This new line of congas feature a traditional look with modern innovation that only Pearl can deliver. Each 28" tall Oak conga is designed for the seated player, but is pre-drilled for stand mounts if necessary. Thicker South American style natural skins makes the drums warm sounding, but a fiberglass gel coat on the interior seals the shell and adds the projection and volume desired by today's players. Four Polished Steel Reinforced Bands are inset on the shell for a smooth touch, and the traditional hoops complete these stunning instruments in a Matte Crimson Sunrise finish. The 7" & 8 1/2" Oak bongos have the same hardware and shell features of the congas. The thicker bongo skins add to the projection and "dry" tone reminiscent of that classic Cuban sound.

  • Great sounding bongo!
  • January 12, 2014

I've been eying these bongo for awhile and finally decided to purchase a pair. When I tune them up right out the box, these bongo sound great! The macho (small drum head) pop and most importantly the hembra (large drum head) have a solid tone without any ring. Pearl Folkloric Bongo are well constructed with precision fitting hardware. The bongo hardware is well made with an attractive lacquered brushed metal finish. I should add the nuts are 5/8 inch in length for preventing thread damage. There are two washers on the tension rods or hooks, the inner washer is a spacer keeping the tension rod in place then there's the outer washer. A lot of Pearl Percussion bongo in my opinion, have too much space between the small and large drums. The Pearl Folkloric Bongo spacing between the two drum heads are close together making for more comfortable playing area and easier to hold between a player's legs. I have no problem with the weigh of these drums even though there's a little heft to the drums. The one thing I did notice and have a little problem with is the crimson color finish is not as bright as the product promo image. I have a collection of bongos and the Pearl Percussion Folkloric Bongo stand out for their good solid construction and good solid sound. Yes, I would definitely recommend the Pearl Percussion Folkloric Bongo.
