The quality of the instrument is high and I especially like the rounded corners but the bass is much weaker than I was expecting. It is not as deep and sustaining as the bass on even the basic Sela model (which I have and is half the price), which is unfortunate. For me, the bass is the most important thing. I chose this cajon because it also has clap corners, which are a nice feature. I appreciated being able to build it myself but after all that work, I am now going to have to return it. This is the problem with ordering a cajon before you can play it! Even after watching several comparison videos, I was sure I had chosen the one that would meet my needs. So if its the bass you're after, this is not the one.
Very Nice Quality

I'm brand new to cajons, so I don't have anything to really compare it to, other than briefly messing with a Meinl and LP in a local music shop, but this one does sound good to my novice ears. I'm not hearing the tonal range of videos online of this model, but I'm guessing that's probably me not knowing what I'm doing yet. I'm going to play with adjusting the front plate screws to see how it effects slaps & snare sounds. Anyway, I love the way it sounds with and without the snare inside. Build quality is excellent on this attractive instrument. I ordered it un-assembled but it came finished. I won't complain about that though, as it saved me some time. Your mileage may very (don't count on having my luck in that regard). :)

I have had a more expensive cajon before. Now with the Casela I have a better one in terms of sound and playing possibility. Great product.

This is a versatile instrument with adjustable corners to add or remove snap. It takes about 40 minutes to put together if you have to charge batteries. I use it with no, one, or two snares depending on the situation. Don't be afraid to use bruses or padded mallets. It has the most amazing pitch bend with padded mallets. I also play the back with padded mallets. Watch out for that hole. The Sela Bag is good for carrying the instrument, snares, seat pad, mallets, and three set of brushes with spare room. Padding is medium.
Very Warm and Snappy

Because local stores and the big box music stores don't stock a wide variety of cajons, I spent a lot of time listening to cajons on the web and this one stood out. It sounds better in person and a pick up mike really brings the sound home. The case is worth purchasing too.Opt for the assembly option. For the extra few bucks you can't go wrong. Happily X8 is a rarity in offering many cajon varieties and options.
