OVERVIEW

A compact, lightweight cajon that enables on-the-go play.

The Meinl Jam Cajon is perfect for playing on the go. Its compact design is lightweight and easy to carry to drum circles, unplugged gigs or wherever you want to enjoy playing. The size makes it ideal to grab go for spontaneous jam sessions and has every feature of a standard size Meinl cajon. Crafted in Europe from birch wood, the Jam Cajon has great low end punch when played near the center and dishes out high frequency slaps when striking the top corners.

Two sets of internal fixed snare wires brush against the playing surface to deliver a crisp, sensitive snare effect. The finish lets the beautiful natural wood grain show through, and the hardwood ply construction produces a rich sound that goes with any style music.

    Comments about Meinl Jam Cajon:

    Love Musicians Friends service and user friendly and helpful website. This product came faster than what I expected and looks and sounds great. It was just a little smaller than what I expected, but overall for the price I am very, very pleased.

          This is great for my 4'11" granddaughter. This is not a full size Cajon but enough for a child to sit on and play. Should be the size on the webpage.

            I am a beginner drum and purchased this cajon as an alternative to a kick drum. It sounds great and is very versatile as an alternate drum setup.

                    This is a great portable cajon, it's small and light enough to travel with me wherever I go. I'm a beginner at percussion, but I've found many tutorials on youtube that have given me everything I need to learn to play. The slap sound is adjustable from the front panel with a screwdriver, and the rubber feet keep the cajon and my floors scratch free. Great instrument.

                      I use this in our all acoustic church band and at home for jam sessions. It produces a great sound and very well built.

                        Bought this for my seven year old grandson, who is taking drum lessons. I wanted to help expand his horizons in percussion. I visited after it had arrived, and had a chance to play it, and it was Great! I have the full size Cajon, and thought this mini-jam version would be better suited to him. I kept telling him I might have to take it home with me, he just smiled... He really likes it, and tells me it's fun to play.
