Hand crafted by master craftsmen, the Elite Series utilizes the finest materials and techniques that have been handed down for generations.
Pearl's Elite Series Bongos are available in your choice of 100% Thai Oak, or hand layer, seamless fiberglass shells with an over-sized Hembra for maximum bass response.
All Elite bongos feature Pearl's Contour Crown rims that offer a radical sloping edge that practically disappears under your hands for a level of comfort you have to experience to believe.
Tremendous pressure is applied to bongo heads and Pearl's exclusive Self-Aligning Washer System (S.A.W.S.) isolates the tension hooks from the inner walls of the lugs making Elite bongos easier to tune.
Both wood and fiberglass shells are completed with premium lacquer finishes that look as good as they sound.
