  • Cajon Suggestions

    Anyone have opinions on a good cajon obtainable in the US? I'm somewhat unimpressed by the Meinl models at Guitar Center.

    If you don't know what a cajon is:

    Do you know what level of Meinls you were playing? I've been very impressed with their higher end stuff (~$175 and up). If they're really not floating your boat, check out Mountain Rythym - they make some awesome drums!

      We play an LP Cajon at our church. Really nice sound to it. See here my Sunday Setlist from May 31 2010 -- Sunday SetList (May 31, 2010) Life with Jding

        efrisch: I think I tried out the $99 models. What I didn't like with what I tried was that the "snare" sizzle was pronounced no matter where I struck the cajon. I want good snare/bass separation.

          Yeah, I think you'd definitely benefit from one of the better ones... they have adjustable wires that can be set at different tensions or turned off like regular snare wires. It's just a much cleaner system than the one used on the $99 (and most other brand's low end models - I've tried the LP Aspire and it's really nasty)

              I find this thread interesting. The cajon seems to go well with an all acoustic set. The first time I saw one being used was a church that I don't frequent but I was amazed by the sound and attitude of the cajon. I am considering adding one to our church team.
