My wife is a fan of latin music and played in a latin band that has now broken up. She wanted to get some latin percussion so she can still create some of those great sounds. This agogo was one of the items we selected. It plays pretty well and it is LOUD!
This is a sturdy product that sounded the best in the preview sound samples. And true to that, it does sound great. The pitches of the two bells were the nicest to my ears. Nice mix between pitch and dull -thunk-. James Murphy would approve.
