Crafted from Resonant Rubber Wood

The Meinl Headliner bongos are constructed from responsively tuned rubber wood, a dense, durable wood that produces warm, rich tones with long sustain. Its naturally oily pores help the wood resonate freely, allowing the bongos' full tonal potential to shine through. Tightly wound, rubber wood grain also provides a rigid shell that maintains roundness and prevents warping. These high-quality materials result in an instrument able to withstand the demands of regular play while delivering authentic bongo tone.

Stunning Bongos Made with Premium Craftsmanship

While the Headliner bongos prioritize sound, their colorful finish provides equally stunning visuals. The faded coloring adds an artistic touch, with the wood grain still visible beneath the translucent stain. This eye-catching design transforms the bongos into decorative accents that enhance any performance space. The finish is also water-resistant, protecting the wood during high-energy sets or in a humid environment.

Ergonomic Shape for Comfortable Play

The Meinl Headliner bongos feature an ergonomic shape designed for comfortable, intuitive play. Their medium 6.75" and 8" diameters suit a range of hand sizes, while providing ample volume without excessive bulk. Rounded edges prevent irritation even during extended practice sessions. Rubber feet prevent slippage and protect surfaces, allowing the bongos to be played in any position. The Headliner bongos were built with musicality and playability as a first priority.
