As you can see from the photos, this is not an under sized cajon. I am 6-1, 195 and find it comfortable. The onlyCon I can find with this cajon is the snare is noticeable when striking bass note. Of course you cannot expect a $100 cajon(that comes with a $30 or more case) to have the separation and tonal abilities of a $300 cajon. I did

Purchased this cajon to be played in a church band. The cajon itself is lightweight which is good since it is frequently moved about. However, it doesn't mean that it's cheaply made. It is firmly and solidly constructed. The wood and materials are very high quality as it delivers a very rich sound which fills the room. Little force is

I did a lot of research to find maracas for my husband that he could play in his band. There are a lot of maracas for children, and I had to filter through and find some that are meant for serious play by an adult. These are good and sturdy, comfortable to hold and loud enough to hear when he performs, even competing with screaming

I just couldn't be more satisfied. Need to mention all

ABSOLUTELY PHENOMENAL!!! I LOVE THIS DRUM UNEQUIVOCALLY! As a long time free jazz avant-garde jam band percussionist and drummer, I have played many a hand drum, and honestly, This is the BEST sounding djembe I have ever owned. I can't recommend this highly enough. As a longtime naturalist / Sierra Club and Audubon member, I

So disappointed in this product. Bought it as a Christmas gift ahead time, only to find that on Christmas, when we opened it the quality and workmanship was very poor. Doesn’t make a good sound. Sounds like newspaper crumbling. Not like a quality drum. Tried to return it, as the tags are still on it, and they rejected the return

My son is interested in drums and wanted him to try this little tongue drum that I have come across.It is simply amazing to put it together. The sounds that it produces is absolutely ear pleasing. Even a naive can easily get along with this and start playing music. The drumsticks are just of the right size to play with them.My 10 yrs old

So, I just purchased and tried out this steel tongue drum musical instrument and it really does have a nice and soothing sound mixed with high and low rich tones. It is a 6-inch 8-note steel tongue drum comes that actually comes pre-tuned to C major, mallets, music music book, bag, notes sticker, and picks.It is very durable and stable

So as you can imagine I saw a band on stage one night playing this box looking thing. I was fascinated with how it sounded so authentic but without having a drum set on stage I just new it was some expensive device. Looked online and found the Cajon was well priced.

One of my favorite places to play drums is on the dash of our car with the music blasting. I was a drummer in high school and have a decent drum kit at home, but I thought it would be good to get something more portable and easier to play. Something that would reproduce the pleasure of playing on the car dash.A while back, I played a

I have been drumming for 20 years, and to expand my ability to play smaller venues I choose to add a cajon. I spent weeks checking on many cajons in different price ranges, but this one seemed to have the things I wanted at the right price.First, the sound, obviously I am no cajon expert, this is my first, but here we go anyway.

I have had two other cajons over the past 7 years I purchased for specific gigs I was playing, then moved them on when I was done. 1st about $185, the 2nd in the $300 range as it was one of the first 3 playing sides with a plastic face that I wanted to put a bass pedal on as they did not have the cajon ones then.

Use an LP claw to mount to my snare drum top rim. If you put the stick butt on the snare and then hit the rim, then you can hit the block instead of the rim and get a louder rim shot. Or hit the block directly instead of a rim shot. I do that on a lot of country songs that our band plays...Amarillo By Morning for example. The SM57 on the

Excellent material has a crisp attack, a loud sustain and a vert fast decay sound envelope, very closely mimicking wood. The timbral quality is still inorganic, but its resilience to outside / seasonsal forces more than makes up for it. Perfect for Latin or Rock/Pop bands. Lp has really done a solid with this item.

Those are real double rim bongos. The natural wood and real skin heads give them a warm and resonant tone. One of my skins has a slight blemish, I guess it's due to using natural materials instead of man-made, but it doesn't affect the sound.

Meinl overs these shakers in three "volume" levels (red, black, and silver cases) designated soft, medium, and loud. I have all three.This silver model has very sharp-edged pellets inside, and with two shaker tubes makes a lot of noise. I am confident it would cut through well in a live playing situation.

In the product photo, the offset position of each pair makes it look like you get 2 of each kind - I had expected to be able to use one in each hand to play contrasting rhythms. Instead, each pair is permanently joined and can not be separated. Also, there is very little difference between the soft (black) and medium (red) versions - I

I was interested in buying a steel drum and became aware of this instrument that I had never seen before. I purchased the version with eleven tones, and am pleased with what I received.

Well, as far as I can tell, this is working ok.

My review of the Meinl Jumbo Bass cajon is based ultimately on my wants and how my expectations were met. That said, here is a rundown of what I desired and how this cajon fared:1. Size and comfort: I am 6’3” and wanted a larger box to sit on. I’ve sat on an average $100 cajon, and though they would hold my 225 lbs. up, the play

Great cajon but not enough snare rattle, so I bought and installed two extra sets of snare wire, now it's perfect! Now this cajon could actually replace a full drum set because it sounds big! It’s got almost as much low end “thump“ as a good kick drum on a regular drum set. We don’t have to do much EQ on this one to make it

I bought one of these--sight unseen, and obviously, sound unheard. It does not have a nice sound, and I am sending it back. My only other cajon is the A Temp Dos Voces, so all comparisons are made with that. My A Temp has a warmer base, better snare, more snap in the corners, and has a definite gradation from base to open tone , to snare
