Happy Holidays!

Donkey Konga graphically represents whether you have DK Bongos or a GameCube controller attached, and varies its menu control scheme accordingly.

Given that DK Bongos and the GameCube controller both provide the same device ID (0x0900) to the console, does anyone have any idea how Donkey Konga "knows" DK Bongos are attached?

I'd like to build my own bongos, et cetera, but short of cannibalizing the control board from actual DK Bongos, I'm not sure how to persuade Donkey Konga it's corresponding with them.
