About the product
The Latin Percussion has introduced its new range of drums in Matador series with Puerto Rican Wood. The series is named so for being inspired by the Puerto Rican flag. The product’s key highlight is the professional sound quality production. Other than this the design and soft striking rims are unique. This feature enables the drummer to produce better notes even at the less striking effort.
Product construction details

The dimension details of the product are 32 inches of height and 17 inches in length and breadth with approx. 35 pounds of weight. The design is achieved by adding 3 ply shell layers to it for better functionality and durability. The ends are well framed with sleek finishing. Whereas the drum head is well mounted with natural rawhide head and soft striking rim. Premium quality of Chrome hardware is used. The tuning lugs are made at 5/16 inches of diameter attached with uniquely designed horn shaped side plates. The accomplishment is done with the Latin Percussion patented shell protectors. The cooler tone of hardware over the bright colours of flag gives the whole pattern a traditional style.
