Comments about Meinl Subwoofer Jumbo Bass Cajon:

I bought this cajon to replace an entry level schlagwerk (x-one series to be specific). I didn't need another cajon, but I wanted one. I've played most cajons you will find at big box stores and for someone on a budget you're limited. If you have little to no experience you will get a cheap, cruddy sounding instrument.
This cajon is not a cruddy instrument. It has super deep bass, nice corner slaps/snares, the sound projection is convenient, all around good for a modern drummer or beginners.
If you are an experienced percussionist looking for a high end cajon, this is not for you. The plastic body does not resonate when played. The only playable surface is the front plate. Mic'd it may sound different, but as a stand alone acoustic instrument -(which is the intent of a traditional cajon)- you have one option, the front.

All this taken into consideration, I still give it 5 stars. It isn't awful sounding. It just isn't a "cajon players" cajon.

    Comments about Meinl Subwoofer Jumbo Bass Cajon:

    I've been looking at Cajon's for about three years. Just haven't been very impressed with the sound. Until I played this big bass Cajon by Meinl. Amazing sound. I accompany live acoustic musicians at live venues and wanted something I wouldn't have to mic. With the big bass ports aimed forward, there is no need for amplification. Well made. Large size. Great sound. Very happy.

      Best Uses

      • Larger Acoustic Settings

      Comments about Meinl Subwoofer Jumbo Bass Cajon:

      I've been a fan of Cajons for a while now due to their portability and versatility for groups on the move. This one has the deepest tone and best projection of any I've used so far. In our church sanctuary with roughly 450 seats, it needs no amplification to be heard adequately. It also works well for balancing smaller vocal groups because the deep tone tends to compete less with vocal frequencies. For convenience of set-up in larger venues, it would be nice if it had an internal pick-up, but this is a small gripe considering that it does what it was designed to do very well. (So good I hesitate to give it only 4 stars.)

      Comments about Meinl Subwoofer Jumbo Bass Cajon:

      I upgraded from a Meinl Makah Burl String Cajon. Sadly the guitar strings somehow got disconnected from the tension screws and could no longer tighten them. This one however had me at the low frequencies it produces when the bass section is hit, so I picked it up hoping that I wouldn't have to mic it when playing for worship services.

      Overall I am very happy with this cajon because it can be distinguished from guitars, keys, vocals, and even bass without having to mic it. The low frequencies that gave this cajon its name can be heard in small rooms and studio recordings. However I recommended it for it to be miced when playing in front of big crowds for those frequencies to be heard. Even if a mic is not handy, it will definitely be heard. The snare sound doesn't really stand out to me as extravagant, but it's good enough to do the job. If you are going to play on the sides of the cajon, I would recommend to hit on the back instead of the sides because you get more resonance than on the sides since they are made out of fiberglass.

      The only cons of this cajon are its weight, and the uncomfortable top. It's really not very heavy, and it comes with a handle on the back where resonators for common cajons usually are. However I do understand that it can be heavy for some. If you have a bony butt like I do, you would want to get a pillow or buy some sort of pad that you can sit on for a while.

      Despite the cons, this cajon is great for any gig small or large, loud or soft. It has become one of my all time favorites very quickly.

      Used this box in a blues venue. Sound was incredible. The bass is very recognizable and the sweet spot is right where it should be. Good quality with that responsive snare sound mixed in. I would definitely recommend this purchase. I still would mic this box if performing with a band.

                        Tried all the cajons at GC, this one had the best low end response. Also like the sound holes in the front and with the jumbo size a little more to sit on if your a bigger person.
