      The Sonic Boom Cajon by Pearl is made in America and has tonal impact like no other cajon on the market. The all-birch body and frontplate provide wondrous resonance that speaks clearly through the Sonic Boom Cajon's frontward facing bass port. The bass port is enhanced by a built-in scoop, directing sound and air pressure through the port, emitting a gloriously rich tone.

      A backwards tilted frontplate gives the player a comfortable playing position, eliminating the need to hunch over or rock the cajon backwards to strike the face. This cajon's voice is genuinely unique due to the lack of snares within the cajon, giving it a clear, natural, and earthy tone.

      A massive low-end producer for small acoustic settings or larger amplified venues.

      • Enhanced bass port
      • Birch frontplate and resonant box

      Comments about Pearl Sonic Boom Cajon:

      This cajon is a blast to play. It's large yet portable, boomy yet controllable, and comfortable to play. I've been using it regularly as an alternative to or complement with the djembes and congas I've been lugging around. The cajon is surprisingly subtle and controllable but as boomy as you want to make it. The bass will cut through nicely with the large forward facing sound port. Frankly, I haven't experienced anything quite like it and look forward to coaxing new tones out of it during nightly drumming sessions. The only drawback is it's bulkly and there's no case avaialble for it yet. I recommend transporting it in the original cardboard shipping container, which fits it nicely. Also, there are some gnarly cosmetic imperfections in the wood that don't affect tone. Maybe that's just on my unit but wanted to mention it.
