The Meinl Bongo Cajon is uniquely different from a traditional cajon. It delivers the sound one expects from a traditional cajon, but the playing surface has high- and low-pitched areas so it can play bongo patterns as well. The bongo cajon's compact size and light weight make it a perfect companion on the road.

I had an idea what this box would sound like but was really surprised by how good it responds to taps and slaps. The lightest touch yields beautiful tone. This box works out really well when recording. It compliments the tracks I;m recording with my larger Cajon Bass/Snare setup. Great value. Worth every penny.
The bongo cajon is just right for our little back porch acoustic jam sessions. Anyone that stops by,(for the most part) enjoys having their turn at playing the cajon. This bongo cajon is built tuff, sounds great and easy to carry around. I might invest in one that has snare also. Lots of fun!!!
Bought this because I wanted something simple. I am a newbie but have a conga , tamba, cajon and a tritone so this was the missing link. Didn't really care for a snare sound so this was the choice. Well made, sounds cool and I actually have it on a table as a decoration too, it looks so nice. Its fun and simple and thats want I needed for now.
I've been playing drums Cajon and guitar for 6 years. I just got this in the mail today and im already in love with it! it has a really great sound. it can be loud when you want it loud and soft when you want it soft. I i ever lost it id buy another one!
I have been looking for something smaller than my djembe to take to drum circles, or to just have with me in case a jam breaks out somewhere. I started looking at bongos, and discovered this. This is a great little drum! I can get a wide range of sounds from it, and it's much easier to carry around than bongos would have been. I can play all of my djembe rhythms, plus a lot more. It's a little to wide to comfortably hold between my knees, but I can work around that. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for portability and great sound.
As a percussionist I'm always looking for new pieces to add to my bag-of-tricks. About nine months ago I bought and subsequently returned two rather nice sets of Bongos before settling on this Meinl Bongo Cajon. The weight and portability of the Bongo Cajon make it ideal for the situation in which I use it. The tone variations are surprisingly wide. Coupled with it's simplicity, this instrument has captured the attention of a number of listeners who have approached me after a performance to inquire about the "box". Along with the assortment of Hand Drums, Shakers, Triangles and Tambourine that I use commonly, the Meinl Bongo Cajon is very much part of my "starting line-up".
This bongo cajon is so great because it's not heavy what so ever, which makes it very portable and it produces a great sound. Not only that, it looks awesome too. It's perfect to jam with some acoustic guitars. I also use it to practice when everyone is asleep in my house. It's deffinitely not too quiet and it's not too loud. I love this thing.
I play rythem for a trio and wanted to add some sound. What great addition. Mostly play ouside. Mounted it on a bongo stand and play with malletts. Great sound and easy to learn. Great addition to any trio playing Buffett, Drifters, and any summer music. Terrific buy.
This is a great product. It looks really cool and feels very solid. I like that it doesn't need to be tuned like bongos with skins.
Wanted to add some sound to my trio and instead og banging on my guitar wanted something small and easy. used this past weekend for the first time. LOVED it. Big sound in a small package. Will be mounting it for use this summer. Great for a non-drummer.
