Watch Video Demonstration of this Cajon
This Cajon delivers a classic sound that can be used in Flamenco and world music. A musician can use this singular lightweight box drum to create as many sounds as a full drum set, and by adjusting the top corners you can further expand sound options.
Listen to this cajon:
The full range of sounds that the Cajon can create are produced by adjusting not only the top corners that affect the timbre and crash, but by changing tension put onto wires inside the box drum. The nylon guitar strings located against the frontplate control the amount of sizzle heard during a performance. The cajon player can even disable the sizzle completely.
Complete with anti-slipping seating surface and matte finish, the Meinl Headliner Series Cajon is an easily transported distinctive instrument for all percussionists.
This distinctive instrument, with its simple or full drum set sound capabilities, will assist the consummate musician in creating music like other Cajon using artists including Eric Clapton and the Gipsy Kings.

nice cajon. represented accurately in the video, so if you're looking for that sound... this works great. If you're imagining a different sound, might be best to search the other videos. I'm impressed with the integrity of X8 drums, so find the video on the product page that has the 'sound' you're looking for. Orderwise, it'll probably be seamless... X8 drums is a positive shopping experience!
