The perfect set of bongos

29.02.2016
Amazing quality construction and excellent sound.

I play Afro Cuban, Latin Jazz, funk, and folkloric, these bongos work brilliantly for all styles.

Most importantly, sound quality - excellent! Cutting slaps, and lovely open tones and bass response (as far as it goes with a bongo).

The components and finish are exceptional.

My only criticism is that it's not possible to change the angle at which the lugs meet the head, this means if playing in a traditional between the legs way, you can have the lug pushed against your leg in an uncomfortable way. Also the bongos are quite heavy so might suit a stand better, however I still manage to play in a traditional seated way without too much trouble.

Overall, excellent and would buy again.
