Pretty well made for the price..... The first set I ordered had a split where the two sides are connected.... Not a problem - it was easily return back to Musician Friend with the return mailing process- it worked well.... The second set came in no problem. They do a good job taking care of their customers.

The bongos are what I expected for the price level and offer a fun way to add a little percussion with a guitar player.

I got these bongos for knock-arounds - small and lightweight as compared to my LP GenII's. The sound is pretty okay for little drums (nothing like my full-size Generation II's, which are fantastic bongos!), but there are two big disappointments - (1) the "traditional" rim rather than a "comfort curve" style. The traditional flat rims can be hard on the hands. I sure wish these had a curved rim like the LP Aspire's. (2) the lug hardware is undersized and the lugs strip easily. These bongos defintiely need heavier-duty hardware. That's the really big minus. If I had it to do over again, I would not buy these bongos.

        Comments about CP221 Tunable Bongos with Bag:

        I'm not a bongo 'player', I just got the to have at home for recordings, and I saw that most models had the tuning bars so I didn't give it much thought, but they really are a problem. I'd suggest looking at some Youtube instructions to see how to properly hold them. I guess sound would be a lot better in the hands of a professional.

          I am a professional part time musician and sometimes need a set of bongos. These are great bongos for the price. I hope they hold up for quite a while. For under three sawbucks on sale and free shipping, how can you go wrong!

              These are exactly as advertised: Wood BONGOS!!

              They are the best BONGOS that I own. They are also the only BONGOS that I own! They sound as good expect, like bongos. If you want bongos, I recommend these. They come with a nice sack to tote your bongos around with, too.
