Not the sound

Comments:

This Bombo, while looking nice and manufactured with seemingly good quality (though not the real wood used in - say - Argentina), unfortunately does not convince sonically. None of the trademark dark yet sustained (!) "boom", as the actual instrument would have (I own several). What arrived sounded slightly fuller than the cardboard box it shipped in, even after letting it get acclimated to room temperature and experimenting with tuning ranges. No idea why, heads look ok but maybe its a mounting or thickness issue, or the plywood shell just can't create the resonance needed.

Wonderful Instrument!

Comments:

Absolutely love this drum! It's tones are rich, deep and resonant. I use the felt mallets that came with it, but I also use a pair of Promark 5Bs and honestly couldn't be more pleased. Since receiving it, I've played it more than any of my hand drums. Looking to take it to its first event this weekend.

Fantastic!

Comments:

I have been looking for a good Bombo for years and I even considered making one, when I saw this one I decided to give it a try because of the good reviews and also because looks really good on the photo. Shipping was incredibly fast, the price unbeatable but the most important thing the sound is incredible. I record Andean music from South America and this one will be the tool that I was missing for so long. Extremely happy with my purchase. The size is perfect, if you want a deeper sound you have to go for something bigger; this one is just Perfect!

Great bombo criollo!

Comments:

Arrived very quickly. The bombo is made of high quality wood and goat skin. Both looks and sounds great, nice rich tone and ideal projection. Tunes up quick and easy. This bombo even got compliments from Bolivian and Peruvian friends during practice and jam sessions. A real winner in every sense of the word. Even came with the proper mallets. Highly recommended

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.
