Hey folks...I am looking to see if any on of you have or know of someone who has one of LP's store demo congas for sale. The drum I am looking for is a store unit they made a few years back that has all of the various colors that they offer, all of the different hardware options, was half wood and half fiberglass - all in one drum. Was not really made to be played - was not sold in stores...was given to stores so customers could see what different options they had when ordering a custom LP classic. I have one that is 11 3/4 (conga) and I don;t know if they made anything other than the 11 3/4 conga...but LP has since stopped the custom ordering conga options so I found that several stores where just trashing the drums. I kinda like them because of the unique colors - if you have one that you are willing to part with for a reasonable price...can you get back to me? email@example.com
No...those are Palladiums...very nice...,but not what I am talking about. These were actually just store demos so if you were interested in buying a set of custom classics...you could look at one of these drums and see every option available....each stave is several different colors, each lug has a different finish as do the sideplates and rim...they are a complete and utter mess...but I kinda like it. I would be guessing...but they may have come up with the idea for the multi-color palladiums in your post from this demo.
I am going to call LP again and see if I can get a lead,
