      OVERVIEW

      LP Legend Johnny "Dandy" Rodriguez, Jr. Bongos speak of a man for whom bongos were his sole focus. These LP bongos incorporate prized European beech that cuts through with tone, and well-defined bottom end. The bongos feature authentic Cuban style steel bottoms, traditional rims, specially-selected matched hide heads, and a small center block for picking the drums up with one hand.

      The son of respected Latin musician Johnny Rodriguez, Sr., "Dandy" Rodriguez apprenticed with stalwarts Ray Barretto and Tipica '73 before beginning a 27-year tenure playing bongos and bells with the Tito Puente Orchestra. This was an era when bongo playing was a true art form and the LP Legend Series Johnny "Dandy" Rodriguez, Jr. Bongos keep the noble profession alive. Dandy's flourish, snappy technique and incredible charisma influenced generations of percussionists.

      The sonic signature of this Latin pioneer.

            Well I finally received my bongos and I play for a few hours. These are professional bongos, if you are a beginner don't waste your time with these bongos, the sound is outstanding playability is perfect. On the high bongo I put a Evans head and it's perfect. I have been playing bongos for at least 40 years, I love these bongos.

              Great Sound, Great Grip that you can grab in the middle with just one hand,Great Finish, and love the sound on the big drum or Hembra...Once you break them in, the rims will be a perfect fit, even though I like the rims the way they are, close to the skins...Has to be the Best Lp Bongo ever made...TRUST THE LEADER!

              Fantastic !!!!!!

              Comments about LP Johnny Rodriguez, Jr. Legend Bongos:

              This bongo is by far the best one Lp has made in a very long time. The upper edges are something that the Lp bongos troubled me in the past because the heads, specially the small one braked a lot if I tried to tune it very high. This model along with the Valje series produce a very warm but powerful sound, perfect for both studio and live work a like.

              Best Lp Bong

              Comments about LP Johnny Rodriguez, Jr. Legend Bongos:

              This is the best Lp Bong out of the box that I have ever play. The skins are good and the sound is sweet old school. The rim on the bigger shell should be lower in order to be more comfortable to play, other than that it is a fine Bong with and excellent quality.

              LP Dandy Bongos

              Comments about LP Johnny Rodriguez, Jr. Legend Bongos:

              I bought this bongo and wow! The sound out of this baby is better than any bongo I've ever played. It has a deep base sound with high popping pitch on the macho. This is just like my friends old Cuban bongos. The rim is a little high but within time it will lower as the skin adjusts. Definetly worth every penny.
