Let’s not forget that Latin Percussion simplified the process of tuning congas when it introduced its line of Classic Top-Tuning congas last year. Like magic, percussionists no longer had to turn over the drum or remove it from a stand to tweak its tone. And now the company has expanded the playing field by introducing two sumptuous new finishes in the Classic Top-Tuning line: “Dark Wood,” a deep, transparent cherry-colored stain; and “Vintage Sunburst,” a bright and striking sunburst pattern that graduates from a natural oak color at the center of the shell into a stunning auburn that eventually blends into a deep, rich sable black. Now, that’s a lot more of a “win” than anything Charlie Sheen has seen in recent months.
