    Nativo Oak Cajon Drum 8 String Snare PRO PLUS Series PROPL-PETRA-II

    Hi everyone

    Can anyone shed some light or advice on the above model of cajon? I am still a beginner but I feel like I’m getting a little better and I am looking for a different cajon for a different sound to the one I have which is just a basic 4 string gear4 music one. If anyone has any advice for a next level cajon then I’d like to hear please. Thanks for reading. Happy cajoning 🙌

    Hi Anthony.

    I started with a gear 4 music cajon. They are brilliant for the price and you get a case too.

    After about a year I went for the top of the range Cruz cajon from Cajonbox by Heidi Joubert. I love it. It is beautiful and the sound is amazing. It is very responsive with a large range of tones from the different areas of the cajon face and sides. It is also tuneable.

    I also have a Meinl digital cajon for silent practice, which I would say is ok, but I prefer acoustic. It is good for learning grooves and recording but it is very different in technique and range of sounds.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks Denise. The digital one may be a good option also as I live in high Rise flats and the noise does the neighbours heads in sometimes. I have heard the sound off of them as well and it dosent really sound great if I’m honest but if they’re good for that then I will give that a go. Thanks for the help, I appreciate it. Happy cajoning
