Our X8 Drums Cajon Shootout continues with the De Gregorio Chanela Cajon:
Made in Spain, the De Gregorio Chanela Cajon features a head that’s both glued on and screwed in the corners, creating a tight, punchy, dry sound that’s ideal for anyone looking for a sound that’s more controlled than open. In addition to its controlled sound, the De Gregorio Chanela Cajon features a huge, mid-range bass that delivers a long sustain and almost a hip-hop boom. Because if its nice dry sound, you’ll also get a crispy slap. The De Gregorio is actually similar to the Schlagwerk but with more mid-range, boom, and sustain coming out of the bass.
The De Gregorio Chanela Cajon also features adjustable snares on the inside. You’ll find two sets of snares on each side. Not only can you tighten the tension of the snares, but you can adjust how close they are to the head with a velcro system that allows for versatility. Put the velcro tape under the snare to get it off of the head or tighten the velcro tape down to get the snare closer to the head.
