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.
Ich bin kein Bongo-Experte... kann aber sagen, dass diese Bongos bestens verarbeitet und lackiert sind. Zudem sehen sie prima aus und vor allem: sie klingen hervorragend!
Ich habe sie mit einem Beyerdynamic MC-930 Stereo Set aufgenommen und bin absolut begeistert: sie klingen in meinen Ohren oberamtlich und können sich auf Anhieb im Mix durchsetzen - auch ohne große Nachbearbeitung. Superklasse!
Aber ACHTUNG: in meinem Fall passte der Meinl-Ständer "THBS" nicht! Ich weiß nicht, ob das generell so ist, oder ob mein Exemplar ungenau verarbeitet war - jedenfalls passten die Bongos nicht richtig in den Schnellverschluss. Der Meinlständer "TMB" passt aber.
