Both a flamenco and traditional Peruvian cajon in one box.
The Gon Bops Mixto 2-in-1 Cajon reflects 2 great cajon traditions — that of Spanish flamenco and also that of the Peruvian folk tradition. Having the sound port on the side allows both the front and the back (or the front and the other front) to be used as playing surfaces.
The flamenco side has snare wires while the traditional side does not. The snare side is designed to maximize snare buzz when playing slap tones and minimize buzz when playing bass tones. The traditional side has a partially sealed playing surface for maximum bass and adustment screws on the top for varying the slap sound. The frame is made of Peruvian mohena wood and is constructed with dovetail joints for added strength.
Includes a free cajon bag.
A fusion of 2 great percussion traditions.

Comments about Gon Bops Mixto 2-in-1 Cajon:
I got this specifically to play at an annual Memorial Day party where we have an acoustic jam session / open mic gig. It's mostly 2-3 guitar players and an occasional tune with some keys. We've had some percussion before, but it didn't really provide a true foundation. A kit would be too much. I figured the cajon might be perfect, and I was right. Especially this one. It's got a great natural sound and a beautifully deep bass thump. And the fact that it has the two sides is great. I was constantly flipping it around, using the snares for more rockish tunes and using the plain side for more mellow tunes. Everybody loved the sound this thing puts out. And the fact that it looks like a high-end piece of furniture is the icing on the cake.
I loved this so much that I just bought the Gon Bops Cajon Bongo to go along with it!
