LP Palisades Park, NJ. Awesome Find, Barely Used!!

Postby Juaort » Sat Jul 27, 2019 8:16 pm

Hi Bongoceros! Wanted to share the following. I stumbled upon a barely touched set of late 60’s to early 70’s Palisades Park Bongos. Got them from the original owner. Mahogany wood with Cuban style bottoms. This is the second set I currently own. I consider myself lucky. Also got an original LP Bongo case with it.

Congratulations on an exceptional find. The set looks to be in immaculate condition, and to think that you got them from the original owner, a big plus!!! Thanks for sharing,

I got real lucky with these. The original owner used them in photo shoots. Not sure if for LP or not, but he never played them.

I decided to mount new skins in my Palisades. I’m keeping the original skins, but I went ahead and mounted two new skins. I was recently in Puerto Rico and purchased some Cueros de Vaca (I Racked Up) to put on the Macho and I picked up a Dark Brown Steer Cuero from Manito Percussion for the Hembra. The set now looks stunning with the new skins. It also sounds amazing!!!

What do you Bongoceros think?

Regards,

Juaort
