Percussion persuasion

First of all, I am not a percussionist or drummer. I play guitar. However, I was part of a drumming circle a few years ago and own a djembe and several Native American drums. I received an e-mail from Sweetwater with a link to a demo of various LP drums. I almost dismissed it, but the fact that the LP Americana line was made in USA appealed to me. Then I saw the demo videos. I realised the sound I was missing with my drum collection was the contrast between super deep bass and the cymbal-like snare sound. I was sold. However... which model to buy? I listened to several other brands, some cheaper, some much higher. None came close to the sound and quality of the LP Americana String Style Cajon. No, this won't replace a traditional multiple head drum set with cymbals. Of course, it also won't take up a quarter of the basement, either. An added bonus: it sounds just as good played quietly as it does for a serious 'nasty traffic commute... gotta pound somethin' stress-relieving percussion workout! The sound out of this box is outstanding and the woodworking quality is absolutely amazing. If LP ever decided to branch out into doing cabinetry, I would send them my kitchen measurements immediately. In fact, my beginning guitar meetup sometimes needs a bit of percussion, especially on some Latin tunes. So, I went back to Sweetwater and ordered the matching LP Cajon carry bag. Now I can provide percussion as well as my own seat.
