LP Angled Cajon
Included with purchase:
The new LP Angled Cajon playing surface better facilitates playing all of the various sounds, and keeps hands at more natural position when playing on the sounding panel. This innovative design promotes longer playing sessions, helps prevent trauma after frequent or long gigs, and also creates a more refined tonal palette.
- Playing surface is attached with adjustable screws
- Flamenco sound is produced by internal snare wires
- Burled wood playing surface, wood body and a textured seating surface provides superior bass resonance and enhanced sound
- 19"H x 12"W x 12"D Top, 17"D Bottom
Recording studios are built in an analogous fashion, substituting angles for parallel walls.The LP Angled Cajon also reduces so-called "standing waves" which creates a wider, more balanced frequency spectrum.This principle may account, in part, for the rich bass, distinct crisp slaps and warm mid-tones prevalent in the cajon.
Timbres are enhanced by specially chosen hardwoods, carefully butted and held in place by adjustable screws. And a nice touch: generous rubber feet "liberate" frequencies from choking, ensuring that resonant lows, which can equal those of a tumba in the right hands, do not transmit into the floor.
For flamenco ensembles, the LP Angled Cajon is fitted with internal resonating wires for a snare drum-like effect.
The Cajon has become extremely popular and for good reason. The percussion box offers delightful tones, sometimes muted and sometimes open, which simulate everything from bongos to tumbas to snare drums, when played with hand slaps, deep palm "dooms" and sizzling finger staccato patterns. The cajon drum looks for the all the world like a humble box but it has become so much more.
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.

MY second LP Cajon drum box

I must say that I have never had so much fun for so little money. The LP angled box is a great buy for the money as was the previous LP box I bought two years ago. The service from X8 Drums is super and I will buy from them again. I recommend them without reservation.

The colors on mine were different from the picture, but a beautiful reddish wood. Sound is great, and the angled cajon is definitely good for your back and playing ability! It came well-packaged and within a week.

Very nice cajon with great bass tone. It is comfortable to play with its angled surface in long time. Of course, like any other instruments, time is needed for the tone to be tuned with your practices.
Item received within a week, it would be perfect if X8 Drums can provide combined shipping to save shipping fee. Highly recommended.
