Super Knall für die Sambagruppe
Molerin, 11.02.2013
Verwende die Caixa von Meinl in unserer Sambagruppe, da wir neben Timbales, Repiquen und einer normalen Snare noch so einen richtigen schönen lauten Knall haben wollten.

Die Verarbeitung des Kessels ist, wie von Meinl gewohnt, top. Die Kette und die Mechanik sind auch sehr gut verarbeitet, lässt sich auch sehr gut bedienen. Das Gewicht ist gerade für längere Märsche kein Problem, mit dem richtigem Tragesystem bleibt die Caixa wo sie hingehört.

Einziges Manko war das Schlagfell, dass beim 2ten Umzug leider schon den Geist aufgegeben hat. Rimshots sollte das Fell auf jeden Fall aushalten. Ich werde nicht das passende Fell kaufen, sondern ein Powerstroke, da diese Dinger wirkich unverwüstlich sind.

Zum Sound lässt sich sagen, dass die Caixa ordentlich knallt und doch schön aus dem ganzen Samba-Sound zu hören ist. Somit kann man tolle Akzente setzen.

Alles in Allem: Klarer Kauftip!

Après une utilisation
matjoub, 24.04.2018
Caixa de samba reggae, légère et peu profonde.
Bien tendre la peau (une clé est fournie ; les clés de batteries n'étant pas adaptées).
Le son est alors doux, sans besoin de forcer les coups, occupant en continu le fond de la batucada.
Les rim shots sont effectivement sonores.

Globalement la caixa est d'excellente facture.
Petit bémol sur la fixation du timbre, un peu faiblarde et qui semble un peu lâche. Rien qui remettrait en cause l'achat cependant.

PS : penser à l'utiliser avec une sangle adaptée.

Nice and clean meinl caixa
Aury Santos , 03.05.2017
I can start saying it was a nice surprise when i had the first
contact with this meinl instrument...i was looking for a nice and clean sound, when you can get a nice pitch and volume, because i use this istrument on samba ensemble and we usually play on the streets without any amplification device.
I am a brazillian percussionist and i know very well the instruments that we can use on samba, and this caixa have all that you need to make a good impression at any place you play, it is light, well fineshed, great sound with or without net.
Get one now and start to play!

Bonne caixa débutant
Sylvain929, 24.09.2012
Très bon rapport qualité-prix pour cette caixa légère au son agréable (se référer à l'extrait audio très fidèle) et de très bonne facture. Le diamètre fait préférer l'instrument pour des petits gabarits.
