Had this for a few days now, think I'm getting familiar with it. The bottom end is nice, different techniques can get you a nice ringing bass sound or a solid thump. Snares produce a nice large marching snare drum sound, though are a little sensitive even when playing on the corners. Hard to get a good 'snap' sound (corners are flush with the frame, unlike some other cajons) but that might just be my technique. No way to turn off snares, so you're not going to get any kind of good conga-ish sound from it. Overall, even without the jingles, for my taste it was the best sounding cajon in its price range.
