Comments about Pearl Jesus Diaz Tri-Tone Cajon:
In the bata position (on its side) and in the Cuban cajon position without the snares, the drum sounds adequate. The high end of the bata has a nice, crisp and woody sound. The low end is adequate but leaves something to be desired in the quality and evenness of the bass note. I was mostly disappointed with the snares. With the snares activated, the drum simply sounds like there is something broken on the inside and it is rattling around. I have fine tuned the snares with the screw used to adjust tension and have been unable to get the drum to sound good. It just sounds broken. Without the option of a quality snare sound, the drum loses the versatility that makes these types of innovative instruments really valuable to a performing musician. I received the drum in a timely manner. The packing job, however, was also disappointing. The drum was only wrapped in a plastic bag inside a box. I know drums are meant to be hit, but the shipping process can be rough and cause damage to wood: and in this case, it did. When I received the drum there was a dent in the rim of the large side. In summary, I don't think Pearl needs to go all the way back to the drawing board, fixing the snares to have a warmer, more shaker-like sound would be a great start. After that, I would definitely re-conceptualize what the bass is supposed to sound like, focusing on making it a more even tone.
