Gon Bops have been bringing out some very cool percussion gear, quickly demonstrating that they’re also a go-to when looking for a quality instrument. Players like Alex Acuna are playing Gon Bops exclusively now and maybe for some, this would be enough to entice them to have a look, but this latest offering should speak for itself. This time we have the Gon Bops Bongo Cajon. It is great, as I found out.
In case you were wondering, the Gon Bops Bongo Cajon is exactly that - a perfect combination of bongo and cajon. Think wooden box that you play suspended between your legs just like a set of bongos. There’s effectively two boxes/chambers but the instrument appears as one box with slightly angled sides for ergonomics.
Hits and Misses
Great sounds and playability
Polished surface can make it a little slippery to hold on to when playing hard
