- Why kiln-dried wood is important
Made from renewable resources
Latin Percussion congas are made from plantation grown wood. By using renewable resources LP protects the world's forests. This helps insure adequate wood supply to produce congas for generations to come. The wood is sorted and graded, only top quality wood is used. LP brand congas must not only look good but stand up to diverse climates and vigorous playing conditions.
Why kiln-dried wood is important
The wood used in LP brand congas is kiln (oven) dried. Why is that important? Using kiln dried wood allows LP to control the wood's moisture content level during the manufacturing process. Wood, even after it is harvested, expands and contracts. The wood used to manufacture all fine wood instruments, including congas, must have just the right moisture content level to help prevent the instrument from cracking and breaking. Latin Percussion congas are played by the world's tweakiest players in all seasons and climates, in every region of the world, using kiln dried wood helps the conga stand up to many different environmental and playing conditions.
Play with confidence
All LP brand congas are fitted with tuning lugs manufactured from specially heat-treated, high-carbon steel that feature precision cut threads for smooth tuning, strength and durability. Due to the enormous amount of the stress that is required to tune a conga head, the design of the sideplate is crucial. During the tuning process there is enormous tension pull-ing on the upper part of the sideplate. Because of this, LP brand sideplates are wider at the top to distribute the tension from the head and rim over a larger surface area. This rocks for more durability.
