  • Great Cajon

    As reviewed by Timothy on 2/8/2008

    The Meinl Pickup Snare Cajon is a great idea, and it's done well. The cajon itself is a good size and has a good sound, deep bass and pronounced slaps when adjusted for that. There's lots of versatility, the wood has a specific tone that makes it sound much better than you think playing a box would :) It's built well, finished nicely, there's a nice grain, good color, the pad on top is a little thin but it's an improvement to simply sitting on wood. For the size I don't think you can beat it by much as far as sound goes. The larger Fat Congas have a deeper and louder sound, but the Meinl makes up for that by being more portable and the incorporating the neat little pickup. The DST mic picks up a lot of tone and it's very sensitive. It will pick up anything you play on the cajon- anywhere on the cajon- without picking up any noise outside of the cajon. It picks up the snare well enough, though if you really want that loud sizzle for gigs or recording I'd recommend putting another mic in front in addition to the pickup. The pickup makes it great for when you are playing other instruments and mics are limited or you just want to plug and play and not worry about rigging up anything. This has been a wonderful addition to my instrument arsenal and I take it everywhere I go.

  • Great Cajon

    As reviewed by Greg Griffith on 4/29/2009

    The Meinl Pickup Snare Cajon with White Ash Frontplate is overall a great cajon. When you plug this sucker in it sounds amazing. Once your plug it in you can mess with the EQ on a soundboard and get many amazing versatility out of it: from sounding like a drum set to sounding like a true Latin percussion instrument. This cajon is perfect for on the road acoustic sets and adds great sound to any type of acoustic music in general. The only complaints I have about this cajon is that it does not sound very good when it is not plugged in. When it's plugged in the bass come out and it sounds great, but without an amp or a PA it only sounds ok. Also this cajon hardly resonates at all, which can be both a good thing or a bad thing depending what your looking for. With the right EQ or adding a external mic you can fix this, but, again, without amplification it does not have a beautiful sound.

  • Great Cajon!

    As reviewed by Matt H on 10/29/2009

    This is a great quality instrument with a nice, deep bass sound and a greta slap when properly adjusted. I had to tweak it just a little bit to get the slap sounding they way I wanted it but it was easily done with just a phillips head screwdriver. The pickup with the quarter inch out is awesome. It saves the hassle of having to set up a mic behind the cajon and the gain knob is a cool feature. However, I found that the knob needed to be cranked for the sound man to get any kind of usable signal from the pickup. Also a built-in EQ would be a very useful addition to this instrument. Overall though, great sound, great finish, great cajon. Definitely a good buy
