St. Louis Music has been named the U.S. distributor for percussion maker Gon Bops. Founded in 1954, Gon Bops has pioneered several features and improvements in Latin instruments. Since February 2010, it has been a wholly owned subsidiary of Sabian.

“[St. Louis Music] serves so many dealers so well that we look forward to a wider reach into the market, especially the educational world,” said Lane Davy, Gon Bops vice president and executive director.
All instruments will be designed in the United States and made at one of its four factories in the United States, Peru, Taiwan and Thailand. Artists in the Gon Bops family include Alex Acuna, Tommy Aros and Scott Crago.
