    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.

          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!

            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.

              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.

                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!

                        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.
