I just bought this today, played every cajon in the store under $200 and this one, the very lowest priced, had better overall tone than all of them <200. The low end tone was lower than most and I like the fact that the snares are only at the top 1/3 of the box, rather than running the full length, so you have almost snareless bottom end. Also there are two wide snares so they react very well to medium tapping. The $159 LP had better low end but to get the snare to respond it had to be slapped very hard and still didn't seem to activate very well. I have been sharing a $200 "Meinl-Siam-Oak-Adjustable Snare-Cajon-with-White-Ash-Frontplate" for a few years with my son (he took it with him to college)and it has a good sound as well, but I believe this Pearl sounds as good and was on sale for $88 bucks, plus TT&L! Awesome deal. Picked up the Road Runner Cajon carry case for $49 and I'm ready to roll. You should get a case if you're gigging or toting any musical instrument made of wood. Otherwise, scratches, cracks, splits, dings and road rash are inevitable. I gave this Pearl 4-stars only because I haven't played it mic'd or with a band yet, and when I do that and get this Pearl and the Meinl side-by-side I'll update my review.

The main problem is probably the drum head. Its bass tone is messy/muddy/boomy without much punch or definition. The snares are somehow both tinny and middy, as well as hollow, not very crisp. They do sound enough like snares to get by when there's no other percussion, though having played with a drummer with even his snares off and the drum somewhat detuned, the snares in the cajon weren't enough to cut through the mix, though that probably shouldn't be expected of something like this. I've tried some Vater brushes and they aren't very responsive on this cajon's drum head, though you might be able to get a better sound with some thinner and more wirey bristles. Since I got it, mine has had a noticeable rattle when it's played and it's pretty noticeable on recordings. It's undeniably one of the most cheaply constructed cajons out there. Positive reviews are probably coming from people who don't know what a decent cajon sounds like.

Bought a new one, received a used floor model

Comments about Pearl Canyon Cajon with Fixed Snare:

Never had a chance to properly use, because I returned it to the store the day after it arrived. I ordered a new one from this website, and received a used floor model from the Atlanta store. Pretty rotten way to treat good customers. I guess I was not supposed to notice it was used? Wow!

Did notice that it had a lot of snare and little low end, but being a used unit with the top corners separating from the edges, it could have been a fluke.

Bottom line, I cannot trust ordering from GC any longer; their Music 123 and WW & BW always ship new from the MO warehouse, not sure what went wrong this time, but I will think twice before ordering or buying from GC again.

          It's more than decent, has a fine sound. Gets drowned out at drum circles by louder djembe drums but for a music night at home, needing some accompaniment or just a sturdy stool for a guest - does the job nicely.

          Love the look and feel, easy to play and very responsive. We wanted something anyone can play and feel like they are part of the jam session, it adds a chair and an instrument all in one. Ours doesn't get played very much so not sure how it would hold up gigging and toting it around the coffee shops.

                  Maybe not sensitive enough for quiet folk songs, but it rocks with brushes!
