About the Meinl MB400BU Radial Ply Construction Bongos in Bubinga

Meinl's new Radial Ply Construction was adopted from traditional drum-set shell building techniques. It uses several thin layers of wood being formed together to make a super strong shell that is lighter and more resonant. Add to that Meinl's patented Free Ride system that allows the bongos to be joined with no holes drilled in the shells and you have some serious bongo innovation.
