LP 263A BONGO FELL PROFESSIONAL: the reference to acute bongo skin.

Sylvain996, 28.06.2011
Characteristics and adaptability.

It is the skin of the "macho" (small barrel) of LP galaxy bongos and other models of the mark. This skin is adaptable on almost all bongos of the mark LP (dimension 7.25) (model matador, classic or galaxy) Also on the bongos of other brands that are endowed with skins of the same size (7.25, attention! Some manufacturers make skins of 6.75 for small drum).

Sound quality

This skin of great finesse and very well finished will offer a warm and precise sound to your bongos. Used by virtually all professional bongoceros and percussion masters under contract with LP (Giovanni Hidalgo, Armando Peraza, Raul Rekow), this skin is undoubtedly one of the best bongo skins on the market. It is therefore a very good choice for the regular players (amateurs or professionals) who wish to have a skin that offers a beautiful and warm sound.

The inconvenients

It is one of the most expensive bongo skins on the market, ideal for professional players, it is not really essential for novice players, who do not have a touch and a quality of striking sufficient will not hear Difference between this high-end skin and an entry-level skin (about 20euros against 39 euros for this skin LP).

My opinion

I use this skin on my bongos for years. Because of its great finesse it is used fairly quickly to the striking points (like all natural skins) and it stretches over time under the effect of tension and successive tunings. This LP263 A skins, like all natural skins, have a shorter life span than synthetic skins (Evans brand, Remo or others).
Indeed, natural skins are sensitive to climatic changes, they tend to become hot and dry, and they relax when wet and cool. These changes of tension require daily adjustments for the one who wants to keep the musicality of his bongos.
Personally I also own synthetic skins (I use them when one of my natural skins tears through wear). They have the advantage of being almost insensitive to atmospheric conditions and keep their tension from one day to another. These synthetic skins also have a much colder and dryer (and much less charming) sound than natural skins and LP 263A skin which, in my opinion is almost the best of bongo skins 'actual hour.

In summary

The LP 263A BONGO FELL will offer a beautiful sound to your bongos so it is a great buy for all regular bongo players.

The best bongo on the market

WernerP, 04.03.2010
The bongo of Latin Percussion meets professional requirements. They are of excellent quality. The bongo can be extremely high with these skins, without the fear that there are cracks. Dry and crisp sounds, as every percussionist wants, are so possible. "Santana like" The coat is already reared, so that it only needs to be tuned. I played my bongos with these skins for about 4 years and then changed.

The skins are handpicked with Latin Percussion (handpicked). This makes them very easy to play and have an almost limitless sound diversity. The price-performance ratio is outstanding.
