    I bought a Bongo 5er on Ebay and got it last Friday. This thing is some kind of powerful! Here's some pics.

    Thanks guys. As for the "toilet seat" look, it gives me comfort. :p Actually, the reason it took so long for me to get one is that I had to get used to the looks. You play one and they sound so good, but liking the way it looks kind of sneaks up on you.

    Hey Eddie, how you been doin'? One of these days I will make it out to one of your gigs.
     
  15. man, those toilet seats sound AMAZING!!!

    CONGRATULATIONS!!!

    Nice dude. Mine should be here within a week! :hyper:
     
  18. Nice score, Mobay. :cool:

    There's a Bongo identical to yours in the Guitar Center on 14th St. here in Manhattan. I think they want $1,319 for it. I get so tempted...
    I just have to control myself.

    I'm starting to like Bongos in basic black.

    Good luck with her.

    Mike ;)
