Bongo <bongo>, a percussion instrument from Cuba, is often referred to as "Cuban drum". According to its transliteration, it is also called Bongo drum. Mainly used in Latin American music, usually in pairs, bongo drums are popular in Latin America and introduced to China in the early 21st century.


Because of its small size and easy portability, we can often find it in some small-scale bands or orchestras. Because of its transparent tone and strong penetrating power, bongo drums are also widely used in some non-pluggable drums. Electric/light music/clean soundstage.

The timbre is high-pitched and bright, and the bongo drum also plays an important role in "dyeing" and "colorful" in music. It not only enriches the level of music, but also makes the rhythm more three-dimensional.

Because the drumhead is relatively narrow, it is more suitable for interpreting its sound with the fingers, and of course it can also be a companion to any instrument.

The drum beats come and go, making people stop to listen and soothe the troubled souls one after another.

Gecko Bongo

The multifunctional octagonal flat drum breaks through the shackles that traditional bongo drums must be installed in pairs.


Traditional bongo drums must be composed of two small single-sided drums of different sizes in order to play a high-pitched bongo and a low-pitched bongo, the bass drum can play the bass, and the snare drum can play the high voice.

Although the size is greatly reduced, this kind of conjoined drum still affects the convenience and experience of users.

This is undoubtedly a huge breakthrough for bongo drums, both in terms of performance and appearance, it is a leaping innovation.


Traditional bongo drums do not have high requirements on the drum body, only the drum surface is required to be made of animal skin. Although the animal skin drum surface has a pure and thick sound quality, it cannot be used for a long time and is not easy to preserve. Of course, animal leather drum heads are not in
line with the environmental protection advocated by the state.

Multifunctional octagonal flat drum, the whole drum body is made of birch with high flexibility, and the beat surface is made of croton wood & black wood & tiger maple wood, the sound is transparent, and the service life of the drum is greatly increased.
