    De Gregorio Yaqui Cajon

I've had a listen on YouTube and sometimes the jingles seem really prominent in the sound and others you can't even hear them - does this mean the jingles are adjustable? If not is there a cajon around the same price...

    Locking in with the bassist (cd/DVDs?)

    Hey, Does anyone know of any CDs or DVDs or book packages that focus on 'locking in' with the bass guitarist? What I'm really looking for I guess, is something that has lots of bass backing tracks to practice to Does anyone know if anything like this exists?

    Roland td 4 and cymbal choking?

    Hi guys, So I received my new Roland td4 kx2 this morning and absolutely love it, but I have noticed that the kit comes with cy12-c and cy-13r pads...which are (to the best of my knowledge) 'chokeable' electronic cymbals.
