This cajon features a resonant box and frontplate built from birch wood.
The Meinl Percussion Dual Snare Cajon is equipped with two fixed snare systems that add a crisp "sizzle" effect to your slap tones. The all-birch construction, common for studio acoustic drums, contributes to the attack of the slap tones. The birch construction is also what produces the resonant bass sound that gives you that "boom" tone when you play in the center of the face plate.
This cajon is easy to play and carry. It requires no musical training to begin. Just sit down and have fun. Of course, the light brown finish has the classic Cajon look. The bottom of the Cajon is equipped with no slip rubber feet.

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.
