A musician can use this singular lightweight box drum to create as many sounds as a full drum set, and by adjusting the top corners you can further expand sound options.
The Meinl Headliner Series Cajons deliver the classic cajon sound at an affordable price and can be used in Flamenco or World Music. They are also very useful during unplugged gigs for delivering the rhythmic foundation for a whole band when a full drum set can’t be used. Complete with anti-slipping seating surface, a wrench for adjustments, and a matte finish, the Meinl Headliner Series Cajon is an easily transported instrument for all percussionists.
Meinl has over 50 years of experience in the cymbal and percussion world, and their innovation with these ground breaking percussion instruments and cymbal sounds is nothing short of staggering. The full range of sounds that the Cajon can create are produced by adjusting not only the top corners that affect the timbre and crash, but by changing tension put onto wires inside the box drum. The nylon guitar strings located against the frontplate control the amount of sizzle heard during a performance. The cajon player can even disable the sizzle completely.
