    Comments about LP793X Giovanni Galaxy Series Bongos:

    A couple of years ago I purchased a set of used Meinl Free Ride Woodcraft bongos from Musicians Friend. They were classified as level 1 mint condition. They were in absolutely beautiful, like new, mint condition as described. They have a 7in macho and 9in hembra head and are magnificent in both appearance and sound. And the price was great. I just purchased the LP793X Giovanni Galaxy bongos from Musicians Friend, also used and in level 1 mint condition at a very good price. And as described, they were in absolutely new condition. They have a magnificent appearance, beautiful construction and great sound and playability. They have a 7 1/4in. macho and a 8 5/8in. hembra head. So its macho is slighly larger than the Meinl's and its hembra is slightly smaller than the Meinl's. They are equally beautiful, equally well constructed and both sound and play beautifully. My biggest problem is deciding which bongos to play. I think the Meinls give a slightly warmer sound and the LPs provide a little more penetration. BTW, I play these a lot, outdoors in Washington Square Park in NYC where we get many good musicians coming down for outdoor jam sessions.Both bongos sound great handling many different types of musical genres. You can not go wrong with either pair and I wouldn't hesitate to continue to deal with Musicians Friend.com. Good prices, good service and fast delivery.

    These bongos are the best!

    Comments about LP793X Giovanni Galaxy Series Bongos:

    I have been playing these bongos hard for many years now and they have a great sound and the best construction I have ever seen. You can drop them on the floor and it wont even effect the drum. I have mine mounted on a stand, but they do have optional rubber feet that come with them. The only down side I have found is that they are very heavy in weight and are not very comfortable in your lap. They also are expensive but well worth it...

    Ultimate Bongos!

    By Buck72

    from Cabot, AR

    Comments about LP793X Giovanni Galaxy Series Bongos:

    I have sampled many LP bongos; Aspire, Performer, and the Giovanni Galaxy's - these are the best-sounding, and most attractive of them all. If you are looking for a quality instrument, this is it.
