I got this because of the range of sounds, the bass is fat, and the snare is snappy. They was a rattle in the bass though but just chucked a few pieces of hockey tape on the wires where they were loose in so many people have been telling me it's the best Cajon they've heard. The very thin and light design allows for resonance in the bass.

I have owned this for nearly a year and used it in many different settings, both mic'd and not. A boomy, warm, loose sound, which is what attracted me to it. Very different from more traditional flamenco sounding cajons. I get asked about it and complimented on its sound frequently. It is VERY lightweight, which makes it great for hauling around. It's weight makes you think it might be fragile, but I have seen no sign of this whatsoever after a lot of use.

First let me say this is my first review of any product. I did a lot of research before buying this Cajon and this is the first one I have owned. Overall, this is an outstanding Cajon at a great price. Pros and Cons are as follows: Pros: - Nice high pitch snare sound (Uses guitar strings on the entire inside face) - Very good low sound - Excellent design - Excellent difference in sound between the slap and hitting just below the edge - Cajon bag is a great extra - Designed for Daniel de Los Reyes and is therefore excellent for country/folk/rock and any other traditional music you want to play Cons - Not built for very heavy players (It is light and uses a post inside to add extra stability) - Snare sound cannot be turned off - Snares can be heard on the base notes if you do not dampen the face (Many traditional Cajons are built this way. If this is not what you want, I recommend the Alex Acuna Series Special by Gon Bops. The sound is not as warm but the snares are only on the top corners) I gave the DDLR Cajon a 4.5 for quality due to its light weight being a limiting factor for very heavy players. Honestly, if it was heavier it would not have the same sound and for me the sound is everything. This is a Cajon that I would feel comfortable taking on stage at a great price!
