The Meinl Cajon kit combines the fascination and fun of creating your own Cajon, which is one of the world's most popular percussion instruments. Meinl provides high quality birch wood, which is known for producing the dry Cajon sound, so that you can produce the best possible sound. The big advantage of the Meinl kit is that you can make the percussion instrument to suit your own individual style, as you can paint it any colour you wish. Simply get yourself some oil, lacquer, wax, or paint, then unlock your creativity.
The Cajon is the perfect tool for both drum professionals, and those who wish to explore their sense of rhythm. Due to the individual design of this instrument, the sounds from the Cajon can be varied via the supplied snare wire, which runs through the striking plate. There are also options using tools such as snare wire segments, metal tongue compartments and spiral wires to give a varied sound. All react differently to the oscillations of the striking plate.
The Meinl Cajon is designed to be sat on, with the "front" of the instrument between the player's legs. The higher snare tone is produced by striking the upper edge of the box, while the deep bass tone is produced on the lid. Some Cajon players dampen the sound with their heel against the cover, which modulates the snare sound. Cajon players can vary the sound by using their bodies, varying the impact, and by using the snare effect. In addition, this Cajon is sufficiently large to produce a very deep bass sound below the first resonance by adjusting the dimensions of the sound hole.
