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 bought these to be something for my kids to play while I play guitar. The wood is nice and sturdy, and the bongos play easily. The bag however is literally a potato sack with a string and printed logo. It's as if "CP" found the cheapest bag in the world just so they could say "with bag!" I think less of the company for this gimmick.

    Comments about CP221 Tunable Bongos with Bag:

    If I'd know I would be receiving a toy I would have spent the extra $40.00 and bought a set with decent heads. the Heads I have to spend money on is what I would have spent.
    Looks better than they sound
    the heads sound terrible..
    overpriced

                Comments about CP221 Tunable Bongos with Bag:

                Got these bongos for my 26 month old toddler, and he had broken the big membrane on the big bongo within about 20 seconds of getting them out of the bag. Oh well. He broke the membrane on the cheap toddler set of drums a couple of weeks earlier, and so I got him the real McCoy after making a duct tape membrane over his toddler set didn't have quite the right sound...so, the fact that my toddler is an experience bongo destroyer is somewhat extenuating, but the fact remains that my 2 year old child broke with his bare hands the membrane on an adult bongo membrane is nothing less that pathetic.

                      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.
