The late Carlos √íPatato√ď Valdez√ē remarkable career and ground-breaking multi-conga technique has inspired countless drummers, percussionists, and music lovers. His contribution to Latin music includes a unique √ímelodic√ď approach to conga playing, and has enabled his legacy to live on through his music. Played by professional congueros the world over, these fiberglass drums were developed in 1978 with √íPatato√ď, who required tall drums with a wide belly and small bottom that could project deep bass tones and great volume without sacrificing crisp, high sounds. They have the same shape as the Galaxy¬® Fiberglass Congas, which are perfect for any style of music and sound great live.
