Have had it for less than a month

I was hoping for more variation in tonal sounds, Seems either the rather harsh front or the good sounding body but not many options for high and low notes.

If the wire set up was of two different sizes that would provide some options - a sharper cutting side and a lower, thunkier base side.

Well-made, attractive instrument

The Kala spalted maple cajon is a well made and attractive instrument. I'm finding the snare strings to overpower the richer wood-thumping rhythm tones, so I have found myself stuffing deadening material behind the guitar strings inside the cajon to reduce their contribution to the overall sound. Sure would be nice if there was an easier way to dial-in the desired tone, but overall I'm very pleased with my purchase.
