Matt Smith Mother of Pearl Bongo (3 of 3)

Final trio of photos. I will post a review of the sound once I play in the heads for a few months. However, they really do sing even at this early stage in their life.

Congratulations SKulmoski on a beautiful set of Bongos. That wood looks awesome. You no doubt have some keepers.

Congratulation Greg.
They are exquisite. The subtle use
of the pearl is also a nice tribute to the local
tradition of pearl diving that once
dominated in the Arabian Gulf (where you live)
before the era of the oil industry.

Use them in the best of health .
