To celebrate the coronation of His Majesty King Charles III this May in London, Percussion Play, the UK based outdoor musical instruments company, has launched a new limited-edition version of the company's popular outdoor conga drums. Decorated in the quintessentially British Union Jack flag, the trio of Congas have been appropriately named Coronation Congas and are available to order now, in time for delivery ahead of the coronation*.
The momentous occasion will be a time for celebration and community spirit, with music set to be at the very heart of the coronation, thanks to the King's well-known love of music.
The Coronation Congas are a trio of single-headed drums mounted onto two stainless steel posts to be installed either directly into the ground or surface fixed. Played with the hands, the drums have heavy-duty ABS plastic caps, each wrapped in a vinyl union jack graphic and coated with a clear lacquer. They are suitable for outdoor locations such as parks, trails, school playgrounds, and outdoor community spaces.
