Made from renewable resources

Latin Percussion Galaxy Giovanni Quintos are made from plantation grown wood. By using renewable resources LP protects the world's forests. This helps insure adequate wood supply to produce quintos for generations to come. The wood is sorted and graded, only top quality wood is used. LP brand quintos must not only look good but stand up to diverse climates and vigorous playing conditions.

Why kiln-dried wood is important

The wood used in LP brand quintos is kiln (oven) dried. Why is that important? Using kiln dried wood allows LP to control the wood's moisture content level during the manufacturing process. Wood, even after it is harvested, expands and contracts. The wood used to manufacture all fine wood instruments, including quintos, must have just the right moisture content level to help prevent the instrument from cracking and breaking. Latin Percussion quintos are played by the world's most demanding players in all seasons and climates, in every region of the world, using kiln dried wood helps the Latin Percussion Galaxy Giovanni Quinto stand up to many different environmental and playing conditions.

Play with confidence

All LP brand quintos are fitted with tuning lugs manufactured from specially heat-treated, high-carbon steel that feature precision cut threads for smooth tuning, strength and durability. Due to the enormous amount of the stress that is required to tune a quinto head, the design of the sideplate is crucial. During the tuning process there is enormous tension pull-ing on the upper part of the sideplate. Because of this, LP brand sideplates are wider at the top to distribute the tension from the head and rim over a larger surface area. This provides for additional durability.
