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:

            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.

                  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.
