I've had a set of LP Matador bongos forever, they sound good and play fairly easily. About $180 US.

Yeah, I'm sure those are nice. I don't think LP had started making those rims when I got my Matador, around '89-90. Or if they did, I didn't have the extra 100 bones as a college kid.

I got a pair at Lidl once. Seriously. £20 tops and they even came with an instructional DVD.

Headliner (Meinl brand) - £50-100 for something decent. The Clash used them on London Calling; I have them now.

That's a deal. New heads will cost you more than $25.
