Will Sol Ever Start Making Congas Again

Postby Marcus » Thu Mar 15, 2018 2:29 pm

Curious about Akbar and Sol Percussion whether he will ever start making congas again. Must be an agreement with Gonbops and a non-compete clause however there normally is a time limit associated with such an agreement. Or, there are no plans and he is working on other projects which is understandable--people do tend to move on.

Anybody else curious or have some insight.

thx, Marcus

Hello.

I only know he worked a while for LP then, designing (and making ?) two Valje LP bongó, one out of oak and one out of mahogany.

The mahogany model seems to have disappeared from the site.

Ijust sold some congas to a guy who works with Akbar. I was told he is OK doing what he is now doing and has no plans to do anything else now.
