Description
 

Watch video demonstration of the LP Accents Richie Gajate Garcia Wood Conga:

LP is pleased to introduce a line of congas and bongos to celebrate the unique style of noted percussionist and recording artist Richie “Gajate” Garcia, the namesake of LP's popular Gajate Bracket. LP Accents Richie Garcia Congas & Bongos feature exclusive Richie Garcia-inspired signature art, applied over 3-ply wood shells of sonically optimal Siam Oak.

Available in Quinto, Conga and Tumba, the drums stand 30” tall and are fitted with hand-selected natural rawhide skins, which provide the drums with their expansive palette of harmonics. The drums are fitted with Comfort Curve II Rims, which are easier on the hands and promote a natural feel. Reinforced LP Side Plates enhance durability, while LP ProCare Integrated Shell Protectors prevent adjacent drums from bumping and marring.

Based on the popular LP Classic Wood Congas, the LP Accents Richie Garcia Congas & Bongos feature a memorable appearance, in part due to the juxtaposition of polished chrome hardware against vivid graphics. These graphics are a story in themselves. Created especially for Richie by artist Hector Garcia, they depict, among other things, an octopus. The creature is significant to one of Richie's nicknames, “El Pulpo”, which likens his incredible independence of arms and feet on drumset with the multiple limbs of the octopus. As to the other figures embodied in the graphics, Richie requested that the artist set them in a tropical, relaxed environment reminiscent of his Puerto Rican heritage. A suggestion of “family” prevails and, to this end, the figures have been depicted generically, such that anyone can identify with them.

Richie's congas and bongos bear his musical and artistic intentions, from the inside of the shell to the outside, and represent thoroughly the embodiment of the notion of “signature drums”. They reflect Richie's musicality, aesthetic sense and style in a unique, warm, and colorful fashion that invites one to play!
