What the Pro’s played in the 70’s!

Bongoceros! This is what everyone played in the Salsa and Guaguanco scene in the 70’s. I’ve owned this LP Bongo Cowbel for over 35yrs now. Got it from a guy who got frustrated with it because he couldn’t get it mounted in his Timbales. So during a gig he one year he tells me “La quieres” and of course I said “Yes” lol. True old school sound on this bell. The Bongos I got from a Guy in LA who thought it was a good idea to engrave his name and what it looks to be his SS# on the rims. What a dope! The guy didn’t even know what he had. These are late 60’s or early 70’s Palisades Park with Cuban bottoms and made out of Dark Walnut. Super light.

I tell you, you just never know when you’re going to stumble upon a treasure.

Juaort.

LOL! Thank you.

I tell you, that Cencerro will give you a work out boy! I think it weighs more than the bongos.
