OVERVIEW

Provides a great feel and rhythmic foundation to any musical situation.

Meinl maintains the authenticity and quality of their cajons by making them completely by hand from beginning to end. The Meinl Siam Oak Snare Cajon with Ebony Frontplate is capable of a wide range of sounds. From an unplugged acoustic session, to a small gig, to improvising rhythms, this cajon has superior quality and flexibility. Cajons originated in Afro-Cuban and Afro-Peruvian cultures. In the 19th century, the slaves were not allowed to have drums and so they began to make music using wooden shipping crates. From its modest beginnings, the cajon has risen to a place of prominence in Cuban and Peruvian culture. In Peru it is one of the instruments in the œcreole waltz along with numerous other popular songs. Cajons were introduced to flamenco by Paco de Lucia. Previously, most flamenco rhythms were made by striking the guitar. When Paco de Lucia saw and heard the cajon at a dinner at the Spanish Embassy in Lima, Peru, he was taken with the instrument™s capabilities. He asked his former percussionist Ruben Danta to play a popular flamenco rhythm on the cajon. Incredibly pleased with its sound, he brought the cajon back with him to Spain. From there it found a quick home in flamenco music and as a result spread to a great range of musical styles worldwide. Typically cajons are played by sitting atop the instrument and slightly leaning back while striking the frontplate with bare hands. Different sounds can be achieved by using the feet or incorporating brushes or sticks. Some drummers even choose to use a cajon in place of a throne and incorporate its rhythms with the rest of their drum set. To effectively produce outstanding flamenco music, the Meinl Siam Oak Snare Cajon with Ebony Frontplate has full adjustable snare wires. The wires are attached to the frontplate and can be adjusted by turning a knurled knob. This easy method of adjustment is a Meinl innovation and offers the player incredible control. There is also the option to completely turn the snares off on this cajon. The Meinl Siam Oak Snare Cajon with Ebony Frontplate is a versatile, fun to play, resonant instrument that makes a great addition to any style of music.
