The Cajon kit from Meinl combines the fascination and fun of
putting together and creating your very own instrument, as well as the ability
to play the first Bongo Cajon in the world. Meinl have delivered a high-quality
birch wood that is known for the dry Cajon sound and is right at home in the
world of acoustic music. The advantage of this Meinl kit is that you can tailor
the colour your percussion instrument to your own desires. You can choose from
oil, lacquer, wax or any colour and let your creativity run wild.
This instrument is perfect for both professionals and
beginners looking to explore and develop their rhythmic feel. Thanks to the
individual design of this percussion instrument, you can vary the sounds
created by the Cajon box.
With the Cajon, that is placed on its narrow side, is sat on
by the player, the percussionist has the top of the box, i.e. the front side,
between their legs. High tones can be played on the uppermost edge of the box,
while bass tones are played lower on the front side. Most Cajoneros dampen the
front side with their heel to modulate the higher tones. Cajones deliver a very
interesting sound that stems from the body material, size and playing surface.
In addition, this large Cajon delivers a very low bass tone below its
fundamental resonant frequencies. With the relevant dimensioning of the sound
hole, this bass tone can be very powerful.
