LP, or “Latin Percussion”, create the best percussion instruments including congas, timbales, cowbells, shakers, drum set add-ons & more. Founded in New York City in 1964 by Martin Cohen, the company was a response to restrictions on imports of Cuban goods following the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962. Unable to buy the instruments, he manufactured his own. After many attempts he produced good results, and found a market waiting for him. The company grewa and started to export the instruments they made.

Whether you need shakers, cajons, bongos or congas, LP will have the percussion instrument you need.
