Conga drums are often described as having “warm, woody tones.” But they’re rarely described as “portable.” LP’s new LapTop Conga replicates those woody tones—in an instrument that’s actually made of wood—with the added bonus take-anywhere portability. The LapTop Conga is essentially a shallow box measuring 11-½" wide, 19-½" long, and 3" deep. The box sits comfortably across a player’s lap, while an attached strap goes under the legs or around the waist to secure it. The waist strap also allows the LapTop Conga to be played in a standing position.
The unique acoustic feature of the LapTop Conga is that it produces two distinctly different pitches, just as a pair of conga drums can do. This is achieved by the creation of two carefully dimensioned chambers within the select plywood shell. The shell itself provides a rich tonality and excellent projection. Simple, lightweight, portable, and easy to play, the LP LapTop Conga is sure to become a popular choice among percussion professionals and hobbyists alike.
