Good product for price. Would recommend to anyone who wants to leisurely play the bongos. Not professional level but very well made for amatuers

Maybe my item was defective, but larger drum didn't sound right, from get go. After 5 days bongos were on the table no one touching them, I hear this sound, and the skin just tore/ ripped apart. Reviews were good, so I will give this product another chance

I bought this bongo about 5 weeks ago in samedaymusic.com for $44.00 in dark wood color. It haved a very good quality overall, the rawhide head feels good on your hand and on the martillo rythm,etccccccc!

I bought these for my 15-year-old son for Christmas.. he loves them and has played them quite frequently.. they sound wondeful and play with a nice rich sound to them.

My only issue is i now have to replace the head on one of the drums as it has torn. I don't know how they got torn, so I can't necessarily say it's the product. But being that the heads themselves cost almost as much as the drums, i will be buying him this same exact set again (which should tell you that despite that, I am very satisfied with the product). My only advice, if you buy this for your teenager, is to make sure they store them in the bag that comes with it and have a designated place to put them, because they do appear to be a bit on the fragile side, head wise.. as it appears most will be.

I have never played bongos before; this is our first set. They were purchased for hobby use.

I was hesitant to buy them after reading some of the "low-star" reviews, but decided that I was tired of waiting for the "perfect" set and just bought these. I'm glad I did. They sound great! We tuned and oiled them with almond oil (as is recommended by some professional players) when they arrived. They have a very nice sound and are loud enough to sound through the guitars, ukuleles, and other instruments in our home.

We have had them for 1 week and we really like them. I would recommend these.

I love this product. It's very handy. I've even practiced in my car, carrying it around in the bag it comes with. I was happy that it came with a small wrench to tune it.

Love it, great quality for the price and appears it will last a long long time, rugged construction, built tough.

I'm a newbie and I bought it to learn, but I could immediately tell that the rough finish and soft spots on the heads was not good. Well the hide pop a hole two moths later (on that soft spot).
The tuning screws did not seem to match the nuts shipped and to make it worse, the metal used is quite soft. Bottom line, if you plan to tune them you would easily damage the screws and nuts.
I tried buying the new parts to get them to a good condition, but it was more expensive than buying a new set of decent bongo.
Disappointing!

Arrived 3 days after I ordered it, the bent welding should've clued me to what would happen. 2nd time I tuned it the inferior quality tension bolts started stripping, making the macho (small drum) useless. Mostly good materials (oak, steel, rawhide) + terrible craftmanship = drum being returned. Lay down another $30 and get some Aspires, I've gotten 2 sets of those (1 for me, 1 as a gift) and they won't let you down, or you might want to check out similarly priced bongos from Meinl, Gon Bops or Tycoon, but avoid this hunk a junk.

I am not a percussionist. I am a guitarist & vocalist. I was looking for something to use at open mic sessions to accompany my friends while they were playing their sets. I ended up getting a refund. My friend had this cheap little single bongo/djembe thing that sounded awesome ! I will be purchasing a small djembe in the future. Word of advice: if you are looking for a distinctive percussive sound, go to a music store and try out several different items until you find the sound you are looking for.
