Comments about LPA601 Aspire Oak Bongos with Chrome Hardware:

You can beat the quality of these of these very reasonably priced bongos. I know they are intended for beginners, but I'm a seasoned drummer and I think any working pro would appreciate them.

    Comments about LPA601 Aspire Oak Bongos with Chrome Hardware:

    These LP Aspire Bongos have the most amazing clear sound from any LP set of bongos! They have the best clarity, projection, loud crisp slaps and more of what you want from your bongos to be. These bongos are professional quality, well made, and truly has lasted through many Bongo sessions! I have heard all the other brands of LP Bongos, but the LP Aspire had the sound I was looking for that no other set of bongos could do for me. If you are picky about sound quality, these are for you! They are amazing! I couldn't ask for a better set of high end bongos!

    Entry level

    By Gromit

    from Seattle, WA

    Comments about LPA601 Aspire Oak Bongos with Chrome Hardware:

    These are adequate entry-level bongos for kids. They are a bit smaller than regular bongos, so shorter players can more easily hold them between their legs. A bit bland in tone, these would not be useful for serious musicians.

          Comments about LPA601 Aspire Oak Bongos with Chrome Hardware:

          These are good bongos and can't be beat for the price (no pun intended). They do have pro features. The steel components are solidly chromed and definitely not junk. For those who play them between the knees, the bottom bands are not fixed so you can rotate them to keep the lugs from biting into your calves. As with the other products in the Aspire line, the heads vary from drum to drum. The skin on my hembra had a rough patch on the back, which made for some odd overtones but I sanded them a touch to even it out then rubbed in some palm oil. The head on my macho had a perfectly even surface. Overall, these are good bongos – and definitely not "kiddie" bongos as some comments might infer. Glad I bought 'em. Next on my list will be a padded carrying bag.

          Budget friendly, well made

          By JFairweather

          from Dallas

          About Me Professional Musician

          Comments about LPA601 Aspire Oak Bongos with Chrome Hardware:

          While some bongos may cost up to five times as much, the Aspire bongos offer far more bang for the buck than anything else in the LP catalogue. These are not "kiddie" bongos and they are not child-sized. In fact, the macho (smaller drum) is larger than the LP Giovanni Galaxy model. I'm very familiar with tone woods and with acoustic instruments such as guitars and mandolins there can be a huge difference. When comparing oak and ash for bongos, and the overall thickness of the shells, there is not enough wood involved to make much of a difference in tone. A connoisseur in a quiet room could tell. With fiberglass, you would definitely notice a difference. As for audiences, there is no way they could tell a difference, especially if a band is playing. As a caveat, I should say that I'm not a full-time percussionist and fill in on congas for specialty numbers, but for someone who is not a full-time hand drum guy, who doesn't make a living from playing the skins, the Aspire is an excellent choice.
