From the beginning, LP has let those who play their instruments do most of the talking.
The company's first endorsee was Afro-Cuban and Jazz drummer Willie Bobo. Today, LP has over 500 endorsees worldwide - a list which reads as a veritable "who's who" in the music world. Musicians like Karl Perazzo, Raul Rekow, Giovanni Hidalgo, Armando Peraza, Travis Barker, Chris Pennie, Steve Gadd, Peter Erskine and many more who all use LP instruments. Because they are the best of the best performers and musicians - their equipment needs to be the best as well.
The company that started in the Cohen garage now has a staff of research, design and product developers that keep an ongoing stream of innovative products coming. In addition, over 250 people are employed at the manufacturing facility based in Thailand. What began as a small family operation has grown to become the renowned business of Latin Percussion, the world's largest producer of hand percussion instruments.
