When it comes to "Bongos" the charm is in having two drums with different tones (one high, one low) connected together into one unit. With Crossroads Bongos there is great variation with style and size. All are made with the ring/rope method of securing and tuning the skin. Each pair are detachable using a wrench on the 1/4" nuts from underneath to release the bolts, separating the drums for any needed maintenance or tuning.
