Gon Bops

Gon Bops started in 1954 when Mariano Bobadilla started to make congas in his father's LA garage. It would not take long until he was regarded as one of the top conga builders in the industry. Early success only furthered the quality and craftsmanship of the instruments. Over the years leading companies like DW and now Sabian own and ensure that Gon Bops maintains it's reputation of the finest quality Latin percussion instruments.
