Toca Synergy Bongos offer exceptionally expressive sound and feel. The bongos feature 2-ply select wood shells, black powder-coated hoops and lugs, and natural rawhide heads. This Toca Bongo Set has an Afro-Cuban design and sound, with strong bass tones. The bongos' EasyPlay hoops protect hands, and enhance the sound of the drums. The bongos stand up to high tuning ranges, due to their 4-bolt tension plates that spread the tension over the shell.
