Watch a video demo of the LP Bongo Cajon
Let's face it, the description "boxy sound" used to be a negative when it came to drums. But the popularity of cajons—which are, basically, just wooden boxes—changed all that. Now LP has applied the concepts of cajon design to the higher-pitched acoustic range of bongo drums. The result is the new LP Bongo Cajon.
Along with its compact size (15-¾" long by 7" wide) and lightweight plywood construction, the Bongo Cajon is contoured to fit comfortably on a player's lap, or to be held between the knees in the traditional bongo playing position. Its open-bottomed, twin-chambered shell lets it produce two complementary high and low pitches that "pop" convincingly for a genuinely bongo-esque sound.
The LP Bongo Cajon's straightforward design and all-wood construction means no tuning or head replacement—ever. Along with its impressive acoustic performance, this makes the LP Bongo Cajon the perfect "all-purpose, take-anywhere" percussion instrument.
