5 different bongos played pt.2, with good mics!

Postby Mr.Rumba » Sat Apr 06, 2013 7:40 pm

This is my second video of 5 of my bongos (I just got the Mopercs last night from Gary, "Tootyful") played back to back and recorded directly into my Sony camera with ribbon mic's (made in China but they do the trick). This is a casual fun demo and is in no means any kind of "official" test. I was not able to tune them all the same as Sonocs and SITW will not go up any higher at this time and I do not want to pop the skins. The L.P.'s have Mule replacement heads I put on and got a while back from Manito on them. The Manito bongos have mule on the macho and steer on the hembre side.

The drums tested are Spirit In The Wood (Figured Ash one piece solid shell bongos with a floating hardware system), LP Giovanni, *(with Manito mule replacement heads), Sonocs from Cuba, Moperc Tropical Series and Manito walnut solid shell one piece bongos.

Thanks for your opinion Jaozinho, much appreciated! I just got the Moperc's last night and I am pretty excited about them as well :)

Next week I am going to have some vintage Cuban bongos and some pristine JCR's to use and test out so I will post the results here.
