Gon Bops founder Mariano Bobadilla built only one line of drums special enough to bear his name, the Mariano series. Today, Gon Bops is proud to offer a modern version of these legendary bongos. Their vintage character has been painstakingly preserved using traditional counter hoops, authentic Latin American cowhide heads -- and most importantly, Durian wood construction.

Durian Tree Wood
In order to match the sound and feel of Mariano's legendary Cuban drums, wood from the Durian fruit tree was chosen for its light weight and strength. Widely revered in Southeast Asia as the "King of Fruit", Durian fruit tree wood was also determined to be the closest match to the performance properties of Philipine Mahogany, originally used by Mariano for his signature line. Harvested from old, non-producing trees that are immediately replanted, Durian wood is a sustainable resource. It's a smart, environmentally responsible choice of wood for this legendary drum line.
