Luis Conte model
Starting with the Luis Conte signature model, these Siam oak bongos are outfitted with True Skin cow heads and feature the traditional solid woodblock connection, a design element that Luis wanted to include on the bongos bearing his name. Other professional bongos have shells that are contoured to form greater resonance by having a slight hour glass shape.
