The Meinl Percussion cafe Cajon with free gig bag is constructed of birch wood for full, resonant bass notes and crisp slap tones. An internal snare system is fitted against the inside of the playing surface to add a sizzle effect, mimicking the sound of a snare drum. The front plate in almond eucalyptus finish responds well to finger rolls as well as corner slaps and bass hits, giving you optimal dynamic control. When played towards the center, the solid natural finish resonating body accompanies the playing surface by broadening your bass notes to achieve a deep and punchy sound, reacting much like a kick drum. Non-slip rubber feet allow the body to resonate to its fullest while providing stability. This instrument is ideal for acoustic gigs when a full drum kit cannot be used. The free Meinl standard Cajon gig bag protects your Cajon and provides hassle free transportation. The heavy duty stitching and carrying grip ensures that your Cajon is protected while on the road to the gig or studio. Store your instrument inside the bag to protect against dirt, dust, and moisture. The portability of the Meinl cafe Cajon with bag makes it easy for musicians to integrate into their main act, on stage or in the studio.

Great sound is easy to achieve from this cajon for anyone interested in rhythm, regardless of skill level. Café cajons measure 17.25″ tall x 12″ wide x 12″ deep.
  • ADJUSTABLE PLAYING SURFACE: Adjustable top frontplate corners give you the ability to alter the amount of ‘slap’ to dial in your personal feel when playing. Tighten or loosen the screws located on the top corners of the playing surface to experiment with this effect.
  • REAR PORT IDEAL FOR MIC PLACEMENT: A rear sound port is cut into the back of the birch resonating body to allow air to escape from the cajon as you play it. This results in enhanced tonal qualities and overall feel. It’s also an ideal spot to place a microphone when amplification is needed.
