Meinl World Percussion
If you're looking for a fun, versatile percussive instrument on a budget, you could always make your own with the Meinl Make Your Own Cajon kit. The cajon is a simple, box-shaped instrument from Peru that you can slap with your hands or even brushes and sticks to create different sounds. This kit makes owning a cajon accessible and has the added bonus of giving you a fun project to work on alone or with friends and family.
Someone looking to add a bit of worldly spice to their existing setup will want something that easily integrates with their kit, like the Meinl Foot Cabasa. This adaptation of the traditional African instrument can be played just like a kick pedal to add a unique feel to any rhythm. It can even be set for single or double strokes for ultimate versatility.
For laying down a rhythm, wherever you are, it's hard to beat the Meinl Headliner Congo Series Rope Tunes Djembe. Carved from a solid piece of mahogany and featuring a hand-selected goat skin head, this djembe delivers a deep, full, authentic sound. It even has PP nylon ropes to create the traditional Mali Weave tuning system, so you can easily stay in tune during all your jam sessions.
With so many options for drums, shakers, chimes and more, you're sure to find the perfect instrument for you. From learning how to keep a beat to recreating the traditional music of a culture or even creating your own unique sound, the selection of world percussion Meinl has to offer can add new energy and exciting tones to your percussive playing.
