Meinl Traditional 11-3/4x19-3/4x12" String Cajon Striped Umber
Meinl string cajons feature a system of internal metal strings that come together into two adjustable points to deliver a sizzle effect when striking the front plate. This can be very useful in achieving a crisp sound that enhances bass notes and gives corner hits extra snap. Adjusting the tension of the strings opens up the sound options and varies the sensitivity of the cajon. Slightly tighter strings are great for playing soft finger rolls with ultra-sensitive response.
The striped umber frontplate combined with a rubber wood resonating body come together to develop a deep, resonating bass tone that provides slight punches behind soft notes and deep swells behind harder playing, responding much like a kick drum. This instrument is ideal for softer acoustic gigs when a full drum kit cannot be used.
