How the Bongos are Played: Bongo drums produce high-pitched sounds, and should be held between the knees. They are traditionally played by striking the drumheads with the fingers and palms, although some contemporary compositions require sticks or brushes. These drums can also be played on a stand, as is the case with concert orchestras and bands.
