Comments about Meinl Turbo Slap-Top Cajon:

I got this to play at church with the band in a small sanctuary where stage drums were just too loud. This works perfect and sounds really good. I love that I can change the tones to make it sound awesome no matter what we are playing. It's so easy to travel with and carry around as it takes up no space. I am really enjoying these and can't wait to get a mic to make these sound even better.

      Comments about Meinl Turbo Slap-Top Cajon:

      I'm very happy with this product! I love the sound and versatility of Cajons but never really found them to be very comfortable. This Cajon is fantastic because it allows you to sit on your favorite drum stool while playing! Not to mention your playing area is far greater because there is nothing getting in the way of your playing surface!

      Comments about Meinl Turbo Slap-Top Cajon:

      really enjoy playing cajon along with others playing a box guitar. easy to carry around, can play lap style or tilt it long ways between legs. the more you play it the more you get use to location of different sounds. really great when amplified with mics. I enjoy this lap style verse the sit on style. can''t go a day without playing it if only for 15 minutes.

        I'm glad I broke down and bought one of these. Played traditional cajon for years and and may play this one more. Nice size, comfortable, 3 great tones on top. Looking forward to letting others try it out.
        I think there's room in the line for a really nice all wood version.

          This is a blessing. I can play along with the team and stay out of the way. The sound can be loud or louder when mic'd...love it.

              Comments about Meinl Turbo Slap-Top Cajon:

              I found myself in a position where I needed either a Cajon or a Djembe and wasn't thrilled at the prospect of either. After some searching, I stumbled upon the Meinl Turbo-Slap Top Cajon, watched the video and read the reviews and my quest was over! Comfortable to play and the high end slap is fantastic (could use a little more bottom but that can be remedied with a mic). Highly recommended!

                  Comments about Turbo Slap-Top Cajon:

                  I tried the other slap-top cajon (with the single sound-hole) at the store and it really wasn't too impressive but had a nice feel being played from the top. I ordered this one instead after noticing the three sound-holes and reading about how it has snares on both sides. I play at a bi-weekly group open mic and wanted to shift from strings more into percussion. This cajon has a perfect volume range to play alongside a dozen guitar or just a single one. Also, great tones to it and a very responsive playing surface. Just watch the demonstration videos for hand and finger techniques.
