Meinl String Cajon - Black Makah Burl w/ Free Bongo Cajon
Included with purchase:
The Black Makah-Burl String Cajon features a Makah-Burl frontplate with a resonating body made of rubber wood. Like Meinl's other cajon designs, the string cajon has adjustable top corners to control the amount of crash emitted by your instrument.
Tightening the screws will muffle the noise, whereas loosening the screws strengthens the crash String cajons have vinyl wires spanning the inside of the frontplate, which creates the traditional "sizzle" effect. Drummers can regulate the tension of the metal wires, which changes the strength of the sizzle. The vibration of these strings delivers a rattle that sounds both crisp and dry. The innovative integrated string mute system used by the Meinl cajons provides for consistent sound and easy adjustments.
Meinl cajons have great projection and attractive frontplates, ensuring that your cajon will be the best looking in the band. In no time at all, you'll be moving up to the ranks of Norah Jones, Seth Lakeman, and The Coronas, who have all begun using the cajon in the recording of their latest albums.

This is my second Meinl Cajon (wore the first one out!). Arrived in great shape, but I used the free shipping and it took over a week to get it (it was "awaiting shipment" for 5 days). They also goofed on my order a bit, I got some extras I didn't pay for along with the bongo.....ooops

This combo deal is maximum value for the buck - the Meinl Bongo Cajon is a quality instrument, built to last and perfect for an old guy just learning to play. The Meinl String Cajon seems to be of equal quality with a fine bass sound, adjustable "rattle" and slap sounds. Both items were extremely well packaged guaranteeing their arrival in fine shape. In addition to the amazing initial price, I received a 10% rebate thru X8's partnership with Social Rebate and both companies proved to be VERY responsive and helpful. Don't hesitate to do business with X8 Drums; they are first rate.
Amazing drums, great price!

The Meinl Cajon is GORGEOUS and plays awesome! I also got the free bongo cajon. It is a cool sound (I've never had one before) and it is fun to play. I am very satisfied with my purchase.

A decent sounding cajon and a great bongo together for an economical price. I couldn't be happier. Now if only I can get it away from hubby so I can practice, which makes having the bongo a very good thing! If you're on the fence, I wouldn't hesitate. Also very quick shipping and packed well.
