Ideal for acoustic gigs or jam sessions where a full kit would be too excessive, the Cajón's (pronounced ca-hon) origins hark back to nineteenth-century South America, where it became a major part of Afro-Cuban dance music. The player sits astride the Cajón, and strikes and slaps at the back and sides with his or her hands to create different percussive sounds. Tilting the box at an angle while playing will also change the tone and timbre, while interior snares add extra 'snap' effects.
The attractively coloured wood Cajón with decorative sound hole motif measures 48cm x 31cm x 30cm, and with non-slip rubber feet for extra grip, the PP142 Cajón includes a padded carry bag to keep it safe when in transit or storage.
At £69.99rrp, the PP Drum Cajón is within every drummer's reach and would also make and ideal music school room instrument.
