I recently bought a used Cajon, a Schlagwerk Cajon "la perý". Some scratches and dents but in good condition altogether; the front plate and inner mechanisms are still in mint condition. It's a pretty nice instrument, though I am not the most knowledgeable guy when it comes to cajons or how to play them. The front plate is glued on at the bottom, but screwed with 5 screws at the top. You can tighten them for more bass or loosen them to hear the front plate slap the rest of the construction. I went for something in between, tightening the middle three and having the outer two somewhat loose so I get a good bass and a nice high-pitched slap when I need one. I'm still experimenting on snare tension to get the sound I want, and on how to properly play it of course.
