LP Bongo Cajon and Giovanni Series Prestige Timbales
The Bongo Cajon is compact in size (15.75″ long by 7″ wide) and features lightweight plywood construction. The instrument’s textured sides are contoured to fit comfortably on a player’s lap or to be held between the knees in the traditional bongo playing position. The open-bottom, twin-chamber shell produces complementary high and low pitches. List price: $75.
Giovanni series Prestige timbales have 6.5×13 and 6.5×14 phosphor bronze shells. Above and below the ribs, the shells are buffed to a high gloss, while the area between the ribs is sanded and buffed to create a matte finish. To ensure precise and secure tuning, the drums feature a recessed top tuning system that uses oversize bolts. The set also comes with a chrome-plated heavy-duty stand, as well as a cowbell bracket and a pair of timbale sticks. List price: $965.
