      I've been looking for a cajon for a while now. I ended up going with the Meinl based on price and user reviews, and I'm not disappointed. It's well made and it has a great sound.

        Comments about Meinl Headliner Series Cajon:

        I enjoy experimenting with different instruments and this was my first attempt at percussion. Really easy to create a great sounding addition with this. Everyone I have let play it was able to create a good-to-excellent sound alone or with acoustic instruments. Lots of fun and lets folks easily contribute to an ensemble.

          This was great for out of the box use. No set up was nice, and it needs no power source. It's also extremely portable, which is useful for packing up and going to jam at other houses or venues. Well worth my money, can't think of anything better I could have gotten for this price. Anyone could learn the basics on this, or use it to practice.

          The string snare gives a nice sound but I feel it is not enough. When you record yourself it is very hard to hear it. Overall, the cajon has a great sound and I would definitely recommend, Perhaps, you should try out the one with the snare rather than the guitar strings before buying though.

            Nice sounding cajon. I like the adjustable snare to get the right sound and the non-slip top so I don't slide around as I play.

              Well made cajon. Rubberwood construction in natural finish is attractive, and produces enough resonance and bass . I think it is a good entry level cajon. I am 5'10" and fit comfortably on the medium size. Textured top, adjustable sizzle/snare wires and top corners (for the snap sounds) are nice features.

                    A great cajon purchased for my 18 year olds, play small venues and church band. Much easier than toting drums to venues and sounds wonderful, gives just enough bass to accompany acoustic guitar and 2 voices. Also, shipped fast in order to have for the next show. Great product.
