I love my Bombo

Comments:

This Bombo and the mallets are exactly what they were promised to be. A wonderful drum at a great price. They arrived in a timely manner with good updates on the shipment progress. Shopping at Steve Weiss has been a pleasant reliable experience.

Nice sounding drum, but beware of the construction

Comments:

In terms of sound and price, I would give this a 5 all the way. But the build quality isn't the greatest (hence the low price). The first one that was sent to me was damaged in transit, and this was due to the way the shell is constructed. It's a ply shell, but the plys are put in the shell in a staggered fashion, so there are varying amounts of overlap and thickness at different points in the shell. The damaged shell was very thin at the point it had a couple of holes knocked through it. I've never seen a shell constructed that way. On the plus side, Weiss was very responsive when I called them and immediately took care of the problem, shipping a new drum out very quickly. So, if you can get a shell that hasn't been weakened or damaged, I'd say go for it, it has the typical bombo sound that you may be looking for, and it's a great value.

Great Drum!

Comments:

I have this hobby which turned into my main passion in life to collect and play percussion instruments made from every part of the world. Unfortunately my bank account can only provide so much. That being said, I searched every corner online to find a Bombo criollo at a price point I could afford and was giving up after awhile. But I remembered about Steve Weiss Music and instantly shopped around and look at here! A bombo at an incredible price! This drum is part of their Liberty I brand which supplies gear at a budget friendly price, but don't let "budget" fool you, this drum looks, feels, and most importantly sounds incredible! This is a quality, unique drum to have in the room. I can't wait to get this drum recorded in my next session. Hopefully soon I will make a cradle to hold this drum both upright to play with mallets and horizontal to accommodate a pedal. Love it! Thank you guys for making my day!
