    I’m a musician of over 17 years, mostly of guitars and similiar instruments. I was interested in playing bongos and did some research on the internet, which lead me to these beauties! They arrived in pristine condition and I just had to tune them up a bit. They sound great and being ABS plastic, they are very durable and can take a beating! For this price they are a great deal. I had some Toca fiberglass bongos I bought in 99′ I think for 80 dollars, I think these sound just as good and they seem a little more durable as well! Great buy!

    If I was comparing these to wood bongos, I’d knock off one star. You’re not going to get the same warm tone with these as you’d get with wood, but you will get a sound that can cut through a jam session. I got them mainly for my infant and his light tapping produces a louder sound than he’d get with wood bongos. I’m very happy with the quality of the build and heads. And I know these will take abuse much better than wood.
