OVERVIEW

With a modest price tag, the rich payoff of the LP Aspire Cajon is in solid bass tones.

This LP Aspire Accents cajon has a front ply hardwood playing surface with a solid hardwood body. Its large rubber feet keep it in place while you're pounding out those tasty beats.

The LP Aspire cajon gains its emphatic bottom-end from a solid hardwood body, constructed from woods chosen for their resonant properties. The interior houses a set of wire snares for those authentic flamenco trills and the durable hardwood front panel is adjustable with varying screw tension. The internal snare wires are easily accessed and adjusted, as is the front panel.

The height is a convenient 17-1/4", comfortable for all players, while the width is 12" for ample resonance. To ensure that bass tones are not grounded into hardwood or otherwise non-carpeted floors, the LP Aspire cajon drum is fitted with large rubber feet.

Priced well and constructed sturdily, the Latin Percussion cajon is the perfect hand drum to introduce students, hobbyists, and even working club musicians to one of the hottest percussion instruments on the planet.

FEATURES
  • Solid hardwood body
  • Wire snares
  • Durable hardwood front panel, adjustable with varying screw tensions

for the money this won out. in store I tried it, meinl headliner, and two $300 cajons. headliner was nasty sounding (snares were rattly and loose despite being tightened by me and the salesman, bass was thin and high pitched despite brief attempt to tune it lower). one $300 model was much deeper in bass than all the rest and would have won out if I'd had $300 to spend. other $300 model and this lp aspire accent, once the accent was properly tuned by the salesman and myself in the store, were pretty similar sounding and feeling, and the aspire looks much nicer.

A pro sounding unit for entry level money and none of the nasty snare sound of the headliner. I've heard headliners sound good and bad on youtube, but this was in a different league and I thought I wouldnt' be able to afford something that sounded, and looked, this good.

I bought it!
uses screwdriver for all adjustments, not included. no snare adjuster on side (on/off) like pricier models have. but the features it does include work very well indeed.
very good but plywood front that I would imagine is different in the pricier models. feels good and solid, but obviously not in the same league as the pro models and I doubt it will last as well. thin woods, but solid feeling for sure right now.
better by far sounding and looking than the #1 entry level model in the store, the meinl headliner.

if you want a meinl, check these out too, it might be more what you're looking for if you are worried about rough sounding loose snare rattles and want good solid deep bass resonance without a bunch of crunchy snare sound from the bass.

I tried out several models in store, studied many reviews, and settled on this model. So when a scratch & dent came up for sale, I snapped it up. The blemishes don't seem significant but the tonal range seems limited. I don't know if it's the blemishes, I doubt it, or if what I was hearing in the store was misleading. Low end is poor for such a large size and the higher tones seem weak. Snares are supposed to be adjustable but, as a scratch & dent, it came without an owners manual & LP couldn't send me one. They just referred me to a video which was useless. There are screws all around the sides of one panel. If they have be backed out in unison to change snare sound, that's a ridiculous pain.

    Comments about LP Aspire Accents Cajon:

    I think this is a great starter cajon. I wanted to do some busking on the street with some friends, and I didn't want to commit a lot of money to a set of congas. This was much less expensive, but easily transported and easily set up. I play mostly blues and classic rock with it, but it allows for so many different types of music. I've never miked it, but I'm sure it would do fine miked up. Very happy with this purchase make a few years ago.

        This was purchased as a gift for my son-in-law who is an excellent drummer. He recently turned his drum set space into a baby nursery! So this attractive cajon gives him a pleasant, space saving alternative. He loves it!

              I purchased this cajon based on all the other reviews I read on this website and all of the reviews were accurate. I play the drum set and was looking for an easy way to bring the sound of the drum set without lugging aroound a complete set. One of the things I was looking for in my first cajon was a deep bass tone which this one has. The snare responce and tone are just right. The cajon is well made and looks good too. If you are exploring the cajon for the first time like me, this is a great instrument to start you off and a reasonable price point. You would't be disappointed!

                Comments about LP Aspire Accents Cajon:

                I did some research before buying my own cajon. I played a Meinl Headliner snare cajon for 3 years for our church worship, "unplugged" and double mic'd. The LP Aspire Accents cajon has very little "buzz" when playing bass tones and is more responsive than other cajons I have played. I especially like the multiple rows of snare wires in their own section at the inside top of the cajon. The only drawback in my opinion is that the snare cannot be adjusted or turned off but I found that the back of the cajon has a nice sound if you switch it up between songs.

                  This cajon has a great sound!

                  I really wanted a cajon to replace lugging my drumset around for small gigs where the whole cymbals/mutilple toms setup was unnecessary. However, I mostly bought this for playing in church. I went to Guitar Center set on buying a Meinl, but after trying them all out I went with this one. It had a much deeper bass and better snare "pop". I like that it has actual snares rather than the two strings like Meinl has. It has been super fun to play. I always thought the LP Aspire line in all their instruments was "cheap" but this cajon has definitely proven me wrong. It gets a great sound and is really versatile.

                  Comments about LP Aspire Accents Cajon:

                  I've been playing guitar and drums for about 20 years, and have heard about a Cajon since I saw one played on stage about 4 years ago. Needless to say, I wanted one. After looking at the options and reading the reviews, I chose this one because so many people said that the tone was really great. One can fix a lot of things in an instrument, but tone is not one of them. It either has it or it doesn't. The tone IS great, but the "snare" sound cannot be distinguished from the bass tone, which makes the bass tone a bit muddy. I would still recommend it, but I would possibly look at some other options, or at least try it in the store before you buy to ensure that you are getting the sound that you want.

                  I bought this Cajon based on the reviews I read and they were pretty accurate. Very pleased. Great bottom tone and snare crack, used it for a recording and it sounded a lot like a full set minus cymbals. I guess the only drawback is the snare isn't adjustable.
