A triangular cajon offering added comfort for upright playing.

Features a wood grain Artisan II finish, this Wede Tri-Side Cajon by Pearl is a three-sided box is designed to provide the most comfortable playing position by having two matching striking plates that are easily played by each hand while sitting in an upright position. No longer must the player hunch over to have both hands play on the same surface.

The cajon is of fiberglass construction and is equipped with a set of fixed-snares, giving a crisp timbre to this revolutionary cajon. The larger, rounded backside of the cajon serves as a deep resonance chamber and has a built-in bass port, enhancing the subsonic frequencies for a dynamic low-end sonority.

  • Innovative three-sided design
  • Fiberglass frontplate and resonant box
  • Fixed snares

Comments about Pearl The Wedge Tri Side Cajon:

I played one of these in a store and was really impressed, so I ordered one later when I found it used. Now that I have it I'm not as convinced that it is the drum for me. The pros are that the triangle shape is actually quite comfortable to play--the hand positions feel more natural and there are several options for how to sit and play, nice for mixing it up on a long gig. The sound is both a pro and con. What I liked so much about it in the store was that the snare sound is super crisp, and even in the noisy environment of a big music store, it really stood out. Between the fiberglass tapas and four separate sets of snares (two on each tapa), it has a crisp, sharp, authentic snare sound. The downside is that that is pretty much all it has. You won't find much of a warm tone anywhere on this drum, so there's no conga or djembe-like voice for variety and you can't disengage the snares. The bass end has a good enough presence, but it is the snare sound makes it really unique and stand out. I haven't played it in a situation where it is miked up yet so I can't comment on how that might change things. One of the downsides I expect is that it will now likely require that I use three mics on it live--one in the sound hole and one on each of the two playing surfaces--rather than two. And if you have any add-on cajon instruments (like a Schlagwerk Heck Stick or Side Kick), you probably can't use them on this because of the wedge design. Bottom line--it is well made and feels solid and is a pleasure to play. So if you want a cutting snare sound, this might be the drum for you. If you like a little warmth and some additional voices, maybe not the best choice. I am going to be tempted to add another drum (perhaps a small djembe) into the set-up when I gig with this.
