palladium Congas, Compact Congas and Galaxy Congas, as well as bongos, timbales, djembes and bags. Our patented and award-winning design allows easy placement with drum kits. The sound projects as well as full size bongos and can be played with sticks or hands. The LP Galaxy Congas have resonance, attack and warmth found in no other conga. They deliver commanding bass, rich mid-tones and crackling highs with attention getting projection. LP utilized Master Conguero Giovanni Hildago’s input to create the exclusive Requinto, which has the broadest range of tone available in a single drum.
