Overview

The cajon is a truly amazing instrument. Ostensibly a wooden box, the cajon is much more, providing many striking areas and "sweet spots" and a range of tones from snappy highs to resonant lows. When constructed meticulously and placed in the hands of a capable percussionist, the cajon can open up a variety of pitches and timbres, complementing flamenco and various Latin genres.

The LP Cajon by Mario Cortes is constructed from specially selected birch pieces. Birch is a wood admirably suited to cajons owing to its emphasis on clean highs and natural low end, both obtainable without excessive player effort. Instruments constructed of Finnish birch are often termed "naturally EQ-ed" and this attribute of the Mario Cortes Cajon will surely augment LP's reputation as manufacturer of the most recorded cajons in the history of flamenco, fusion, and world music.

Handmade in Spain and individually tested, the LP Cajon by Mario Cortes features a construction system so unique it is patented. All joints are dove-tailed rather than simply butted. Internal wire snare strands add high end sizzle to the conga-like highs and lows emitted by this premium instrument.

Designed by Mario Cortes, renowned flamenco guitarist and instrument maker, the LP Cajon by Mario Cortes is a natural fit in all flamenco inspired and world music ensembles. It speaks in rich tones, with the right balance of attack and resonance and, thus, is bound to be a highly sought after instrument.

Deepest Bass

By seven seventeen

from rockville, maryland

Comments about LP Mario Cortes Cajon:

I tried 8-10 Cajons consisting of Aspire, Meinl and Gon Bops. The LP Mario Cortes has the best bass and snare. The seperation between the two sounds is very distinct. It feels very well made, is clean and has no rubber seat, which seemed to hinder resonance on the other models. Yea, I paid a little more, but the sound of the Mario Cortes is well worth it...you'll see!

Best of all

By JD

from Newcastle, WA

Comments about LP Mario Cortes Cajon:

Tried many different Cajons from Pearl, Meinl, and others. This sounded the best of all. Was little hesitant while placing the order. The sales person convince me into buying this one and assured me if I don't like then I return it to the store. I went ahead and bought this one. To my surprise it sounded so good on lows and snares that I could not believe. It has a is very sturdy built. You may not find it to play and try out but if you like Guitar Center try out policy then I would suggest definitely go for it. You'll not regret. It is worth every penny you pay for this stuff. Real lover of music would definitely appreciate its sound quality. Truly built for music lovers.

Awesome cajon

By R. Akin

from suwanee, ga

Comments about LP Mario Cortes Cajon:

I tried a few others but really liked this one. First it's great looking. Plus it feels much more solid than many of the others. The corners are stronger. The sounds is great with solid lows and quality highs. I highly recommend this cajon over the less expensive ones.
