Comments about LP Americana Snare Cajon:
This is my first cajon.
I have been looking for quite a while trying to decide which cajon to buy, being that there is a vast array of different brands and styles out there to choose from which makes it very difficult to decide.
After checking out many videos of the multitudinous boxes, I had it narrowed down to Gon Bop Alex Acuna model, Kotz and Schlagwerk. All of them sounded excellent making choosing one very difficult.
Then LP came out with their Americana series featuring snares and wires from Pure Sound™ and D'Addario respectively. After watching the demo videos of the three different models offered, I decided I wanted a cajon that would more represent a drumset sound with a crisp snare attack. That's when I decided to choose the LP Americana Snare model.
My order was on backorder for a couple extra weeks, but when I received my cajon, took it out of the box and played it I was very pleased with the sounds and tone it displayed. The front panel is very responsive, the snares are crisp and lively and the overall tone is resonant with a modest decay.
Overall, I am pleased with this instrument as a first time pick. I'm sure it will give me hours of enjoyment as I learn its many nuances and possibilities.
