  • Which pickup cajon should I get?

    Posted by Christine Hoffmann on September 17, 2023 at 11:48 pm

    Hi, I would like to buy a pickup cajon for the worship band at my church. It will mostly be used for rock or pop type songs. I’ve never played a snare cajon before, but it think it is a good option. I’m trying to decide between these two:

    MEINL Snarecraft Series Pickup Cajon

    MEINL Woodcraft Series Professional Pickup Cajon

    What is the main difference in sound between these two. I watched Felipe’s video reviewing the Meinl Solea Line Artisian Pickup Cajon, but that one is a bit out of my price range.

    Thank you,

    Hi Christine,

    Both cajons have the same body and pickup system. The main difference is that snarecraft has snare wires and woodcraft has strings. Have a look in my video 12 cajons to listen to flamenco cajons (strings) vs snare cajons (wires). It can be helpful for you.

    Let me know 😉

    Hey! I ended up ordering the snarecraft pickup cajon. I’m looking for that snare “pop”. I’m excited to get it!!!
