I play mainly the drums and bought this as a versatile option in my percussion arsenal. It is a great instrument with a lot of possibilities and a good alternative for smaller venues, pocket shows or acoustic set ups, etc.
I played in other cajons before and I can safely say that , the craftsmanship in this instrument and overall sound is a lot better than the other Brands.
I had a lot of compliments on the sound while auditioning with it and also while playing in venues.
The snare inside has a subtle bell, which gives it a nice sound. It can be adjusted or also muted if you want a more traditional cajon sound. The bass is very good for the size, overall you get a velvety and clear definition of mids and bass. Good bass sound in the middle if you play with the palm staccato.
I played live and used a Shure Beta 52 on the hole at the back and a Shure sm57 at the front and it sounded very, very good in the PA
The sound is improving with time which is also good news. In this price bracket you cannot go wrong with this . Also bought a Millenium Classic Cajon Bag to keep it safe, very happy with Thomann?s impeccable service, the products arrived very quickly and very well packed.
