Gon Bops Authentic hand percussion is made by hand to be played by hand. Since 1954, Gon Bops conga drums have been cherished by the world's top players for their unmistakable sound, look and feel. Available in Natural Satin Oil (NS) and rich Mahogany Satin Oil (MS), the new generation of Gon Bops California Series congas are crafted from the finest hand-selected, air-dried, quarter-sawn Red Appalachian Oak. Each stave is meticulously cut and bent by hand, steel rings hand-hammered into place, then cured for months. The shells are then hand-glued and again, hammered to shape. Many months later they are ready to be turned by an artisan who has made these shells the old-fashioned way for more than 20 years. Once they are sanded to a baby-soft finish, nearly one full year has passed. California Series congas feature Gon Bops contour crown hoops, reinforced, quad-bolted side-plates, Remo NuSkyn heads for optimal tunability and consistency. The final result is a Cuban-style drum with classic flair and a sound that is pure Gon Bops.
