OVERVIEW

A cajon that plays bongo patterns.

The Meinl Bongo Cajon is uniquely different from a traditional cajon. It delivers the sound one expects from a traditional cajon, but the playing surface has high- and low-pitched areas so it can play bongo patterns as well. The bongo cajon's compact size and light weight make it a perfect companion on the road.

FEATURES
  • Siam oak
  • Features high- and low-pitched tones

    Comments about Meinl Bongo Cajon:

    One word review: "wow!"
    These are a fantastic alternative to traditional bongos. They really do perform as advertised - a strikingly similar tone without any of the hassle or maintenance of having tune-able heads. Of course, the limitation is that you obviously can not tune this to specific pitches - but in most settings, realistically - how often does anyone actually do that? They produce a pretty big sound with a light touch that cuts through the room, and I actually find it easier to produce a variety of tones on these than on traditional bongos. Very happy with this purchase!

                    Used for monthly fun sessions with "drums-and-auxiliaries" group. Easier to carry than larger, traditional drums, and less sensitive to ambient weather conditions.

                      I am new to the bongo cajon but couldn't be more pleased with this product! I have been watching videos to learn to play and I am truly amazed at the sounds this box can make!! Not only does it sounds great it is also quite beautiful. It is well made, nice finish, and it super easy to carry with wherever that may be. I just took it on a 10 hour road trip to the mountains and had a great time jammin on the highway:)

                        Love the bongo cajon much better than standard bongos - sound better and less hassle. Plus, it is fun to play. It's great for beach music, 50s-60s stuff, Latin funkadelic, etc. I'm working on integrating it into my set.
