The Meinl Bass Pedal Cajon is the ultimate percussion instrument for artistic expression. Adjustable snare wires allow a wide range of sounds and great bass tones to be played on this box drum. A special foot pedal attached to the bottom of the cajon allows the musician to adjust the amount of pressure used to press the snare wires against the ebony front plate. This enables the musician to change settings of the snare wires virtually hands free with no interruption, making two-handed rhythms much easier to perform. This feature can also be turned off completely.
The Meinl Bass Pedal Cajon is larger than standard Meinl Cajons, giving it more projection and bass frequencies. Adjustable top corners also allow the musician to control the sound of the Cajon.
The Meinl Bass Pedal Cajon comes in a matte-finished ebony with a rubber wood resonating body. It also features a padded sitting surface for performance comfort.
Watch the video above for a look at Stephan Maass, a master in cajon drumming, demonstrating all that the Meinl bass pedal cajon can offer.
The Meinl cajon is becoming a very popular percussion instrument and is being used in multiple genres anywhere from country to alternative rock. Rock out with the Cajon like some of your favorite artists, like Fleetwood Mac, Destiny's Child, or the Violent Femmes.
