For over half a century, LP has crafted classic percussion instruments, as well as patented hundreds of improvements and new designs for musical instruments that meet the exacting standards of professional musicians.
Latin Percussion instruments have been featured in thousands of the world’s most famous, chart-topping recordings – from classic salsa – to classic rock. In fact, LP is such an essential part of so many musical genres, it’s nearly impossible to turn on a radio or listen to a playlist and not hear an LP instrument.

Bongo and Conga tuning tips
Tuning opposites is they key!
1. Using your tuning key/ wrench, tighten one nut a ¾ rotation.
2. Next, tune the nut that is opposite it.
3. Then move along one nut and tune it, followed by the nut opposite again.
In other words, we don’t tune each nut moving around in a circle.
This technique helps pull the head down evenly and will give your drum the best possible sound.
A tuning wrench is included.
