Giovanni Compact Congas are one of the most innovative
percussion instruments of the decade, a notion that
has the consensus of the industry, as reflected in
international awards such as the MIPA and consumer
voted wins in both Modern Drummer and DRUM! Magazines.
To use these smart sized yet full sized sounding
shallow congas, drummers worldwide have devised various
systems for mounting them. They've tried everything
from chemistry-style clamps to snare stands to the
always reliable lap!
Latin Percussion felt it was nigh time to standardize things with
player in mind. The new LP Compact Mounting System
consists of a bracket that will enable the secure
positioning of two Compact Congas. Designed for easy
placement in complex drumsets and multi-percussion
set ups, the mounting system includes a tilting mechanism
that places the portable congas in optimum position
for playing with hands or sticks. The unit can be
used as a single compact conga mount and will adapt
to various racks and stands. The whole assembly can
be put in place in minutes. If you are looking for a stand for your Compact Conga Mounting System, you will need the LP Percussion Stand (LP332).
Like most forward looking musicians, you've probably
admired the LP Compact Congas but wondered how you
could properly integrate them into your set up. They've responded to your concerns with
the introduction of the Compact Mounting System,
designed for various racks and stands, and believe
you'll admire its essential simplicity and functionality.
