LP Matador Wood Bongo Drums
Meet the prototype for the modern bongo. Matadors are LP's unsung heroes, their design reflects the first generation of products that put this trailblazing percussion company on the map in the late-1960s. The wood is trusty Siam oak, the same as most of LP's standard-setting drums. The no-frills, no-nonsense design is what's best about these, it's what makes them lighter than anything else on this list. Matador bongos even come with superior stock rawhide skins compared to LP's more expensive models with water buffaloes. And with higher quality synthetic or custom-made mule or rawhide heads, Matadors truly project the sound of vintage salsa like no other. Viva el Matador!
