  • Excellent instrument

    As reviewed by LEE STEITZ _ on 5/10/2013

    I first saw the Slap-Top Cajon at NAMM 2013. I visited the Meinl booth numerous times to see the young lady playing it and I was hooked. When one of my bands decided to bring in several songs that would be perfect for me to play on the Slap-Top instead of my full kit, I ordered one. It shipped immediately and it was here fast! I love the cajon and plan on using it extensively. It sounds great, it looks great and it plays well. I may even have a place for it on a song I'm recording for an album with another band. It's a great addition to my percussion arsenal. Good job Meinl...

  • nice box

    As reviewed by Ron Fields on 1/25/2013

    The innovative design is nice creating a better posture and balance for performing...look at the audience or sing. This position also allows you to use hi-hat and pedals. There are three distinct sounds the bass(middle), snare(left area) and tom(right area). I've only had for a month but seems to be well constructed and the Makah-Burl playing surface is nice.

  • Great Sounding Drum!

    As reviewed by Minnie Beltran on 3/27/2013

    This drum is great, and after playing and hearing the ranges I can get I am shocked it?s so inexpensive. I own 2 other traditional cajons (one being the $300 Meinl trejon) and the slaptop has by far the BEST snare sound of any of them. The bass is not particularly deep but still there, and this drum has the added bonus of a tom sound which many cajons don?t have. Another great aspect of this drum is the upright playing surface. If not played correctly a traditional cajon can cause serious back problems over time but you don?t have to worry about that with this drums style. The only negative aspect I found was a durability problem. When I ordered my first slaptop I played it seriously hard for a couple days and I noticed a weird sound like two pieces of wood hitting each other in the lower bass section. I went to my local Guitar Center and got it replaced with a new one. I?ve had it almost 4 months now with no problems after I lightened my touch a bit and it still sounds great! Overall highly recommended instrument!
