LP Original Bongos

Beautiful and accurate reissue of the original bongos that launched Latin Percussion.

Latin Percussion is celebrating 50 years of making the finest percussion instruments with the reintroduction of the first set of bongos produced by LP. A replica of the set first crafted by LP Founder Martin Cohen in 1964, each set of Original Bongos is a faithful re-creation of the satin mahogany drums, complete with original 1964 head graphics, natural rawhide heads and special commemorative badge.

Outfitted with traditional chrome-plated rims and hardware, the LP Original Bongos (LP1964 – MSRP: $479.00) are made with 6-3/4″ and 8-1/4″ diameter shells.

“I could not be more excited to see the beautifully executed LP Original Bongos that represents the beginnings of Latin Percussion,” said Martin Cohen, Founder of Latin Percussion.
