Product Description

Product Description

To equip a cajon with fully adjustable snare wires is an original MEINL innovation and proves yet again MEINL's leading R/D status in the worldwide percussion scene. The snares touch the frontplate from the inside and deliver the classical cajon sound, which is requisite in Flamenco music. A knurled knob adjusts the amount of pressure used to press the snare wires against the frontplate. Rattling ranging between light and sensitive to very loud can be achieved through adjustment. The entire snare unit can even be turned off completely. With its frontplate made from finest American White Ash (Fraxinus americana L.), this cajon lives up to the highest standards with regards to sound and quality. Material Frontplate: American White Ash (Fraxinus americana L.) Resonating body : Rubber Wood (Hevea brasiliensis Muell.-Arg.) Features Adjustable top corners Internal, adjustable snare wires Relocated knob Padded sitting surface Wide sound options Finish Matt

    Before you buy this particular model I suggest you do research and find a cajon with the sound you want; it definitely isn't a cheap purchase. However if you like the sound of this particular model then I would definitely recommend it. The build quality is very good, and even under my hefty weight the box feels sturdy and strong, even whilst leaning back. The snares are very quick and easy to apply/remove and don't rattle when disengaged. It's loud enough for an acoustic guitar or piano, but if you are amplifying then the soundhole in the back is big enough to drop a microphone in should you wish.

    In conclusion, if you're not sure which cajon you want then go and do some research, watch some videos, listen to some models etc. However if you're thinking of this one then I'd heartily recommend it.

    I love it! 30 Sep 2010

    This is an amazing instrument and Meinl makes a great entry-level cajon. It doesn't feel cheap and it still gives great sound. The adjustable snare mechanic is a little strange at first, but after a few minutes of adjusting I was able to easily find a spot where I could have both snare tones and pure, deep bass hits distinct from each other. While I have not yet used this instrument outside, I do know that it works wonders for impromptu sessions indoors.

    If you are looking for your first cajon, you have found it! If you already have one of your own, then you shouldn't be reading reviews, you know what you are looking for already, and maybe this is it.

    If you are thinking of getting the cheaper Cajon STOP! This one is well worth the additional $89! It simply sounds awesome and the built quality as well.

    my review of the meinl snare cajon with american white ash front 5 Nov 2010
    By anonymous - Published on Amazon.com

    Wonderful sound, perfect condition, quick shipping. 5 Stars.
    Snares are adjustable, screws on top corners are adjustable for snap. I've used this about 5 times in public so far, I usually play guitar/sing and have a friend play along with the Cajon. It's a really easy instrument to pick up and learn how to play quickly. You don't have to put tons of time and effort into it like you do for guitar or a drum set.
    It arrived on my front door step in perfect condition in about.. 4 days, after I ordered it. I've gotten many compliments on it, and a few people i know actually want to buy one for themselves. In my opinion, and the opinion of all the people who have seen me play it, it is well worth what I payed for it on Amazon.com. This is truly an amazing instrument that is so versatile, it can be played with just about any type of music.
    Without a doubt, 5 stars.
