My 8 year old son comes up to me and says "I want some bongos for my birthday," which was fast approaching. Never purchased any percussion before, so I have no frame of referance. What I do know is since these things came in the mail, both me and my son have been pounding on them daily. They sound great, have a really nice finish, and fun! My buddy who has a set of bongos and congas, and who has played percussion for years, likes them as well, and stated I got a great deal. Overall very pleased.
This is the first set of bongos I've ever purchased, so I'm not sure what features to look for. Love the finish...
Seem to have pretty heavy duty hardware. Wood is heavy and thick. Heads responsive.
Seem much better than the bongos I pounded on at the local drum shop, and they where twice the money.

The bongo head is very thick and so it produces very blunt sound. One have to try too hard to produce quality sound. Might be Ok to start taking bongo lessons, but after a while may be a week or two into your lessons, this bongo won't produe the sounds that you would like it to.

    These bongos are great. Nice thick skin heads, heavy duty wood body, sound is what you want to hear!
    Cheapest set of real bongos out there, but they don't look like it. Can't go wrong.

      Comments about Toca Synergy Series Bongo Set:

      Bought this bongo set for my son. He's been taking Drum lessons from the local music store for almost 6 months and has recently begun turning everything in sight into hand drums. This set is one of his Christmas presents but I've been having some fun with them while he's in school. The bongos seem very well made. The individual wooden slats are we planed, fit together with no visible glue, and are not overly rough to the touch. The outside is well stained and the gloss finish is blemish free. The heads were good and tight upon arrival. No need to adjust just yet (with the included wrench). Loud and projecting without loosing tone as you slow down to quiet playing. I expect the boy will be very pleased.

        I bought these for a small child. They were much nicer than I expected. Can't go wrong for the price. They look expensive and sound pretty good. Although Iplay drums, I am not a bongo player. After seeing and playing these, I ordered some for myself.

          These were for my 7 yr old daughter, I play acoustic guitar for a living. She is able to accompany me exceptionally with these bongos. They have a great tone, can be tuned however you like them and have a comfort rim for less abuse on the fingers. These are the best starter set out there for the price! So glad we got them

                        These bongos were at a great price because they were an "open box" or return item, but they came quickly and were in mint condition! They have a nice rich sound and my kids are very excited about learning to play them. I will use them regularly as accompaniment for my large children's choir numbers.
