Gon Bops

Gon Bops founder Mariano Bobadilla built only one line of drums special enough to put his name on: the Mariano Series.

Today Gon Bops is proud to offer a modern version of their classic instrument of legend. A lot of time and effort was devoted to finding a wood that was similar in both physical properties and sound to the original Gon Bops Mariano Series Congas. After intensive research and experimentation, durian wood was selected. Lighter in weight than the other woods Gon Bops uses for its drums, Durian wood is harvested from old, non-productive fruit trees that are then replanted making it a sustainable resource.

To round out the vintage sound of this series, the drums feature traditional counter hoops and authentic Latin American cowhide heads. Gon Bops makes the Mariano Series in the traditional Cuban shape. These drums feature Gon Bops compact hardware which is engineered to decrease the stress on the shell and hardware making it more durable and easier to tune.


The latest reincarnation of a legendary conga series was worth waiting for!

Comments about Gon Bops Mariano Series Conga:

The thick & rough skin head kills the drum and is no good for any fast finger action. The double lip on the top of the drum is also a playing problem. If you are strictly a flat hand slap player this drum might work OK. This drum should use a thinner, smooth finished rawhide skin, like the older Gon Bops and get rid of the double lip!
