      Comments about Meinl Trejon:

      I say that the Trejon is awkward because of the width of the drum which requires almost uncomfortable stretching at times. However, if you have pretty good flexibility, the drum will respond with the same amount of tonal flexibility. The three playing surfaces are distinct and even variable based on hand positioning.
      It would definitely need to be mic'd if played with any resounding instruments like brass or piano. The tones are great but can be drowned out (especially the middle bass tone). The snares on either side are very responsive and loud, however I have not found an Easy way to remove the left hand snare like the original listing says is possible. The knob you might see on some pictures or videos does not exist on either side of the drum.
      The build quality feels a bit flimsy. Sturdy enough to sit on for sure but the faceplate seems like it could bow under certain temperature conditions *especially if you choose to loosen the screws for tuning... however, the throne is very comfortable and the slanted front certainly increases the amount of time I could spend playing. More than 2 hours on any cajon will tend to result in back tension.
      Fun to play for sure! (would be inconvenient to carry around especially considering the relatively pricey ONLY available bag *anywhere* for the Trejon)
      I bought the Meinl Foot Tambourine to go with it... adds some nice fills and is easy to use.

        Comments about Meinl Trejon:

        Out of the box I was pleasantly surprised. Solid (and loud) lows, crisp highs (with a variety of them), and a modest but a little skimpy amount of mids (upper middle area).

        The sustain was shorter than I expected, but works well with other instruments in acoustical/electric setups.

        Very stout looking and real head turner.

        Comments about Meinl Trejon:

        This is my 2nd cajon, and I'll never need another one. A GREAT cajon - sounds great, tall enough for a tall person, and with a PA, a set of brushes and a SM57, you can sound like an entire drumset ( sans cymbals). The visual: an audience loves it when they see you playing it.

        Love my Trejon

        By 

        from Buffalo , mn

        Comments about Meinl Trejon:

        I have had my Trejon for 4 months and it sounds great, easy to play, great snare and bass sound. I have the new version with the 2 snares and have not adjusted it all - I am already used to having the snare sound on both sides, but will eventually experiment, as having the tom sound will be an extra over other Cajons - Meinl customer service is great as I has one minor issue that they resolved quickly. If you want an easy to play, versatile drum for small gigs, this is the way to go - lieterally no set up and you can get great rythms and sounds with ease.
