Bongo Drums can range from 6 inches to 12, but most are probably around 8 and 9 inches.

There are 2 drums that are attached to each other that make up bongos, a male and female drum, the male would be the 9 inch and the female would be the 8 inch.

The size difference bears no importance as far as one being better than the other. The exact opposite is true because both are as important as the other, and together make that great Bongo Drum sound.
