    I've had a set of LP bongo's sitting around in the cupboard for a few years now, used to play them on the regular, y'know, just sitting there jamming away to whatever I had playing on the stereo at the time. Got fairly good at them too. But havnt had a jam on them for a few years now and I'm very rusty. Got them out last night, gave them a tune up, and think I'm gonna start playing again.

    Anyway, had a quick look on youtube for some inspiration and came across this guy.......WOW!!!!



    Thinking about recording some sounds and riffs from my own set of bongo's and incorporating them into a track

    sure, i have a bongo grits bought for me in kerala, i usually record some hits or some phrases for my songs, i also have drumsticks which makes it even more interesting.
    grits has a small darbuka that we stuck a mic up from under, through a pink behringer pedal and then a TC compressor and got sik neuro bass
