Latin Percussion is excited to present the all-new E-Class Signature Series; a collection of instruments that represent the unique sound and style of the Escovedo’s, the first family of Latin Jazz. The collection is comprised of LP E-CLASS Timbales, LP E-CLASS Bongo Set, and the LP E-CLASS Quinto, Conga and Tumba.
Emblazoned with a signature E logo, the line pays tribute to the Escovedo’s patriarch and legendary percussionist Pete Escovedo, his daughter Sheila E, and sons, Peter Michael and Juan. Each has enjoyed notable careers, playing with a long list of the music world’s most notable luminaries, as well as enjoying chart topping hits and successful solo careers. When they come together to play it’s a rhythmic family experience that’s undeniably electric.
LP E-CLASS Timbales (LP1415-EC) are manufactured with 6 1/2” deep chrome plated steel shells in 14” and 15” diameters. Complemented with black nickel plated hardware and LP’s patented Top Tuning, they are well suited for studio, but have been designed to steal the stage. The set comes complete with a heavy-duty, height-adjustable stand, hex cowbell bracket, sticks and a tuning wrench. Retail $1,030.99
LP E-Class Bongos (LP201AX-EC) are crafted from Siam Oak and topped with 7-1/4″ and 8-5/8″ handpicked rawhide heads. LP Comfort Curve II™ Rims, 5/16” diameter tuning lugs, steel backing plate and plated cast aluminium bottoms accentuate the superior build quality of the drums. Retail $492.99
LP E-Class Congas include Quinto (LP522T-EC), Conga (LP559T-EC) and Tumba (LP552T-EC) sizes and have 3-ply 30” tall Siam Oak shells with a striped natural/walnut stain finish. Included are handpicked rawhide heads, Top-Tuning Comfort Curve II rims heavy-duty 5/16” tension rods and LP’s patented ProCare™ Shell Protectors.
