One of the most highly regarded conga builders in the percussion industry, and the drums that bear his name – The Mariano Series from Gon Bops.
Gon Bops founder Mariano Bobadilla built only one line of drums special enough to bear his name – the Mariano Series. Today, Gon Bops is proud to offer a modern version of these legendary instruments. Their vintage character has been painstakingly preserved using traditional counter hoops, authentic Latin American cowhide heads – and most importantly, Durian wood construction.
In order to match the sound and feel of Mariano’s legendary Cuban drums, wood from the Durian fruit tree was chosen for its light weight and strength. Widely revered in Southeast Asia and the “King of Fruit" Durian fruit tree wood was also determined to be the closest match to the performance properties of Philippine mahogany, originally used by Mariano for his signature line.
