The WHD Cajon - A Percussive Box Of Tricks
A cornerstone of Rumba and even Flamenco music, the Cajon originated in the 1800's among Peruvian slaves along the coast of their native country. These Peruvian slaves used fruit crates and dresser drawers to tap out a beat. The modern-day Cajon can can be played in the traditional fashion, or it can even be implemented in drum sets, with a pedal or even a pair of pedals replacing the bass drum in the set.
The WHD Cajon by Gear4music proves itself more than capable of fulfilling these uses; an instrument with real snare wires that can be adjusted to suit a variety of timbres and tones. Unlike some Cajons, the WHD comes fitted with rubber feet and a non-slip seating surface, and is supplied with a durable bag for security and ease of transportation.
The WHD Cajon also sports a Ebony screw fitted laminate frontplate; a higher end feature in the modern cajon for improved resonance and looks, completed in a high gloss, quality matte finish, making the WHD Cajon an instrument that rewards replays.
The WHD Cajon was recently reviewed by leading online music publication, Music Radar...
"This great-value cajon feels like a wholly natural instrument to play."
"One of the most liberating aspects of this instrument is the ability to zip it up after a gig and head home long before the guitarist has even contemplated wiping down his strings. How cool is that?"
