I bought a Schlagwerk Cajon about two years ago and use it in many different bands. For comfort I had also bought a cushion pad from the provider but not a branded one. It didn't seem to make much difference really to the comfort but wasn't sure because I hadn't tried another make. Last year I had left the cushion at a gig and lost it, so this year decided to buy another. Because I was purchasing something from Thomann already I decided to add the Schlagwerk cushion pad as the price was good and the delivery would be free. When I first tried the new pad I noticed a big difference. It grips the cajon well and does not slip as the other had done during a gig. It feels of good quality and des the job well. Sometimes it does curl up when leaning forward on the cajon, but easily settles itself again. When this wears out or I am unfortunate to lose it again, I would purchase the same. Very happy with this.
