A Piece out of 1960s Latin Music History

NYC’s Palladium Ballroom was the place to be for Latin music and dancing in the ’50s and ’60s. Giovanni Hidalgo and LP’s latest collaboration, the Giovanni Palladium conga drum, pays tribute to this hotbed of American Latin music. Its exquisite satin-finished ash shell and real rawhide head provide a period-correct playing experience, while its chrome belly bands give the Palladium conga a deliciously retro look. You still get the modern advantages of LP’s extended-collar Comfort Curve II rim, which helps take the sting out of slaps, and LP’s ProCare Shell Protectors, which rid your instrument of accidental dings when played in multiples. LP’s Heart side plates complete the package, making the LP Giovanni Palladium conga an instrument that Sweetwater knows our percussionist friends will cherish for a lifetime.

The conga drum is the backbone of Latin music. LP is not only the pioneer of this percussion staple, but today is one of the world’s leading manufacturers. LP owes the success of its congas to more than half a century of hardware innovations and old-world construction techniques: like precisely staved hardwood shells and hand-selected rawhide heads. These elements converge to make the LP Giovanni Palladium one of the finest congas on the market.
