ATTENTION! LONG-TERM USE REVIEW HERE! We bought this on Amazon almost 10 years ago as one of our (then toddler) son's first instruments. It has now been banged on by two boys growing up, their friends, used as a stool, action figure launcher, and who knows what else. This thing is of HIGH QUALITY. Remo makes great instruments. They also

Function: Great sounding little drum! Kids will love it. Parents will learn to love it.Durability: We purchased this drum 8 months ago for our son's birthday. In that 8 months, it's been thoroughly enjoyed by our three toddlers. It's also been re-purposed and abused... and not just a little bit. A lot of bit. This drum has proven to be

The picture online does not do this justice. When you see these in person, they are beautiful. The sunburst finish really looks nice. These are also very solid. They were heavier than I thought they would be. They were also quieter than I thought they would be. And if you stuff each one of them with a t-shirt, you can really muffle them

I looked for weeks before buying one to ensure I bought the right one. Took a "Beats" class and the teacher said great choice! It is quality made. Sounds great, not childish, but anyone could play it. I would highly recommend this company. I will be ordering more musical instruments from them! Thanks for the great buy

These bongos have solid construction and are a great set for beginners. They sound great. I wasn't sure about the ABS body instead of wood but it doesn't seem to effect the tone that much. I get a nice bright bong and a nice lower tone on the bigger one. The hide skin heads are the same high quality they put on their more expensive

I've been playing drums for over 25 years. I have plenty of professional drums lying around the house. I consider them all good instruments, but they are too big and too fragile for my kids. I got them this for Christmas. Great sounds, good quality, and very durable. They are quieter than my professional grade bongos and they sound

Great quality and sound! I bought this for my son around his first birthday. It has held up to my son sitting in it, sitting on it, standing on it, hitting it with the stick, hitting with his hand, hitting it with blocks, wearing it as a hat, stacking blocks on it and more! I would gladly buy this again for any child or

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

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

This thing is impossible to play without hitting it hard with a big stick, especially if it is attached to a post. And when you hit it you get a big thud sound before the jingles rattle. Also it's very small. Save your money and buy an LP Cyclops instead. I have one and its dimpled brass jingles sound great. Get the one that has a unit

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. I have found that it tends to

As a massive Gloria Estefan and the Miami Sound Machine fan, I went ahead and bought this shaker in case the Miami Sound Machine ever makes a comeback. This way I could practice and be ready to Get On My Feet and Turn the Beat Around in the event the Miami Sound Machine held open tryouts for a shaker. The shaker is very durable, easy to

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 played the drums for many years growing up. Haven't lived somewhere that I could own a kit because of the noise levels in some time. Haven't wanted to drop thousands on an electric kit.

This drum has a wonderful sound, in special when played  with the mallets included. The finger tapping is ok but I found that it was too muted for my liking and my fingers got sore quickly.

I like the smooth sounds of this steel tongue drum. It is calm, serene sounds are amazing. When I play, I automatically want to fall asleep.

I ordered this after seeing some positive reviews. However, right away, using two different tuners, it showed it is out of tune. These drums MUST come in tune because trying to tune them yourself is difficult and can easily make them unreturnable. This is per their own literature. The stickers for the numbers weren't applied with care,

A test demo of the Kmise Steel tongue drum. It actually sounds very bell like on the edge tongues and gong like in the center ones. Various locations on the tongue that you strike will alter the sound it makes whether you play by mallet or fingers. Also how quickly you tap the tongue will let the sound ring out or mute it.

I didn't realize this came with little rubber balls to put on your fingers or drumsticks... both of which make playing this better. I thought I would just go at it with my thumbs like you'd see on Youtube videos... but there's a lot that you don't see.This thing will likely outlast me by centuries.

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

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.

I love having musical instruments around the house that are easy to tinker with and play little songs. This may be one of the easiest to pick up that we've bought so far! Immediately after opening the package everybody wanted a turn to play a song on it.The numbers/branding is just a clear sticker so they could be removed if you want.

This tongue drum is well built and has a nice sound. It did come with most of the tongues out of tune, as can be expected considering the moderate price (thus only 4 stars). Since these tongues were all flat, I was able to tune them by using a small rotary tool and grinding paint and metal off of their inside tips. The photo is taken

I have been drumming for 20 years, and to expand my ability to play smaller venues I choose to add a cajon.

Those are real double rim bongos. The natural wood and real skin heads give them a warm and resonant tone.

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
