Bongos are one of the most recognizable Latin drums in both their appearance and how they sound. Originating in Cuba during the mid-1800s, bongos can now be heard everywhere from Mardis Gras festival parades to beatnik-style poetry nights. Of course, the bongo drum is a lot easier to play when it's positioned on a sturdy, well-made stand. With that in mind, many of today's top drum hardware manufacturers specialize in their own bongo stands, so you'll have no problem finding one that allows you to hone your craft in style and comfort. One of the best things about bongo drums is that you don't have to be a pro to enjoy playing them. In fact, bongo drums have long been considered to be an instrument of improvisation, and as any experienced percussionist will tell you, nothing provides musical freedom like a high-quality stand.
So which bongo stand is right for you? That will depend on your own specific needs and preferences. For example, maybe you want to make a new addition to your drum set... in which case, check out the best-selling Toca seated stand. Fully adjustable, this stand allows you to play bongos while sitting down, but without having to hold them between your legs. Plus, this stable stand fits all bongo drums, and it even has double-braced legs for extra stability. Now if it's a mounting arm for your bongos that you're after, then check out the Meinl Bongo Mount. Specially designed for Meinl's conga double stands, this mount also allows you to adjust the angle of your bongo for hitting that ideal sweet spot with no restrictions. And these are only two of the many bongo stand choices available in this catalog, so be sure to explore the other items as well. Remember, when you have a talent like playing a musical instrument, the only thing on your mind during a performance should be the music at hand, and any one of the bongo stands in this section will certainly give you that peace of mind.
