I bought an open-box model that needed to have its drive cable replaced. The cables are literally standard mountain bike brake cable, so if you ever break one, you can head over to your nearest bike/outdoors shop and pick up a set of replacements for a reasonably small price.

The construction of everything else is great - the metalwork is all good and the action is fantastic as long as you don't have the drive cable twisted over itself more than you need to. Drive action is customizable for pedal travel, beater travel, and beater height. The beater bracket stays put under the front feet of the cajon very well, and I haven't had too much trouble keeping the foot pedal in place, but I'm also not a terribly animated drummer. Sound was initially a little harsh for my tastes, but a quick drop of the beater height and wrapping it in microfiber cloth brought it to where I wanted.

Great overall for a novice home cajoner

As an acoustic guitar player/singer, many of the situations we play call for a cajon. When my percussionist uses this pedal it works fantastic; that is when it works. The issue is the cable. it's broken during 2 dates and we can't afford to have it happen again. LP - check quality control as it only took a few hours for the cable to snap each time. A more durable cable and this product is a slam dunk great product. A frayed cable makes for a bad gig......need to find an alternative if you are a working slug go musician like we are. LP usually makes fantastic stuff but we are in fairly new territory here I suppose so maybe a few years to work out the kinkys.

    Comments about LP Cajon Pedal:

    This pedal is far superior to the Gibraltar offerings mainly because of the better mounting plate system, better feel/action, better cable path design, and finally a standard bicycle style cable that can easily be replaced or adjusted and easily obtained. Not to mention the beater is far more natural sounding and better padded which adds to the feel and sound. Bravo

      Comments about LP Cajon Pedal:

      I was thrilled to play my new LP cajon pedal... until the cable snapped in the middle of my 6th gig. That was awkward to say the least. My preferred local music store graciously exchanged it for one still in the box. After my 4th gig with that unit, the cable snapped again!

      I own a number of LP products, and I'm generally satisfied with the quality. This item, however, is not a professional level product. It just does not hold up.

      The unfortunate issue from my standpoint is NO ONE out there offers a better alternative, and that puts a professional player in a very bad position. An even worse reality is LP (now owned by DW) is apparently not supporting its retailers when it comes to this kind of thing which leaves them holding the bag for their customers. Not good! DW needs to fix this!

      Comments about LP Cajon Pedal:

      Finally! A quality cajon pedal that does what it promises. I've played both a hand drum set and a traditional drum set for several years, but recently I've started combining elements from both to form a hybrid kit that can accomodate many styles of music and venues. This pedal provides a deep bass sound (on my LP Americana snare cajon), eliminating the need for a regular bass drum in my hybrid set up. I often perform in small, intimate venues, with just a guitarist, and this pedal frees up both hands to play congas, snare/hi-hat, and small percussion. I can quickly remove the cajon from the pedal to play it traditional style. No need to mic it in acoustic settings - it has plenty of volume! However, the cajon needs to be mic'd at plugged-in gigs to be heard prominently in the mix. My bandmates were pleasantly surprised when I played standard bass drum patterns using this pedal on my cajon. My 22" bass drum is staying home for awhile. Thanks LP for turning a promising concept into a satisfying reality.

        Comments about LP Cajon Pedal:

        Snapping the cable is a constant problem and it happens in the middle of gigs. It is a great idea and comes in very handy when playing smaller venues, but an instrument that cannot be counted on in this business is just a toy and has no place in a professional environment until this design flaw is fixed.

            Comments about LP Cajon Pedal:

            This device works great...once you get a professional drummer to make all the adjustments. If you're new to drumming and pedal setup, I highly recommend you get a professional drummer to do the initial adjustments before you use it, and relay that info to you. After setup then it is simple enough to remember. I used mine right out of the box and it scratched my cajon a little. In my drummers opinion it was a very professionally made device, but needed his adjustment expertise. That fact that it has so many adjustments is a plus. That makes it more useful for lots of different users. I only gave it 4 stars because I felt it should have had a setup manual with it.

              After receiving two broken Meinl pedals, I asked customer service to upgrade my order to the LP pedal. Best decision I ever made. The small difference in price is well worth it. Save yourself time and a lot of frustration, and order this much higher quality pedal first.
