        Comments about Gon Bops Bongo Knee Pads:

        When you grip bongos your thighs squeeze the sides...and the rods (lugs) connecting the top rim to the bottom can hurt as you squeeze. These pads do NOT cover the rods, but sit on the shell of the drum makingt the bongos wider and awkward and harder to play.

        bad design

        Comments about Gon Bops Bongo Knee Pads:

        These make the bongo more comfortable to play, yes, but it is a shame that such a simple thing was designed so poorly: the velcro tapes are short, and one of them bends exposing the rough part out, meaning it may stick to your pants, or it would hurt your skin if you were to wear shorts.
        I didn't like these pads, but there is no similar product in the market. After using them for a while, i didn't want to go back to playing uncomfortably, so i had the inspired moment: if the hardware of your bongoes is hurting your legs, unscrew them, rotate them so the lugs are close to the center on the down side. Do the male first as much as possible and then the female. The weight of the bongos will be on your legs thru the wood, much more comfortable without needing pads, and the lugs will be on the inside part of your knees, not bothering. Yes, you will have to tune tune the bongos again.

        Happy drumming bongocero.

        Someone please design good pads! and make them fit for left handed players too!

            It works, it makes it much easier to hold the bongos between your legs.
