LP – Uptown Sculpted Ash Congas and Valje Bongos
by Michael Dawson On 27th Sep 2017
LP has been at the forefront of hand percussion since introducing its first wood conga, the Classic Model, in 1972. Now an industry standard, the Classic series is available in various natural and painted finishes, and the company recently expanded the line to include a unique Sculpted Ash veneer in a dark ebony stain. This new subseries, dubbed the Uptown, includes a trio of congas (11" quinto, 11.75" conga, and 12.5" tumba) and matching bongos. We were sent the congas to review, along with two pairs of vintage-inspired Valje bongos.
