A&F 6" OLD HAVANA TIMBALITO (BRASS BONGO) WITH INTERNAL SNARE
Timbalitos or Brass Bongos are small timbales with diameters of 6″, 8″, or 10″, used to play the part of the bongos with sticks. Papaíto and Manny Oquendo were masters at playing the bongó part on timbalitos. Timbalitos can be incorporated into expanded timbales set-ups, or drum kits.
Just like THE A&F raw brass snares, these Timbalitos are made from patented raw Brass shells, lugs, and hardware and come with new A&F custom straight edge Remo heads. Unlike Traditional Timbalitos, A&F also come with internal snare mechanisms, their new Brass Ring Hoops, and a L-arm bracket for mounting.
A&F hand cut, roll, weld, and sand their exclusive raw Brass shell and raw brass hoops, hand cut bearing edges, and treat Brass with an exclusive patina formula to jump start the ageing process. Then A&F add their patented raw brass center-mounted lugs, hardware, and finally Remo Ambassador heads.
