Great Cajon

I purchased the Meinl cajon with the Makah-Burl frontplate. I was impressed by the looks and the sound of it out of the box. The bass sounds great. The construction feels solid and I love the ability to adjust the strings. I am very happy with my purchase. Sweetwater provided excellent customer service.

Mein Cajon

I purchased this Meinl Cajon from Brendan Murphy at Sweetwater and as usual Brendan delivered with his expertise advice. This Cajon has an awesome Makah Burl front plate and has great kick drum sound...Again Sweetwater had it at my door in 2 days...THANKS SWEETWATER and MEINL

Great for the money

I bought this for an acoustic series we are doing at the church I work for. After watching some videos and speaking with my rep at sweetwater I settled on this one. I am no cajon expert but it seems well made and sounds great.

Solid Choice for intermediate Cajon

This cajon has adjustable tension on the wires and top corner screw adjustments on the front panel. The body is well built and has large rubber feet that allow you to swing back easily. With a few adjustments, the range of sounds should satisfy everyone on an intermediate level of play. The cushioning on the top makes it comfortable to play, as well. I like the bass response a lot right out of the box and have been enjoying the variety of timbre available, although the range of sounds tends to the lower range of sounds. It takes some work to get a good high frequency slap. Also, I like the front wood design, but the sides and back are rather plain. To get prettier wood, you would have to pay more.The difference between a "beginner" cajon and this is substantial, nonetheless, and I would highly recommend this as a beginner level instrument. As always, Sweetwater shipped quickly and had an accurate and useful description of the instrument.
