To honor their 50th anniversary, LP has produced a limited run of congas and bongos. Produced with dense-toned North American hickory, these drums produce rich, warm tones with resonant lows and mids. For added strength, a ply of fiberglass is built into the center of the 3-ply shell. When tuned high, hickory drums produce loud, crisp, and cutting slaps.

Additionally, the drums are fitted with an extended collar Comfort Curve® II Rims, natural rawhide heads and Premium Galaxy hardware with a satin finish. Also features a commemorative Gold-tone 50th Anniversary badge and reinforced LP heart side plates with rubber gaskets
and 3/8" diameter tuning lugs.

Giovanni Hidalgo a.k.a. "Mañenguito" (born November 22, 1963) is an educator, percussionist and recording artist in the genre of Latin jazz.

Hidalgo auditioned and was hired by the Batacumbele Band in 1980. In 1981, he traveled with the band to Cuba where he met a musician by the name of José Luis Quintana "Changuito". Together they were able to create a unique style of rhythm and ushered in a new musical era in Latin music.

In 1985, Hidalgo was performing with Eddie Palmieri at The Village Gate in New York City, when the legendary jazz musician Dizzy Gillespie walked in and listened to Hidalgo play. He was so impressed with Hidalgo that he told him that someday in the future they must get together and play. In 1988 Hidalgo joined Gillespie's United Nation Orchestra.

In 1992, he was hired as an adjunct professor at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. There he taught many types of rhythms; Puerto Rican, Cuban, Dominican, reggae, African and jazz. He held this academic position until 1996.
