The Gon Bops Difference
From the traditional Cuban shape of the Alex Acuna series, to the hand-crafted in the USA California series, Gon Bops Conga Drums are uncompromising in every way, across the entire line.
Gon Bops offers more choice than any other manufacturer.
Gon Bops offers more choice than any other manufacturer. More choice of Wood: Air-Dried Appalachian Red Oak, North American Ash, Durian and Parawood and more choice of Heads: Cowhide, Water Buffalo, Fiberskyn, Nuskyn or Skyndeep.
Gon Bops attention to detail is evident even on the bearing edges of our drums, eliminating dead spots and allowing for perfect tuning, and warm, full sound.
TRADITIONAL AFRO-CUBAN SHAPE
Gon Bops conga shells are shaped in the traditional Afro-Cuban style for increased volume and resonance. These instruments are legendary in every way: sound, design, and performance.
TIGHT PROFILE HARDWARE
Combined with the traditional Cuban shape of our drums, this Gon Bops exclusive design means less pressure on wood and hardware, and less effort required to tune heads and drums.
GON BOPS BACKING PLATE
Smart Gon Bops design protects wood and hardware by extending the backing plate to strengthen areas naturally under stress, but typically left unprotected.
SMART DESIGN SIDE PLATES
Gon Bops Side Plates eliminate need for cup washers, allowing for extended tuning range and longer hardware life.
