Pearl Fiberglass Bongos

Comments:

I bought these to have something that was unaffected by heat and humidity. I have some other top of the line LP wood ones with "hand picked" heads that are. These Pearl fiberglass ones are quite loud and have very responsive synthetic heads. You can get very sharp slaps and other clear and distinctly different sounds. I have some Remo festival plastic tube bongos that I bought for the same purpose but the macho drum is a little too small for thumb and finger technique with the same hand. The Pearl ones are standard size and the synthetic heads fit my LP bongos perfectly. Synthetic heads can be ringy. In my experience the bigger they are the more that is a problem like with congas and djembes. In that regard the hembra head is a little ringy with but only with an open tone no matter how I tune it. It still had a little ring even when I switched it over to the LPs so it is not the shell. I fixed that with a quarter inch square piece of Moon Gel and thin strip of electrical mastic tape on the outside edge (thick tape available at the Home improvement store). That was necessary on the hembra only. Fiberglass could be made to be quite light but these are not but a light lay up. I have them on a stand. In comparison the remo festival plastic tube bongos are super light and comfortable with no lugs. Too bad they are too small. Anyway the Pearl Fiberglass bongos sound great with just a little modification to the large head.
