Authentic bongo sounds!
Anthony8164, 26.08.2015
It took me a while to get used to these - I found I had to play with a more force than required on traditional calfskin bongos but once I got used to it I was able to get good quality sounds in both sections. This works both with single finger strokes, full hand strokes and slaps (as long as you dampen the head with the other hands). The sound resembles a set of larger bongos with relatively thick heads but with plenty of woody overtones, you can't get the very high pitched tones possible on bongos with thins heads tuned very tightly. They are slightly quieter than traditional bongos but have more bottom end, especially on the lower pitched section. The main advantage of these is that they don't need tuning. These are a perfect replacement for my traditional bongos during the winter months when it is difficult to get enough tension in the heads.

Simple, beautiful sound
08.01.2016
I bought this instrument out of pure intrigue and nothing else. I had hoped it would be something that I could play around with and just have as something fun, which of course I have. But... the sound it produces is very, very beautiful. I am a percussionist but I do not admit to being a talented bongo player at all but this instrument is addictive to play, it is so warm and rich in tone and all it is is a few pieces of wood! I play this instrument in live settings with just an acoustic guitar and vocals and it works perfectly, I have recorded it as well and it sounds great. My only worries or negative comments about it would be its durability because the wood is quite soft and the 4 rubber feet have all fallen off. Other than that I must admit to being massively surprised at this instrument and it is one of my favourites in my whole percussion rig. A brilliant gift for any musician.

schöner Klang, solide Bauweise
Markus650, 23.10.2009
Schon beim Auspacken dieses Bongo Cajons fiel mir die gute Verarbeitung und die schöne Optik auf.

Das Holz fühlt sich ausgesprochen gut an und die Form lädt ohne Zögern sofort zum spielen ein. Der Sound klingt ausgesprochen trocken, hat aber eine sehr durchdringende Charakteristik! Betonte Akzente lassen sich mit diesem Instrument sehr gut heraus arbeiten. Mir fehlt leider ein wenig der Facettenreichtum im Klang.

Es lassen sich wohl einige Unterschiede machen, aber an ein "echtes" Bongo kommt dieses Instrument in dieser Hinsicht nicht heran! Wer eher farbenfrohe Sounds sucht sollte in eine Variante mit Snareteppich investieren!

Als reines Begleitinstrument und für gelegentliche Akzente ist dieses Instrument einfach gut!

La qualité Meinl a petit prix
Fab A., 01.07.2011
Caractéristiques:
Un instrument de type Bongo (1 sonorité Basse, 1 sonorité aigu) avec un design de type Cajon. Il trouvera sa place dans n'importe quel set de de percussions.
Le Bongo Cajon garde une sonorité propre et pourra s'associer a des bongos (au son plus sec), ou un cajon (au son plus grave et profond).

Qualité:
Trés bonne finition et un design tres soigné. L'instrument sonne juste a condition de travailler un peu son jeu ! Le vernis est de bonne qualité.

Mon opinion:
La prise en main est trés rapide. L'instrument ne nécessite pas forcément un talent particulier pour les percussions...
Toutefois, les joueurs experimentés lui trouveront beaucoup d'intéret. Le Bongo Cajon offre une grande palette de nuances et affiche un trés bon rapport qualité prix.
