Conga drums are often described as having "warm, woody tones." But they're rarely described as "portable." LP's new LapTop Conga replicates those woody tones?in an instrument that's actually made of wood-with the added bonus take-anywhere portability.

The LapTop Conga is essentially a shallow box measuring 11-½" wide, 19-½" long, and 3" deep. The box sits comfortably across a player's lap, while an attached strap goes under the legs or around the waist to secure it. The waist strap also allows the LapTop Conga to be played in a standing position.

The unique acoustic feature of the LapTop Conga is that it produces two distinctly different pitches, just as a pair of conga drums can do. This is achieved by the creation of two carefully dimensioned chambers within the select plywood shell. The shell itself provides a rich tonality and excellent projection.

Simple, lightweight, portable, and easy to play, the LP LapTop Conga is sure to become a popular choice among percussion professionals and hobbyists alike.

It takes a while to learn what this instrument can do, but after a bit of time with it I would say it is pretty fun. Despite the name, it won't sound very much like congas, and it won't sound a whole lot like a cajon. It is somewhere between those two instruments. It is a dry sound without much resonance, but it still has a pleasant tone. It sounds really good with brushes, which is my favorite way to play it. With hands the drum flops around a little bit more, but with brushes there is more control. The other obvious benefit of this is the portability compared to congas or cajons. It is very easy to move and is very lightweight.

  • As the laptop is to the desktop, the Giovanni Series Compact Conga is to Giovanni Hidalgos signature full-size drum. The slender counterpart sits comfortably atop a standard snare drum stand, offering a new definition of conga portability. In addition, it will fit where others dare not go: small apartments, practice cubicles, or even the space between the hi-hat and the crash cymbal in a drumset. The sound is surprisingly full and delivers tradit...
