Manito's Latest Creation-His "Personal" Bongos

Postby Mr.Rumba » Thu Apr 25, 2013 3:32 am

Solid shell one piece bongos made from Spalted Red wood with Mule skin and Natural Steer. 6 3/4" and 8 3/4" heads. Zebra wood center block. I love the center block. He say's these are for him and he is keeping them! I still love mine, too!

looks like he gave them a sharper bearing edge. Looking very nice, and unique. I just had Manito make me a flesh hoop of very specific size and it was right on the button.
