Comments about Ernie Ball Music Man Bongo 5 HS Piezo Bass:

I bought this bass about a year ago never playing a bongo before. WOW! this thing is such a tone monster it is ridiculous. I use it for Reggae Rock, Prog Metal, Blues, Funk, Latin and it fits in the mix perfectly. I love how easy it is to play and the piezo bridge really helps by adding bite, clarity and harmonics. It can be set up for however you play effortlessly. I love it
