I was skeptical that this pedal would be worth the price (it was more than my cajon itself). However, the price is well worth it, if you need a cajon pedal. I tried a used cajon pedal made by another manufacturer; it did not work well. The pedal is going to make cajon drumming a lot easier for me, I've used it to make a small "kit" with a bongo cajon as "snare" and a highhat. It's going to give the band the flexibility to go to a lighter sound for small venues. The sales and service folks were very, very helpful and patient.
