1950's Olympic 'Drum Bongoes' 6" x 5" and 8" x 5" in original White Plastic wrap.

Catalog scans from 1958. 

These are a wonderful set of seldom seen Olympic bongos, or as written in the catalog, 'drum bongoes'. 

In the 1958 Olympic catalog they were listed as '6" and 8 x 5" deep. New and fascinating. Essential for Latin-American music now used in all types of rhythmic drumming. Professional size. Clamp to bass drum hoop or can be used as hand bongoes.'

Unbadged but has all Olympic hardware and skins, as well as clamp on bass drum hoop mount engraved Olympic Made in England. 

Chrome hardware is in great shape. Wrap shows a few signs of wear/scratches, note the slight crack in the wrap at the bottom (pictured), but overall, they are in great shape to say they are 60 years old! 

Freshly cleaned up and refitted with original heads which still have lots of life still in them.
