The Lindo Cajon can be played with a very light touch. You will hear with bright trebles and a powerful bass response. The cajon has a guitar string snare in a double V shape, which is easily adjustable without the need for tools – just use a coin! The Lindo cajon is finished with rounded edges, so as a result looks really smart. These also give the drum a very tactile quality. The drum is suitable for beginners, experienced and professional players.
The Lindo Cajon utilises Birchwood and Platanus Hispanica (London Plane), which is a native Spanish wood. The face, or tapa, of the cajon is made from birchwood. It has a bright appearance and provides a very responsive and snappy sound. Platanas Hispanica makes up the main body of the cajon. The Platanas Hispanica provides the deep and punchy bass tones and is a pleasing contrast with the light face of the Birch. On the back of the cajon we have the soundhole. Take a take a look inside to find four wound guitar strings. These strings form the v-shape snare which is heard when hitting the top part of the face of the cajon. They are extremely effective and pleasing to hear and can be adjusted with two screws on the underside of the cajon.
There is an array of tones which you can achieve when applying certain techniques to the face of the Lindo cajon. When playing the top part of the cajon, this produces the rattle effect of the snare drum. In order to emulate the low-end bass tone of a kick drum, use the palm of the hand, striking further down the face of the drum. Strike the sides of the cajon and you’ll achieve a different tone altogether akin to a tom drum. Use the fingertips for effective drum rolls, flurries and ghost notes. See the Lindo demo video to explore all the features of this cajon and see a full play through demo to hear what it sounds like. Like a drum kit in a box, so is brilliant for jamming with friends. Helps the player to keep time and great for practising drum patterns and beats.
