This item was a gift for a budding musician. It is well made and you can feel the smooth wooden material as you beat this percussion. it gives a pleasant sound, not some cheaply made out of tune instrument. It is NOT a toy. It is a quality music instrument for the price cheaper than a toy. Toddler loves their gift so much that and we are deciding to purchase one for ourselves.

Nice controlled sound. No under/overtones. I thought they would be too thin when I ordered them, but they are a comfortable size and sound great. Meinl Percussion has always exceeded my expectations. I have been in contact with master percussionist Luis Conte (Currently touring with James Taylor) and he recommended these. He also has a signature Meinl conga set which he also recommended.

Great Sound . . . .
By Amazon Customer
Purchased these to round out my percussion instruments that include mainly hand drums, i.e. Djembe, Cajon, Bongos, Talking Drum, Doumbek. They produce a perfect pitch that cuts through the sounds of the other instruments. Many band and drum corps drum instructor use drum stick to "clack" the tempo; these would be better for that than a pair of drum sticks. Great buy for the price and they look great too.
