OVERVIEW

Easier to reach bass tones, a more balanced sound, and enhanced resonance.

Now that the cajon has become extremely popular, LP designers have set their sights on player comfort, specifically the angle of stroke required to play a cajon. The top, of course, is flat and provides a stable seat, but the critical front panel of this cajon is angled outwards. This allows musicians to easily reach down to play bass tones without having to tilt the cajon. This innovative design promotes longer playing sessions, helps prevent trauma after frequent or long gigs, and also creates a more refined tonal palette.

19"H x 12"W. Top is 12" D and bottom is 17" D.

The LP Angled Cajon also reduces so-called "standing waves" which creates a wider, more balanced frequency spectrum. This principle may account, in part, for the rich bass; distinct, crisp slaps; and warm mid-tones prevalent in the cajon.

Timbres are enhanced by specially chosen hardwoods, carefully butted and held in place by adjustable screws. And a nice touch: generous rubber feet "liberate" frequencies from choking, ensuring that resonant lows, which can equal those of a tumba in the right hands, do not transmit into the floor.

For flamenco ensembles, the LP Angled Cajon is fitted with internal resonating wires for a snare drum-like effect.

Easier and more comfortable to play and richer in frequencies, the LP Angled Surface Cajon is another example of LP taking an old idea and tweaking it to perfection.

    Comments about LP Angled Surface Cajon:

    Have used for 18 monthe twice a week. Sound is great. Mics well with one in the back and front. Slant position is more comfortable for our percussionists. Best we have had to date. Even use it with a modified double pedal... See for youeself. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lrgw6Cex6i8

      Incredible but not without some modification

      By Giacomo

      from Northern Cali

      Comments about LP Angled Surface Cajon:

      Very beautiful instrument, both visually and sonically. But, there's serious flaw to its design. It gets its snare sound from actual snares inside it like on a snare drum. Fine, but only one end of them are secured, resulting in a very unpleasant fretbuzz kind of sound that sustains after each time you hit it. But it can be fixed. Just put a flat piece of cardboard covering most of the snare on the inside and duct tape it very securely all around it. Ends up being one of the nicest sounding cajons I've ever heard: deep, defined bass, sharp, clear highs. Gorgeous.
