OVERVIEW

A handcrafted beauty ideal for flamenco and world music.

The cajon is a truly amazing instrument. Ostensibly a wooden box, the cajon is much more, providing many striking areas and "sweet spots" and a range of tones from snappy highs to resonant lows. When constructed meticulously and placed in the hands of a capable percussionist, the cajon can open up a variety of pitches and timbres, complementing flamenco and various Latin genres.

The LP Cajon by Mario Cortes is constructed from specially selected birch pieces. Birch is a wood admirably suited to cajons owing to its emphasis on clean highs and natural low end, both obtainable without excessive player effort. Instruments constructed of Finnish birch are often termed "naturally EQ-ed" and this attribute of the Mario Cortes Cajon will surely augment LP's reputation as manufacturer of the most recorded cajons in the history of flamenco, fusion, and world music.

Handmade in Spain and individually tested, the LP Cajon by Mario Cortes features a construction system so unique it is patented. All joints are dove-tailed rather than simply butted. Internal wire snare strands add high end sizzle to the conga-like highs and lows emitted by this premium instrument.

Designed by Mario Cortes, renowned flamenco guitarist and instrument maker, the LP Cajon by Mario Cortes is a natural fit in all flamenco inspired and world music ensembles. It speaks in rich tones, with the right balance of attack and resonance and, thus, is bound to be a highly sought after instrument.

    Comments about LP Mario Cortes Cajon:

    I have had this cajon for almost a decade, and had "retired" it for a few years. I am now playing in an acoustic trio, and I use this with great results for the tunes that are not conga appropriate, mostly blues and some other tunes. Also great sound for shuffles, and anything requiring more of a kit sound. This cajon is really well made and the tonality is perfect for my ears. Can't say enough good things about it.

    Worth every penny

    By Phoenix_4650

    Comments about LP Mario Cortes Cajon:

    The bass tones from this cajon are solid, the slaps crack, and overall the sound fits in many settings, from acoustic sets to middle eastern rhythms. The slightly rounded top front edge is a welcome touch. It's more expensive than some, but worth every penny. I've been actively using it for about a year, and it shows no signs of wearing down. Buy it.

    amazing!

    By smalltownmusician

    Comments about LP Mario Cortes Cajon:

    I got this as a christmas present last year after putting in a request. Its simply amazing! Its the first "percussion" instrument I've added to my drummimg arsenal. I have to be honest, it has actually improved my overall drumming. I'm in a two person folk band currently and dabbling in all sort of different sounds, and I have to say, this is perfect for anything with an acoustic guitar.

    Comments about LP Mario Cortes Cajon:

    When properly mic'ed up, this is one of the best sounding cajons you can buy. If you plan on playing completely acoustic (no microphones or PA), I'd probably recommend going with the Meinl, as they seem to project a bit better. But if you are going to be running through a PA, get the LP Mario Cortes cajon. The range of sound you can get out of it is incredible.

    Beat Box

    By Kajundrummer

    from Slidell La.

    Comments about LP Mario Cortes Cajon:

    This little box is amazing. Great for acoustic set ups with out all the hassal of toting the drumset. I can do many beats almost like a drum set with out all the cymbles, but add a shaker to your foot like a hi-hat and you can rap out some realy nice grooves. I love the craftsmanship of this instrument. if you Love being a percussionist you need to get one.

    Solid buy!!

    By drumdude84

    from virginia

    Comments about LP Mario Cortes Cajon:

    Got this drum used from a drummer that lived in my area and was definitely impressed with the tone and sturdy construction of this cajon. I played another Meinl cajon before this one, and was convinced the LP cajon blew it out of the water. So much more tone, the bass is deeper, but unfortunately the snare strings are not adjustable. But that was fine with me since they sound great where they are tuned right now. Buy this and you won't be dissappointed.
