String cajons, like snare cajons, can be used to create a traditional flamenco sound as easily as they can be used for a sound that is as contemporary as it comes. The Vintage Sunburst Birch String Cajon from Meinl reflects this duality. Though it is a functional cajon, its whimsical Vintage Sunburst Birch frontplate elevates its design to something more.

Watch a demonstration of the Meinl String Cajon

String cajons operate by the inclusion of wires, which span the interior of the frontplate from top to bottom. When these strings vibrate, they create the "sizzle" effect. This dry sounding vibration, which Meinl cajons create through the use of their innovative integrated string mute system, can be used for a number of musical applications. Additionally, the drummer can adjust the effect in order to regulate the amount of sizzle heard during the performance.

With comfort in mind, Meinl designs their cajons with padded seats. You'll be able to play for hours on your birch cajon, honing your skills until Alejandro Sanz, cajon artist, is calling you up for tips. Furthermore, the cajon has rubber footing to protect the underside of the drum from damage from the floor. With a professional heavy-duty nylon bag to carry your cajon in, the Vintage Starburst Birch String Cajon is a great choice for musicians looking to add a little bit of sizzle.
