The Kids Percussion Bongo comes pre-tuned with our popular Fiberskyn 3 drumhead. The bongos are an important part of the Afro-Cuban family of rhythm instruments. A set of bongos consists of two drums of differing diameters. The smaller one has a 5-inch diameter, producing a higher pitch, and the larger one has a 6-inch diameter, producing a lower pitch. The set is 7 inches high and 12 inches long. It is normally held between the player's knees so the bottoms of the drums don't touch the floor. You can play endless patterns of rhythms using your fingertips. Alternate between the small and large drum and between the rim and center of the heads. This drum set features an ACOSTICON ™ shell, making it easy to clean and enabling years of durable play. Suitable for kids from age 3 up.
