Gon Bops founder Mariano Bobadilla built only one line of drums special enough to carry his name. Today, we are proud to offer a modern version of these legendary instruments. Their vintage character has been preserved using traditional counter hoops, Gon Bops natural hide heads and Durian wood construction. One-of-a-kind, Mariano drums offer authentic sound, from big, beefy open tones to crisp slaps and solid palm sounds. If you are ready to move up to a truly classy set of instruments, look no further.
Blending the Flamenco tradition of Spain with the authentic Folk tradition of Peru, Gon Bops has created a remarkable Cajon that boasts two playable panels. Its unique sideways sound port design allows performers to play either the front or back panel…or both. In addition, the Flamenco side provides guitar string wires while the traditional side does not, for maximum versatility in tone. For bigger, tighter bass response, the traditional side features a partially sealed playing panel. The Flamenco side also maximizes bass response with diagonally placed snare wires for reduced snare buzz, while maintaining plenty of “snap” when playing slap tones. If versatility is what you need, look no further than these two remarkable Cajons in a single box!
Truly a work of art! This beautifully and painstakingly hand-inlayed instrument is also one of the most versatile Cajons on the market. Its deep, resonant bass tone is awe-inspiring. Playing with hands closer to the edges results in multiple levels of “snap” as the minimalist guitar string wires are engaged, resulting in some truly sublime effects. Wires are configured diagonally across the corners for reduced snare sound when playing bass tones. An increased number of adjustable screws also results in greater control over snap and resonance. The seamless finish features Peruvian hardwood dovetailed corners with smoothly rounded joints. And individual multi-coloured wood tiles are arranged into a spectacular wooden mosaic. Hand-crafted and meticulously tested in Peru by our skilled craftsmen!
