    Bongo video with description and explanation from BP

    My Bongo fever is high.

    There used to be a video linked in the sticky's that had BP explaining the different Musicman basses, and the Bongo one was great!

    Is this set of videos still available?

    Slowly but surely, I can see a Bongo in my sights.

    Thanks

    You should buy one, they are great and feel/look/sound unique, but with very clear MusicMan DNA running through.

    You could see if one of the shops has one (even used) and try it out. From memory, Bass Gallery and Bass Merchant have them listed as stock - worth a trip and you could do a bit of bass guitar/amp tourism as well! Bass Merchant have a rather nice SR5H 2005 LE in buttercreme also (new I think!).

    We don't choose Bongos.

    Bongos seek us out and stalk us until we succumb. The Bongoloids are simply the messengers.

    One day someone will put a large seed pod on your front porch and the next morning, you will be One of Us.

    that is something from guitar center videos.. i clearly remember him doing harmonics from 7th to 2nd band..

    and i agree.. the harmonics response in the bongo is awesome. its alive and vibrant in another way than the sr4

    flats for the bongo!
    roundwounds for the fretless!

    trussrod adjustment:
    Click here for an image!
    less relief / flatter = lower action
    more relief / bow = higher action
    do NOT use cheap tools to adjust with. they break and scrape up your bass!

    if you have a 100th namm sr4: the truss works the other way around on those!

    i have no affiliation with eb other than i love their basses
