Tito Puente will forever be known as “El Rey del Timbal” (The King of Timbale). He is remembered for his fiery Mambo and Latin Jazz compositions that fueled his career for an impressive 50 years. He brought timbales to the forefront of the world of percussion and to every stage on which he played, cementing his status as a music icon.
Tito Puente incorporated LP Timbalitos into his set-up in 1979 after a world tour. They have a distinct sound and provide a great contrast to other timbales.
