With a padded sitting surface for your comfort, and adjustable top corners that allow you to change the volume and tone of your drum, the Black Rimba is a great option for hand drummers looking for anything from a traditional Peruvian sound to a contemporary synergy in the vein of Ben Harper, who uses the drums frequently on tour.

With a stylish frontplate made of Black Rimba and an effective resonating body made of cajon wood favorite, rubber wood, this matte finished cajon is all you could ask for in beauty. The adjustable screws at the top of the Meinl Snare Cajons control the sound of the crash effect. Loosened screws make a strong crash; tightened screws create a mild crash.

Meinl Snare Cajons offer innovative snare capabilities for a wide range in sound. With a full set of snare wires in the body of the cajons, drummers can adjust sound using the knurled finger knob on the drum body’s side.

Watch a demonstration of the Meinl Snare Cajon

Watch the video above for a demonstration of Meinl artistry, provided by Stephan Maass, a master in cajon drumming. Maass uses a variety of Meinl Percussion Cajons, such as a drum with a recessed top, to create a sound akin to a castanet by striking along the sides of the box.

Precision and sensitivity are the marks of Meinl Snare Cajons, as the knurled finger knob allows for great control of the snare’s sound. The snare can even be completely disabled, allowing for quiet transport, as well as a snare-less sound while playing. The customizability of the Meinl Snare Cajons give musicians artistic license in the creation of their sound with the unique compositions made possible.
