This is a SWEET LITTLE BOX with nice tones! I took it to one of my open mic jams on the weekend and got a kick out of how everyone kept fighting to play on it. Light, portable, good adjustable snare, fun to play in an acoustic setting (but even though the guitars, bass and singers were amped, the cajon sound projected great). If you're looking for a deep bass tone this won't do it but with different hits you can coax an amazing variety of sounds from this baby. I used a djembe for the low tones and rocked the bubinga on my lap for everything else. Although the box has tiny rubber button feet I went to a hardware store and got some larger ones to keep it from slipping off my lap. You can also hold it between your knees, bongo style, but again may need to put a couple of rubber feet on the outside edges. (This isn't my main performing cajon but is a LOT of fun for pickup playing, jams, easy rehearsals, etc.) Be sure to check out Tycoon as a company, employer and responsible steward of the environment -- you will be pleasantly surprised. [I just bought a set of their bongos as a gift and have played on their awesome ashikos.]
