OVERVIEW

With a modest price tag, the rich payoff of the LP Aspire Cajon is in solid bass tones.

This LP Aspire Accents cajon has a front ply hardwood playing surface with a solid hardwood body. Its large rubber feet keep it in place while you're pounding out those tasty beats.

The LP Aspire cajon gains its emphatic bottom-end from a solid hardwood body, constructed from woods chosen for their resonant properties. The interior houses a set of wire snares for those authentic flamenco trills and the durable hardwood front panel is adjustable with varying screw tension. The internal snare wires are easily accessed and adjusted, as is the front panel.

The height is a convenient 17-1/4", comfortable for all players, while the width is 12" for ample resonance. To ensure that bass tones are not grounded into hardwood or otherwise non-carpeted floors, the LP Aspire cajon drum is fitted with large rubber feet.

Priced well and constructed sturdily, the Latin Percussion cajon is the perfect hand drum to introduce students, hobbyists, and even working club musicians to one of the hottest percussion instruments on the planet.

FEATURES
  • Solid hardwood body
  • Wire snares
  • Durable hardwood front panel, adjustable with varying screw tensions

LP means quality, Aspire means it's affordable, and Accents means it looks cool. Order now.

      Comments about LP Aspire Accents Cajon:

      I did some research before buying my own cajon. I played a Meinl Headliner snare cajon for 3 years for our church worship, "unplugged" and double mic'd. The LP Aspire Accents cajon has very little "buzz" when playing bass tones and is more responsive than other cajons I have played. I especially like the multiple rows of snare wires in their own section at the inside top of the cajon. The only drawback in my opinion is that the snare cannot be adjusted or turned off but I found that the back of the cajon has a nice sound if you switch it up between songs.

        Comments about LP Aspire Accents Cajon:

        This cajon has a great sound!

        I really wanted a cajon to replace lugging my drumset around for small gigs where the whole cymbals/mutilple toms setup was unnecessary. However, I mostly bought this for playing in church. I went to Guitar Center set on buying a Meinl, but after trying them all out I went with this one. It had a much deeper bass and better snare "pop". I like that it has actual snares rather than the two strings like Meinl has. It has been super fun to play. I always thought the LP Aspire line in all their instruments was "cheap" but this cajon has definitely proven me wrong. It gets a great sound and is really versatile.

        Comments about LP Aspire Accents Cajon:

        I've been playing guitar and drums for about 20 years, and have heard about a Cajon since I saw one played on stage about 4 years ago. Needless to say, I wanted one. After looking at the options and reading the reviews, I chose this one because so many people said that the tone was really great. One can fix a lot of things in an instrument, but tone is not one of them. It either has it or it doesn't. The tone IS great, but the "snare" sound cannot be distinguished from the bass tone, which makes the bass tone a bit muddy. I would still recommend it, but I would possibly look at some other options, or at least try it in the store before you buy to ensure that you are getting the sound that you want.

              I bought this Cajon based on the reviews I read and they were pretty accurate. Very pleased. Great bottom tone and snare crack, used it for a recording and it sounded a lot like a full set minus cymbals. I guess the only drawback is the snare isn't adjustable.

                Comments about LP Aspire Accents Cajon:

                Just picked up one of these Cajon's this week. I went to my local Guitar Center and banged on every Cajon they had in stock. This was by far the best of them all including several that were much more expensive. This one does not have the option of disengaging the snares but you don't really need it. The snares are attached to the top section only so it is the only area where you get the snare sound. The lower part has killer bass tones with no snare rattle to deal with. This is my first Cajon but I have played on many others and this one beats them all. I play in a blues/rock band but we also do acoustic shows which is what I intend to use the Cajon for. I'll be playing it at a live show next weekend and I can't wait to see how it sounds in the mix. If you are in the market for a Cajon this is definitely the way to go.

                  Comments about LP Aspire Accents Cajon:

                  I was really unsure on what cajon I was going to purchase . I decided I would go for the LP aspire accents. I new Lp was the leader in quality in percussions and the colors were just wonderful. When I opened the box and seen my cajon it was stunning. I took it out and began to play . The response was awesome and the bass tones were killer. With a little tuning looking on utube, I even got a better sound. Then researching more I seen that they sell a port hole ring for these. I put that on in two minutes, and the bass was incredible and the highs were still nice and sharp. I have tried other cajons and this sounds as good and even better than those very high priced ones.... Go LP ! you can't go wrong on this one...

                  This drum sounds like a drum kit in a box. Sounds great on my digital recorder! Great for jamming if you don't have a full drum kit and drummer. We are thinking of playing some gigs with it. Once you mic the drum it sounds awesome on a PA.

                  I bought this Cajon because I needed an alternative to lugging my trap set everywhere. I have had it for just over a year now and I must say, I am very satisfied with it. I play this thing ALOT and I don't hold back. This Cajon takes everything I can throw at it and still sounds and looks beautiful. Definitely well worth the money for this one.

                  Tried several cajons, this one out for price/performance and was superior to a popular competitor

                  from canada

                  Comments about LP Aspire Accents Cajon:

                  for the money this won out. in store I tried it, meinl headliner, and two $300 cajons. headliner was nasty sounding (snares were rattly and loose despite being tightened by me and the salesman, bass was thin and high pitched despite brief attempt to tune it lower). one $300 model was much deeper in bass than all the rest and would have won out if I'd had $300 to spend. other $300 model and this lp aspire accent, once the accent was properly tuned by the salesman and myself in the store, were pretty similar sounding and feeling, and the aspire looks much nicer.

                  A pro sounding unit for entry level money and none of the nasty snare sound of the headliner. I've heard headliners sound good and bad on youtube, but this was in a different league and I thought I wouldnt' be able to afford something that sounded, and looked, this good.

                  I bought it!
                  uses screwdriver for all adjustments, not included. no snare adjuster on side (on/off) like pricier models have. but the features it does include work very well indeed.
                  very good but plywood front that I would imagine is different in the pricier models. feels good and solid, but obviously not in the same league as the pro models and I doubt it will last as well. thin woods, but solid feeling for sure right now.
                  better by far sounding and looking than the #1 entry level model in the store, the meinl headliner.

                  if you want a meinl, check these out too, it might be more what you're looking for if you are worried about rough sounding loose snare rattles and want good solid deep bass resonance without a bunch of crunchy snare sound from the bass.
