The cajon that's ready for the big gigs, with built-in electronics.

The Meinl Pickup Cajons are equipped with the DST pickup microphone and the A1.2 preamp system with volume control from B-Band. This active system includes a specially designed preamp, high-quality endpin output jack, and a durable battery. The structure is light in mass, adding very little weight to the instrument. The sound reproduction is amazingly pure and clear. This installed microphone system provides comfortable and easy handling in live situations. Comes with a built-in sizzle effect. Plug in and play.

      Comments about Meinl Pickup Cajon with Makah-Burl Frontplate:

      Due to the other review of this model I gave some thought to the idea of getting this Meinl cajon with the active PU or not. The extra cost was a detriment. In the end, it was a decision between carrying around a mic, stand, and cable, or not. Also I do not have them to spare and buying a Sure 57 mic, cable and stand is the approx. cost of the pickup model. Plus using an external mic means no volume control at the box either. Of course I am assuming the pickup will replicate sound as true as the Sure 57.

      The Cajon itself is not bad, but I cant believe they actually charge more for the pickup version. The pickup is very low quality and useless, I cant believe they manufactured and sent it out for sale like this. If you like the Cajon buy the one without the pickup and save your safe some money.
