The Makah-Burl String Cajon features a Makah-Burl frontplate with a resonating body made of rubber wood. Like Meinl's other cajon designs, the string cajon has adjustable top corners to control the amount of crash emitted by your instrument.

Tightening the screws will muffle the noise, whereas loosening the screws strengthens the crash String cajons have vinyl wires spanning the inside of the frontplate, which creates the traditional "sizzle" effect. Drummers can regulate the tension of the metal wires, which changes the strength of the sizzle. The vibration of these strings delivers a rattle that sounds both crisp and dry. The innovative integrated string mute system used by the Meinl cajons provides for consistent sound and easy adjustments.

Meinl cajons have great projection and attractive frontplates, ensuring that your cajon will be the best looking in the band. In no time at all, you'll be moving up to the ranks of Norah Jones, Seth Lakeman, and The Coronas, who have all begun using the cajon in the recording of their latest albums.

    The cajon arrived very quickly and in perfect shape (probably to the chagrin of those who have to hear me!) Thanks for the guidance on which to buy, as I have virtually zero musical ability...but it is fun, and my girlfriend and her son get extraordinary sounds out of it. Will confidently recommend your business. Meanwhile, looking for a flamenco troupe to join!!!!
