I ordered the product using my 1-month free trial of amazon prime, so needless to say delivery was spotless and very very quick.
The cajon is STUNNING. Such a beautiful front face, really unique pattern and unlike anything I've ever used previously. Bought the standard white ash offering from Meinl last year and sent it back due arriving with a broken sizzle effect. Decided to try another cajon this year and loved the Black Makah Burl in the photos.
This cajon had a stringed face as opposed to the cheaper (and in my opinion nastier) sizzle effect... giving really good crisp "snare" sounds and a lovely resonant "bass" boom. There's a convenient hole at the back (for improved acoustics i believe) which I will use to mic the cajon up if I ever need to. There's a hook inside to hang a microphone from too!
I bought the recommended "Meinl MCJB Cajon Bag" and it fits perfectly (something I was worried about due to the lack of dimensions supplied.)
Great buy... could be cheaper on Thomann but I always go for amazon.co.uk because I trust the company.
I hope you enjoy the cajon, I know I am!

Fantastic Bought for my son on his 7th birthday after coming highly recommended by my 22 year old brother who has one. It sits in the hall and we all, including visitors, play it every day.
Even my youngest who started crawling recently plays it! He's 8 months old!!

Great sound and great fun, everyone loves playing it! First class delivery and build quality- I can thoroughly recommend it, initially an impulse purchase, but no regrets.
