You get a great-playing, easy-to-transport cajon that definitely lets you make yourself heard, thanks to the built-in front-firing bass port. The bass port is enhanced by a built-in scoop directs air through the port for a beautiful, rich sound. Another great feature is the backward-tilting front plate that eliminates the need hunch over the cajon, making this an extremely comfortable instrument to play.

Seamless Construction Makes For Good Tones With Poor Durability

The Pearl Sonic Boom seems to have been the first cajon on the market built like a bandpass subwoofer enclosure to get access to really low frequencies that the average smaller cajon can't produce. It uses very good natural woods and seamless construction to achieve its tones. It has a slanted face for comfortable playing with birch construction. As a result of the Pearl's construction, we have had cracks along the seems in three different cajons. Three. Two Sonic Booms and one Mach 3. We have kept the cajons in the same climate-controlled environment alongside the multiple high-end Taylor and Gibson guitars that accompany it, yet Pearl insisted we somehow abused the cajons and used them in harsh conditions. Pearl stopped standing behind their product, and some other online vendors don't even sell it anymore. If it weren't for the absolutely awesome people at Sweetwater who are committed to their customers like no other, we would be out of luck. The Pearl is by far our favorite in terms of volume and bass acoustically and mic'd up, but it simply cannot stand up to being played regularly. A few google searches will reveal this.While the seamless, air-tight construction of the Pearl creates great sounds, you will likely lose a good deal of that once it begins to crack - imagine the sound of a drum head that is out of tune. Too bad. There really is nothing else like this on the market.
