Get even more snap and sizzle out of your cajon with the affordable Meinl Cajon Jingle Castanet. Now, punctuating your sound with exciting and interesting new accents is as close as your fingertips!
Meinl artisans take the traditional wooden castanet design and add a pair of tambourine-inspired steel jingles to give you brighter and snappier rhythmic accents that add more flavor and character to your musical vibe. Each percussive castanet is spring-loaded for a fast, consistent response and produces a dry click sound that projects well wherever you sit down to play. Have fun discovering all its many accents and variations as you use different finger techniques to produce a wide array of ever-changeable sounds.
The castanet has a self-adhesive back that quickly attaches to any cajon surface so you can mount it wherever you like on the front or sides. And, there’s no need to remove the castanet when you’re finished playing either. It’s small and light enough so that it doesn’t interfere with your normal strokes or in any way affect the sound of your cajon when the castanet isn’t being used.
Each castanet is great for you, your budget and the environment, made from sustainably grown, eco-friendly rubberwood with a contemporary matte black finish.
