Drums- & Percussion
|Santana's percussionists, Karl Perazzo and Raul Rekow, know what it is rise up from the streets. They know that in today's market many percussionists may never have a chance to purchase expensive signature instruments. That's why Karl and Raul teamed up with LP to create a reasonably priced, quality line of congas, bongos, and timbales within the Matador line.
The Karl Perazzo & Raul Rekow Matador Line consists of drums the Santana percussionists would happily play themselves. Accordingly, the drums display the same distinctive finishes seen in concert halls when Karl and Raul play with Santana.
The Raul Rekow Congas feature a 28" tall fiberglass body, cloaked in Raul's signature green glitter, and has tough steel hardware, making for a durable drum with superb projection and round tone. To cushion the hands, Matador Soft Strike rims are standard, while to cushion drums from colliding, LP ProCare Integrated Shell Protectors are fitted to all congas. Drumheads are LP's hand selected natural rawhide.
The bongos also boast Raul's chosen green sparkle finish. Traditional 7-1/4" & 8-5/8" chrome rims, cast aluminum bottoms, and industry standard 5/16" tuning lugs complete an appealing picture.
Karl Perazzo Timbales feature 14" and 15" diameter shells are 6-1/2"deep with traditional tuning. Painted in Karl's chosen heritage colors, red, white, and green, the drums will look unique on any stage.
