        Comments about Meinl Free Ride Series Collection Wood Bongos:

        I am an LP Conga and Bongo player since i was 10 i'm now 50 years old, But this Meinl bongo blow my mind away. Compare with LP Giovanni bongos, these Meinl has more volume, very responsive, and due to the wood shape are more comfortable to hold between legs without any fatigue. The best bongo i ever had without any doubt. The only con its you can't use standard stand due to the free ride piece between the drums, you need the Meinl stand for them.
