This deceptively simple-looking box produces a world of sounds.
LP is proud to present the LP Cajon, a latin percussion instrument graced with an exotic "Takean Tong" wood playing surface.
The cajon is extremely popular and for good reason. The square box drum offers delightful tones, sometimes muted and sometimes open. A cajon simulates an astounding range of percussion instruments when played with hand slaps, deep palm "dooms" and sizzling finger staccato patterns. The cajon looks for the all the world like a humble box but it has become so much more.
Instead of relying on the tones inherent in any one type of wood, LP engineers devised a composite wood body, capable of a broad range of frequency responses, especially a deep low-end, so critical to traditional cajon performance. Tension of the cajon's internal "snare strings" can be adjusted easily with a standard drum key. And in a nice design stroke, front height-adjustable feet enable the LP Cajon to be tilted to popular playing positions, liberating it from the floor for increased resonance and player comfort.
The cajon can be incorporated into a variety of set ups--even doubling as a drummer's throne! The LP Cajon is an ideal and popular add-on to your drum kit.
