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.

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.

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.
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.
I do enjoy the ability to turn the snare wires on and off as needed. It gives this instrument a lot more flexibility and versatility. My only criticism is that with the snare wires on, while playing a bass note, the snare wires come into contact more than I would prefer.
Again, this may be an ignorant review as maybe that is how all cajons are suppose to be to a certain extent.
Otherwise, this is a great product. Solid build and great tone for the snare.
