Watch a demonstration of the Meinl Turbo Cajon
For one of the most innovative designs in cajons being produced today, check out the Meinl Turbo Cajon. With patents still pending on the design, the Turbo Cajon is one of the most modern cajons on the market. Designed by Oliver Bottger, this cajon features deep channels with castanet-like surfaces. By striking these areas, the drummer can create a slap effect.
The frontplate and resonating body are both made of Red Oak Wood, which gives the Turbo Cajon an attractive, uniform quality. This handsome instrument will complement a band nicely, providing a unique sound with a beautiful face, the Nico of the instrument world.
Like other Meinl cajons, the Turbo Cajon has a comfortable padded sitting surface for longer practice and performance times, as well as a wide variety of sound options, due to the customizability inherent in Meinl cajons. The drummer can adjust the tension of the internal snare wires in order to vary the sound of his instrument. The Turbo Cajon is like two instruments in one; with qualities of a cajon and a castanet in one easily moveable hand drum.
With the unique sound of the Turbo Cajon and a little bit of elbow grease, it's only a matter of time until Vince Gill is calling you for advice on performing.Materials
