String Bongos

The String Bongos combine elements from two different instrument families, the string family and the percussion family.

The String Bongos are built from a large PVC piping joint, some plastic coating used for a drum head and some metal guitar strings attached with metal fasteners.

By striking your hand on the drum part of the instrument you get a unique medium pitched sound resembling a bongo.

By plucking or strumming the various sized string on the top of the instrument with a guitar pick you get a sound resembling a guitar. A creative combination of instruments that is fun to play!
