Customer Reviews
3.5 out of 5 (1 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Don't judge a book by its cover."
Sound: Surprisingly projects very well. Very bass heavy. Had no issues playing in a 12 piece band. However be very well prepared to adjust the snares when you receive it. Non-playing side has a nice, resonant natural wood sound too. Feature: It's nice that it comes with an Alan wrench to adjust the snares. Also came with a pad that you can sit on with a peel off adhesive. Soft case isn't great; but it's convenient. Ease of Use: Again going back to the focus o my review: You have to make adjustments. Once you have it spec.ed the way you like it, it actually sounds pretty good. Plays well. Quality: I recieved the product with 2 pretty gnarly dents in it. Not a huge deal for me personally because I like a little character; but I could very much understand frustration. It's made out of plywood. Pretty sturdy. Case is decent. Value: If you're looking for something a little more professional; I'd spend the extra 40 bucks or whatever on a little nicer one. However if you just want something for light jamming and to tote around I definitely think this is a good deal. Manufacturer Support: Gave 5 stars because I did not contact. The Wow Factor: The only thing that I think really makes this cajon stand out from others is the resonance on the lower end. Mine, at least, is very boom-y. Overall: The second I got this cajon I immediately wanted to return it. It sounded Very very cheap. It's made out of plywood however the playing side has a very thin mahogany veneer on it. However I decided to use it as a learning experience and experiment with different ways to play it/change the sound. It came with the guitar string "snares" which is okay; however the most important thing, to me, is the distinction between the "bass" sound and the "snare" sound. It was hardly distinguishable. However I put some electrical tape on the bottom of the snares as well as tightened them quite a bit (comes with an Alan wrench) and decided to bring it to a gig. I was really impressed a how much the sound changed with just those few minor tweaks. I would recommend this as a good cajon to travel with. However don't expect a great sound without making some personal adjustments.
