    Comments about Meinl Headliner Series Cajon:

    I was really amazed at how good this box sounds. I am a professional drummer and I started playing this a few months ago and it sounds better and better. I really underestimated the design and engineering quality. I love it.

          Comments about Meinl Headliner Series Cajon:

          Impressed with the build and sound quality of this cajon. I've played this cajon a few times for practice with a gig coming up soon. During one practice with an acoustic, bass with amp, and singer, I mic'd the room with an omnidirectional mic. I was surprised how good it sounded on the recording. Very versatile with the right amount of volume.

            My granddaughter tried several cajons in the store, and she picked out this one even though there were more expensive ones available. She was thrilled; she loves it!

              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.

                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.

                  I found that sitting on it renders a different sound/deeper and a more mellow tone when not sitting on it.

                    I bought this for my 18 yr. old grandson who is an experienced musician and plays many different instruments. He plays guitar and drums in church worship groups and is a drummer in a touring and recording band. He was pleased with the quality of this cajon and I was pleased with the affordable price!

                            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.

                              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.

                                  This is my first time owning a cajon. it works great for jam sessions and is super portable.

                                    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.

                                        My first time owning a cajon. I was skeptical at first, but this thing is addictive! Lots of fun and sounds great.

                                          I use this cajon for my small band and it works great for jam sessions and small gigs. Great sound and price.
