Tightening the screws will muffle the noise, whereas loosening the screws strengthens the crash String cajons have vinyl wires spanning the inside of the frontplate, which creates the traditional "sizzle" effect. Drummers can regulate the tension of the metal wires, which changes the strength of the sizzle. The vibration of these strings delivers a rattle that sounds both crisp and dry. The innovative integrated string mute system used by the Meinl cajons provides for consistent sound and easy adjustments.
As an added bonus, the Makah-Burl String Cajon comes with a nylon Cajon Bag for comfortable transport. You can look forward to your next performance with this bag that keeps your cajon safe, dent-free, and easily moved.
