LP Durian Wood Congas and Bongos

Each drum features exotic durian wood and black mirror-chrome appointments.

Latin Percussion is proud to introduce LP Durian Classic drums, a new series of premium congas and bongos fashioned from exotic durian fruitwood, known to Southeast Asia. With a rich, projecting sound similar to that of some mahogany blends. LP Durian congas are 25% lighter than LP Classic Series Congas made from Siam Oak.

Durian wood bongos include contoured shells featuring Comfort Curve rims for ease of playing in any setting. Durian drums feature a dark, high-gloss finish and black mirror-chrome hardware, and are fitted with extended collar rims and pre-fitted slide mounts for quick, convenient setup.

LP Durian Classic Series drums are available in 11″ Quinto (MSRP: $699), 11-3/4″ Conga (MSRP: $679) and 12 -1/2″ Tumbadora (MSRP: $729). LP Durian Classic Series bongos (MSRP: $425) are fitted with 7-1/4″ and 8-5/8″ heads.

The look of these Durian wood drums is absolutely striking. This exotic wood offers a warm, open sound that can stand on its own or integrate seamlessly with a large percussion setup,” said Victor Filonovich, Director of Product for Latin Percussion.
