Excellent value. Higher quality than I expected, and fun right out of the box. I use a handkerchief to dampen the strings somewhat, as they are not very adjustable. That's the only thing that kept me from giving it five stars - It should be 4.5.
Cajon was backordered for some time, but worth the wait (after all, it is made in Peru!).
Customer service was very helpful.
I also purchased the warranty, which I hope I never have to use.

I bought this drum to do acoustic sets with my rock band while doing restaurant gigs. I was impressed with how nice the thing was packaged and even the bag was pretty nice. When I pulled it out of the bag I thought I was opening up a 5 graders shop class project some kid made as a gag out of 1/8 plywood rounded off with a belt sander on the edges and corners. I over looked the craftsmanship or lack of and started to play it, that's when I almost got my own jigsaw out and made it into a toilet. They put 2 guitar strings inside the drum face on a tension bar you tighten with an Allen wrench, fastened a cat's bell collar to the center post and call it a snare effect. The only snare effect it gives you is that you were caught in a snare of a trap for buying this piece of scrap wood. I lasted 2 minutes trying to adjust it until I packed it back up in the box and taped it shut for return.

      Comments about Gon Bops Fiesta Cajon Mahogany Front Plate:

      Out of the box, everything was great, it came as advertised. The sound was horrible. No deep sound only a cheap rattle with a bell reverb. The front panel is not removable, take a closer look at the photo. The four guitar strings sound ok but since the front panel is too thin, they combine to make most of the noise, and it is noise, not percussion. I put a tuner on it and tried to adjust the sound. Nothing worked. Great price, good bag, bad design. The front panel needs to be thicker.

        We play weekly as an acoustic duo (two guitars), and have a 3-piece band that plays weekends. We talked our drummer into trying this. He had never played anything like it. He now can now join us for our acoustic shows. GREAT sound, and the gig bag is fantastic! So many tones...our drummer is loving it, and so are we!!

                I never owned a cajon before, so I'm not sure what to compare it to. But I'm very impressed with it. The zipper on the bag was broken, which was a bummer, but kind of expected.

                  Great value. Completes my percussion set up. DID NOT have any problems with the bag that came with it. Looks like I can modify the snare set up-which is a little weak.

                    More than expected. Great for any acoustic activity indoors or outdoors. The front plate will respond every time with crisp tones very forgiving. Easy tuning. The Cajon is affordable you cannot go wrong.
