This cajon is built solid but a couple of things needed attention. It has guitar tunners mounted in it for the snare wires which is convienient but the wires were way harsh no matter how ya tried to tune it, a little tape cleaned it up for that nice snare sound. The other thing is the tunning screws on the front plate were screwed right into the front plate instead of a predrilled hole so the screw only went into the main box, once again, a little attention cleaning the holes out allowed the front plate to float to get the sound needed by tighting or loosening the screws.After said work being done it has great sound and feel, especially mic'd up.

OK

It didn't matter how we adjusted the tuning screws for the strings inside, it never sounded right. We had to use duct tape to muffle the strings sounds. It's a decent sound now. ...Read complete review

      Comments about Pearl Primero Wood Box Cajon:

      I played at a club for 5 hours and the hands were pretty sore. We mic'd the back and it produced really nice bass that created a good beat for two acoustic guitars. Next time I will mic the front since I had to hit hard to produce loud enough snare. Hopefully the hands will not be sore next time. Front developed small crack after first gig. Hopefully not a huge issue for sound and i'm hoping it doesn't continue to grow. It could be from the cold/dry climate here in Michigan :/

      primero cajon

      By Community User

      from Reading PA

      Comments about Pearl Primero Wood Box Cajon:

      Good started instrument, but I will probably upgrade in a year or two. Plain, sounds just fine, and works. Isn't that how most instruments should be?
      Nothing fancy here. It is solid and durable, I haul it from gig to gig with out a fancy pants bag with hardly a dent. I don't notice much effect from losening the snares, unless they are pretty much all the way off. The velcro dampener inside is a cinch to use. The bass is nice and thick, and the snare is nice and tight. Sounds comparable to some much more expensive Meinls, at least what I can tell from watching their promotional youtube videos.
      better than average, as I find most pearl products to be. Not much craftsmanship in this piece, must have been mass produced in some factory in Asia.
      great value. wonderful addition for any percussionist for just a hnadful of bucks. paid for itself after the second gig.

      Great cajon

      By Hector Cruz

      from Washington

      Comments about Pearl Primero Wood Box Cajon:

      Easy to play right out of the box. It is easy to tune. The low tones are excellent! Snare sounds great too. The color looks very nice; the cajon fits very well in our living room.
