For christmas I wanted to get my friend some bongos or something. Something that's easy to pick up and play for a few min while commercials are on, like what we can do with a guitar. Also something so we can jam out together acoustic style.
I don't know anything about the subject. So enlighten me. What exactly should I be looking for? What's a decent brand that I can grab on ebay for 40 bucks?

If you can stretch or find a cheap one, cajons, or drum boxes are awesome. Different sounds by hitting places on the box which you sit on. They retail for about £100 in UK.

Looks interesting, but a bit out of my price range. I'll mention it to him, he may want to buy one for himself.
