Playing the Bongo basses this morning. I have Cobalt rounds on the 6 and regular Slinky's on the 5. I prefer the tone and the feel of the regular Slinky's.

Both basses sound great but there is a sweetness in the tone of the 5 with the Slinky's that really does it for me. There is, however, the ebony fingerboard on the 5 as opposed to the rosewood on the 6. I suppose that makes some contribution to the tone.

I have a house full off basses (yay) and the Bongo basses stand tall next to the basses made by other premier makers.

Should I PM Big Poppa?
