I already own the American white ash Cajon by meinl which is similar to this but wider and no seat pad. These are positives compared to the white ash. This one was also a bit cheaper and the body colour difference of black and natural gives a personal preferance feel. There are some negatives in comparison too though. This was a little harder to set up the corners to snap and the tuning of the snare didn't sound as good. However it still sounds good and better than some others heard on youtube. It is normal to need to put masking tape across the guitar wires against the front plate. Despite this knowledge I didnt need to with the white ash as it had elastic across them already. So it would have been nice to have had the elastic in this one to make the strings less noisy but max snare effect. If you feel masking tape is needed in your Cajon then place it across the wires about 5- 7 inches from the bottom. Another piece can be placed near the top if needed but mine didn't need it. As this is a different size to the ash it has a slightly higher pitch across all its sounds. To adjust the corners some people leave the far screws out completely while others loosen them two turns. Either way the center top screw should be exactly as needed and the screws either side are usually loosened one turn to one and a half turns. If they stick out too much though then this is not good and need to be adjusted. I will admit that on mine one screw is crooked which is annoying as it sticks out when loosened one turn but only on one side of the screw. When you loosen the screws at the top the pitch lowers slightly and is normal. Even with two turns on the top cormers I wasn't getting the snap. So that is easily adjusted too. Just take out the top cornerscrew for now, loosen the screw below it on the side (not top) until the screw is quite sticking out. Get a small square of paper and fold it. Wedge it above the srew about an inch higher than the screw but you can put it half an inch too. Tighten the screw up to how it was. Do not over tighten. Put the corner screw back in and tighten until you get the snap sound you want. Or tighten to how it was on arrival and then loosen two turns. On the white ash I left the corner screws in at two and a bit turns loose but this Cajon I have left them out completely and used the wedge. It is not as awesome a snap/clap sound as the white ash but it is pretty good and sounds good with the other sounds produced on this Cajon. The seat pad had a sticker on it which left a stickiness to it that could be seen and felt. No problem though as wd40 can be sprayed on it and wiped with a dry cloth. Then wash with mild soap or cleaning spray. Perfect!

The bass on this is not a booming as the white ash model as it is a smaller box overall, but it is still pretty bassy. The build it good quality and although it isn't a professional snare switch Cajon, it comes quite close. Good value for money and the front plate looks really cool.

Just arrived and its sounds great. The delivery was super quick and was suprised to see it turn up on a sunday.
Unrapped it and played it straight out the box. I had searched around and read reviews on many different models. I even watch youtube to hear them. I chose this one as I like the sound and a lot of people said that for the money it is one of the better around, and their not wrong.
