Shaped like a bongo, but looks like a cajon. It’s the new X8 Bongo Cajon! This instrument can be played in the traditional bongo position, either between your legs or on a stand. Enjoy the new sound created when you play your bongo rhythms on this drum. The dry, tight tone is great for acoustic gigs or mic it up and add interesting sounds to your recordings. Notice the flat sides of the drums, these are designed to fit snug between your legs.
The drums have an Hembra and a Macho head that produce different pitches. The drum is beautifully crafted and is lightweight, making it great for travel,

I've been playing traditional bongos for about ten years and lately I've been wanting to experiment with some new sounds. At $79.. I thought why not. These sound really great and the price is very reasonable for what you get. The tone is very cool and at the end of the day was well worth the investment. Five stars for price, instrument and speedy delivery. Way to go X8!
