Timbalitos or Brass Bongos are small timbales with diameters of 6â³($425), 8â³($525), or 10â³($625), used to play the part of the bongos with sticks. PapaÃto and Manny Oquendo were masters at playing the bongÃ³ part on timbalitos. Timbalitos can be incorporated into expanded timbales set-ups, or drum kits.
Just like all of our raw brass snares, our Timbalitos are made from our patented raw Brass shells, lugs, and hardware and come with our new custom straight edge Remo heads. Unike Traditional Timbalitos, ours also come with internal snare mechanisms, our new Brass Ring Hoops, and a L-arm bracket for mounting.
