Two Tone Cajon
Two Tonal Chambers:
Why Two Tonal Chambers?
- This totally unique and professional-level cajon features an internal tone chamber for the snare and a completely separate tonal chamber for the bass..
- This gives the snare a fantastic crisp sound and isolates the bass sound from the snare so that the instrument produces a clear and rounded bass tone with no snare leakage. (As you can hear from the MP3 Demo)
- Both the snare and bass sections have their own sound holes to further enhance and isolate the distinctly different sounds.
- A fantastic eye catching sound hole design, excellent play-ability and robust construction go to make this Cajon a pleasure to play and listen to.
- It's a matter of clarity of sound.
- The bass chamber takes up the lower two thirds of the cajon. So striking the playing surface towards the center will produce a deep bass drum sound with no snare overlay. While striking the bass chamber more to the top will give a good floor tom sound.
- The Snare Chamber takes up the top third of the cajon and because it is isolated form the bass section the snare sound is clean, bright and tight.
- The Drum is handmade with 6mm thick top and bottom, 6mm sides and 6mm back with decorative sound-holes. All wood used is top quality Scandinavian Birch wood ply.
- The front playing surface is very thin and flexible ply which allows for great sound and easy playing.
- With jointed top and bottom and internal reinforcement the drum is built to be played and to last.
- The cajon has an oiled finish.
- Dimensions Height 47cm, Width 30cm, Depth 30cm.
This instrument is perfect for Busking, Recording or Playing Live.
I have been out busking with it and the volume was perfect even in a busy high street.
I've recorded the drum with a single mic positioned between the sound-holes and I needed very little eq to get the sound just right.
I've also played live with it....it's fantastic for acoustic nights and open mic sessions.
(The sound clip for this model is recorded using a bass drum mic positioned near the sound-hole and a condenser mic at the front.)
