I was looking at different types of cajons on the web and I saw this Slaptop cajon. Right away, I have asked Meinl to send me one to test and today I’m gonna show you why this cajon can be interesting for a lot of people.
The model I’m reviewing today is the Meinl Turbo Slaptop Cajon.
This is so much fun to play! It’s an interesting instrument because you have 3 very different sounds,
Starting with the bass sound right on the middle of the instrument, it’s very cool and I like the sustain of it! It reminds the Subwoofer cajon I’ve reviewed not long ago. I think because of the sound port in the front and the walnut playing surface that gives a similar warm sound.
The snare played on the sides its great, very cool smack sound and what impressed me the most is the sound separation, when you play the snare you don’t have any bass sound and when you play a bass sound there is not snare buzz on it.
The mid tone sound like a bongo or conga, It’s very cool to play fills and fast rolls and It also gives a very nice option to improvise.
It’s very comfortable to have the Slaptop Cajon on the lap, especially with the rubber pads in both sides.
The design is cool and the playing surface made of Walnut wood looks very nice.
Overall, I think is great! Sound wise I’m not going to say that it replace the actual cajon or the full size cajon but I think it can be played with the same technique.
I think is good value for money
This Cajon costs $139 in the US and 129€ in Europe.
