It is not an official LP name or trademark even, but at Drummerszone we call it the 'LP/DW Latin Drum Set'. It is a combination of instruments LP and DW launched and showed at the NAMM show in January. Several of the new instruments that LP launches this year were smoothly blended into a full set-up that not only percussionists would like. You can see the 2-Sided Snare Cajon, the Low Boy Hi-Hat and the new Jingle Rings that you can mount on any Hi-Hat. The DW 5000 Low Boy Hi-Hat is also actually a full instrument that comes with cymbals and a carrying bag.
Watch the video to see what you can do with LP and DW instruments, and check all the specs of the instruments below the video. Ps. if you see a brand new Giovanni Hidalgo Signature Stave Cajon in the video...we'll feature that later!
