The Pulse

23.06.2015
This was the first time I bought a set of bongos so I can't make any comparisons. I was also a beginner as far as playing bongos were concerned. Although I play guitar and sing lead vocals in a band which has a percussionist playing a Wave Drum, I write my own songs and like to record them myself using a variety of instrumentation and needed some means of playing and adding percussion. I liked the sound of the bongos and thought they would fit well into a particular song I had written and begun recording with a view to uploading it to the BBC Introducing website.

I bought bongos from Thomann because of the good range of drums on offer by comparison with other UK suppliers. I liked the appearance of the Meinl Woodcraft bongos and the sound clips I listened to set them apart from some of the other lower priced bongos available. I had also read some good reviews elsewhere.

I wasn't disappointed once the bongos were delivered to me, along with a seated Meinl bongo stand and bongo bag. I was soon in business, on the one hand learning how to play some traditional rhythms from an instructional DVD whilst also recording a percussion track to complete the song which I subsequently uploaded to the BBC Introducing website.

There are many people much better qualified than me to write about the quality of Meinl's Woodcraft bongos in comparison with other makes etc. I can only say I am very happy with them and although the guitar is my first instrument, I enjoy playing my bongos when I can.

Super Bongos in every way!

Oliver28, 24.05.2016
I am not a bongo expert ... but can say that these bongos are best processed and varnished. In addition, they look great and above all: they sound outstanding!

I've recorded it with a Beyerdynamic MC-930 stereo set and am absolutely thrilled: they sound in my ears completely and can go through the mix right away - even without much post-processing. Super great!

But ATTENTION: in my case the Meinl stand "THBS" did not fit! I do not know whether this is generally so, or whether my copy was inaccurately processed - in any case, the bongos did not fit properly into the quick release. The Meinlständer "TMB" fits however.
