Do not buy.

Comments about Meinl Pickup Cajon with Makah-Burl Frontplate:

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.

      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.

      Pick-up is not useable

      Comments about Meinl Pickup Cajon with Makah-Burl Frontplate:

      The built in mic and pre-amp produce an unusable signal. No matter how you try to EQ, the pick-up sounds horrible.

        This is my husband's first cajon and he loved it!! He has played drums and he even has a jug that he played. This is his favorite by far.
