    I think bongos are made with a form of thin animal skin (leather) stretched across it. I don't think canvas will give you the same result (tone). Or maybe these days they use some new synthetic type of material. My father has some bongos and they definitely aren't canvas.

    Yeah it's some kind of leather that has been wet and stretched over the body, then allowed to dry, stretching it even more.
