Meinl cajons may look like simple wooden boxes, but don't let that fool you. They're unexpectedly complex, capable of making sounds ranging from bass thumps to lively snare-like effects. With some of their instruments, like the Turbo Slap-Top Cajon, Meinl has managed to expand that acoustical library even further. The bottom line is that if you're looking for a heavy-hitting drum that can do virtually anything, the cajon is a serious contender.
Finding the right cajon for you is just a matter of figuring out what kind of voice you want to get out of it. Looking for something deep and resonant? Try the Bass Cajon with Foot Pedal and Ebony Frontplate or the Meinl Subwoofer Jumbo Bass Cajon. Need a bright, bongo-like tone? Check out the Meinl Snare Bongo Cajon or Professional Bongo Cajon. There's even an option if you want to put yours together by hand: the Meinl Make Your Own Cajon.
Latin percussion is bigger than it's ever been, and its influence is only growing. That's why more and more drummers are including cajons in their kits, and if you've decided that the time is right for you to join them, Meinl cajons are ready to get you there. Whether you're new to the cajon or an experienced player who knows the ins and outs of the instrument, Meinl's selection is sure to impress.
