    Hi everyone, I’m looking for advice on tuning my cajon. I’ve been playing it a lot recently but I’m getting a noise from the snare like the strings inside are loose, so I’ve been trying to get the sound back to what I know is right but I’m having no luck. I’ve adjusted the Alan key one way and the other and trying to tape inside it also, am i on the right path to getting my sound back? Any advice welcome.

    Thanks Felipe. Sorry for the very late reply. I’m still getting used to how the website works. I just have a basic 4 string cajon from gears 4 music, its a shop in Glasgow. With 2 strings in either side of the cajon. The video helped a lot though. I just need to get the sound how I want it really then, that’s what I’ll be doing. Thanks for the advice and I’m loving the courses so far. Even though I haven’t practiced as often as I’d like to recently but they are helping me out for sure.
