LP Galaxy Series Fiberglass Congas
Reinforced with Kevlar
The inside upper half of the drum, where the greatest stress occurs, is reinforced with Kevlar fiber, the bullet-proof vest material that is two times stronger than steel. In addition, each fiberglass shell has a steel ring embedded in the bearing (top) edge for added strength.Hand selected, rawhide heads
LP Galaxy Fiberglass Congas feature hand selected, rawhide heads. The heavy duty hardware has a gold tone finish. It includes 3/8" diameter tuning lugs, and reinforced LP Heart Side Plates, each secured with three bolts and a backing plate.Exclusive LP Galaxy glitter finish
The exclusive LP Galaxy glitter finish is a space age sparkle that defracts light into a spectral effect which dances under stage lighting. Shell Protectors
Each LP Galaxy Fiberglass drum comes complete with LP Galaxy ProCare Integrated Shell Protectors that prevent the side plate hardware from marking or damaging adjacent drums. This new compact design offers maximum protection without detracting from the drum's beauty. An accessory pouch, a tuning wrench and LP Lug Lube are also included.

        Comments about LP Galaxy Series Fiberglass Conga with Gold Hardware:

        These are without a doubt the best congas ever made. They are far more beautiful than the photos show, they project a full rich tone and they are engineered to last a lifetime. I bought the conga and tumba but I plan to also purchase the quinto and requinto when I can afford to. I am impressed with the 3/8" tuning rods and the Kevlar reinforcement that will allow high torque tuning without worry of damage to the drums. They came with high quality bison heads that sounded great but I have replaced them with Remo Skyndeep heads for extra sensitivity and tuning stability.

            Comments about LP Galaxy Series Fiberglass Conga with Gold Hardware:

            I have played the Patato, Original, and Galaxy congas. There all great, but the best is the Galaxy. First I love the look, it has sparkles with the gold heavy duty hardware. The most important reason is the open tone and slaps. The slaps are easy and the open tones sound warmer then the Patato and Original congas. The drums are very responsive, you don't need to play hard to get a sound. The tones are bright, maybe not as much as the Patato, but bright nonetheless. This drum is the king of the fiberglass congas.

            Comments about LP Galaxy Series Fiberglass Conga with Gold Hardware:

            They are expensive. Yes. But you get what you pay for and these congas can't be matched by any other.Tones are beautiful and resonate perfectly and the slaps are incredible. I have had these for over 4 years and wouldn't trade/buy any other instrument.
