Top quality has it's weight...

This is an LP high grade bongo, and you'll notice the first time you grab it.

My goodness, this is heavy. Like a good rock. No wonder LP has standards (also meant to sit in classic bongo playing position) for it, because you won't hold these onces between your legs long without getting the cramps.
(EDIT: That's the LP 330D stand, but it seems I bought the last one, and now Thomann doesn't have it in it's range anymore)

When you turn it around and look at the thick walls of the kettles, immediately you'll see iwhy it weights so much:Massive wood.

It looks beautiful too. The wrap is very strong. I was worried for that but this won't be scratched too easily on the road. It comes with a pouch with lug lube and a tuning wrench, as with little rubber caps to cover the bottom lug ends it stands upon.

Sound: the combination of quality wood and natural hand-picked hides guarantee it's deep and warm tone.
This combination is also the most sensitive to detune due to weather- and temperature fluctuations, but as even cheap bongo's can keep a tuning after hours of playing, I don't worry about this one.

I'll use this in acoustic set ups, low tuned and it almost sounds like a conga that way.
If you want the deeper tones, be sure you take this size.

Bongolicious...
29.12.2015
Bought these in memory of Raul who sadly died on 02/11/15. One of the very greatest percussionists. Missed by many. These are superb drums. They sound sweet with minimal overtones and really crisp pops and slaps. They look absolutely amazing. These are my ultimate bongos.
To clarify their construction - they are 3 ply laminated rubberwood rather than stave construction. The finish is very smooth, hard and sleek with gold specks dotted all over the tiger stripes. Made me go 'WOW' and I have dozens of drums and 30 years semi-pro playing...enough said
