The Meinl FFB400 Free Ride Fiberglass Bongos convince with a stunning sound reaching from powerful mids to sharp highs. Thanks to their fiberglass shells they are extremely durable and the perfect instrument for the working musician on the road.

The Meinl FFB400CA Fibercraft Designer Series Bongos utilizes the Meinl famous Free Ride system to hold the 7" Macho and the 8 1/2" Hembra securely together while allowing for total resonance. The shell walls a specially shaped for maximum projection, resonance and stability. These are important facts because they mean your bongos will sound their absolute best.

Comes with hand selected true skin cowhide heads secured with the SSR Safe and Sound Rim. The hardware is strong and chrome plated. Rubber caps at the bottom of the tuning lugs prevent scratches and other damage.

  1. Bongos

    Posted by Gonzalo Navarrete on 30th Jul 2014

    Great sound, well built!, stunning color-black sparkle is the one I got. Easy to tune like a any others bongos. Those are my first fiberglass bongos so is hard to compare and describe the sound betwen a wood bongo and a fiberglass bongo. But sounds a bit crispy. Cool bongos to play anywhere.

    Los bongos suenan muy bien y son de muy buena calidad tomando encuenta que son de fibra de vidrio. El color negro luce fantastico! (es el color que tengo). Son muy facil de afinar y viene con una herramienta para esto. El sonido es un poco diferente a los bongos tradicionales de madera, pero esto depende tambien de que tanto tenses los cueros. Por el material de los bongos se pueden llevar a todas partes sin tanto temor a que se maltraten como los de madera.
