The Patato Model Conga is just one example of the innovation brought on by this great musician and performer. Played by professional congueros the world over, these fiberglass drums were developed in 1978 after a recording session with the legendary "Patato" at the studio in Martin Cohen's home. Carlos Valdez's own design required tall drums with a wide belly and small bottom. Standing 30" tall, these congas project deep bass tones and great volume without sacrificing crisp, high sounds. Shaped identical to the Galaxy Fiberglass Congas, these drums are perfect for any style of music and are great for live playing.

Features include Chrome LP Comfort Curve II Rims, 5/16" diameter tuning lugs, Reinforced LP Heart Side Plates, hand selected natural rawhide heads, bearing edge steel ring for added strength and stability, and LP ProCare Integrated Shell Protectors to prevent the side plate hardware from marking or damaging adjacent drums. An accessory pouch, tuning wrench, and LP Lug Lube are also included.
