With a passion for music and a drive to create some of the best looking and sounding percussion instruments the world has ever seen, Gon Bops is the self-proclaimed "Best in percussion since 1954". Highly regarded for the quality of their instruments, it's their storied past and Cuban-influence that have made them kings of this industry. Starting with simple designs and adding to them as the years progressed, there's nothing else out there like a Gon Bops instrument. So how are you planning to shake things up? Regardless of if it's with a hand drum, timbale, samba, tambourine or effect, you'll be able to find what you're looking for in this section. Once you've made a decision on what you want to play, then it's time to get down to picking out a specific instrument. If you're looking at hand drums, and are just starting out in percussion, take a look at the Bongo Cajon or any of the claves just to get a feel for the style of play. Extremely playable and definitely affordable, these instruments are a great introduction to percussion. Once you're ready to kick things up a notch, just look at any of the Alex Acuna series of instruments and prepare to be blown away. Professional-grade, these hand drums have a flair that refuses to be ignored!
If you're looking for something else to add some heat to your sound, there are hand bells, shakers, rattleclaps, maracas, chimes, satellite bells, maribulas and more all offered in this section. Honestly, no matter how you want to enhance your percussion arrangement, Gon Bops has made sure you can find it here.
Used by top artists around the world in a seemingly unending variety of genres, Gon Bops' reputation speaks for itself. Legendary performer Memo Acevedo, Slash's Brent Fitz, Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Brazilian sensation Gibi Dos Santos and so many others all choose Gon Bops to create their signature sounds. If you want to one day add your name to that list, the best place to start is by picking up and playing one of the dynamic instruments.
