What stands up to the bongo?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by MCBTunes, Jan 21, 2005.

  1. Seriously, in the price range or below(1100), what is on the same level as the bongo? I thought Lakland, but they dont have the cutting tone, P bass delux maybe? I dont think so...

    So, what kind of direct competition does the Bongo have?
  2. Peavey Cirrus. Ibanez BTB1000. Carvin LB70P. G&L Tribute. They're at least worthy of a look.

    G&L for sure. For $1100 you should also look at used Roscoe's Musicman, Ken Smith, Matt Pulcinella. There are probably some older nice sounding Fenders out there. MTD, there's a lot to look through for 1100. Good Luck!
