Bongos are easy to play hand percussion drums and are in pairs. A pair of bongos comprises two bongos of different sizes. One smaller bongo and one larger bongo. Each bongo is tuned differently and the sound of bongos can be heard in a huge variety of music recording from latin percussion music to rock and from pop to classical. Bongos are a cheap, small and completely acoustic instrument that can be played by anyone from children to adults and from beginners to professional percussionists.
