    Purple Bongo?

    I don't recall there ever being a purple Bongo. Has there been? Is purple the new green? Is it time for a purple Bongo?

    I know. I recently got my PDN Bongo and I wish I had ordered two.

    I got a lined fretless 5H. Now, I would also like a fretted 5H. The PDN's are so nice but that's not an option.

    It's usually a bass player thing but we have let a drummer or two attend. One or two guitarists have attended in the past. If you don't mind lots of guys thumping and playing loud (I usually have to go outside or another room) then you're welcome to attend.

    The Bongo is built for outrageous colors, isn't it?

    How about a purple-flake Bongo with gold hardware. Pimp Daddy Bongo, anyone?

    I don't think purple is outrageous, but I do think it would look good on a Bongo.

    No, gold hardware!!
