Comments about Meinl Birch Headliner Cajon:

The build is solid and the tone of the wood is really nice. The snares only cover the center of the drum and aren't adjustable so the bass is a bit buzzy and the edges have no snare sound at all. Good snap but no snare.

It works really well with brushes. I started using my wire brushes they bring out the tone a lot more and, even though there's no snare on the edge, the brushes give a slight snare sound. I usually play with them pulled out about halfway.

Overall, I wish I had gone with the upgraded version with the adjustable snares. But for a first cajon or budget cajon it's not a bad product. Just takes a little creativity to get the right sound out of it.
