Meinl Bass Cajon with Foot Pedal and Ebony FrontplateThe Meinl Bass Pedal Cajon features a pedal attached to the cajon that adjusts the amount of sizzle provided by the snare wires as you play, or lets you turn off the wires completely. Due a size that's larger than standard Meinl cajons, the instrument delivers more projection and bass frequencies.The cajon is an authentic Afro-Cuban wooden box percussion instrument. Meinl cajons are completely handmade from start to finish. Drummers and percussionists appreciate the cajon for its diversity of sound. It is also perfect for unplugged gigs or quieter music. The cajon is one of today's most popular percussion instruments because it's very easy to play, and provides a great feel and rhythmic foundation for any musical situation. The cajon is often used during unplugged gigs or softer songs to replace an entire drum kit.After just a little practice, you'll be creating basic beats and grooves. It can be used by drummers as a substitute for their throne, playing it with one hand plays the ride or hi-hat.Many drummers also use the cajon during unplugged gigs, certain songs, or spontaneous sessions as its ability to emulate many sounds serves as an excellent substitute for a complete drum set.Traditionally, cajon drums are played by sitting on the top of the box while slightly leaning backwards. The frontplate is struck with the bare hands. Various playing techniques help to create different sounds ranging from deep bass tones to cutting highs and slaps. The bass cajon has a padded top for enhanced playing comfort.A nice effect can be achieved by sliding your foot up and down the frontplate when playing the cajon, changing the pitch of its tone.A unique and inspiring sound is achieved when playing the cajon's frontplate with a pair of brushes or rods.The history of the cajonThe cajon, which is the Spanish word for box, has been part of Afro-Peruvian music since the 19th century. The instrument originated in colonial Peru, when the slaves, whose African drums had been forbidden by their masters, used wooden boxes intended to hold fruits or overturned drawers to play their rhythms. Later the cajon was officially added to the instrumentation of the vals criollo, or "creole waltz." It is now a national emblem for Peruvians and an indispensable part of any ensemble that performs the traditional folk music of Peru.The cajon's later development can be clearly traced back to one man, the flamenco guitar player Paco de Lucia. In the early 1970s, the Spanish embassy in Lima, Peru hosted a party for Paco de Lucia, where a traditional Peruvian band performed, including a cajon player. Flamenco music comprises many different rhythms which are normally played by the guitar player striking the body of the guitar. At that party, Paco de Lucia asked his percussionist Ruben Danta to play the "Buleria", a flamenco rhythm, on the cajon. Pleased with the result, Paco de Lucia took the cajon with him back to Spain. The short staccato sounds that can be played on the cajon make it perfect for flamenco music, because that sound naturally relates to the footwork and hand-claps ("palmas") used in Flamenco. Since the cajon's historic migration from Peru to Spain, its use has spread worldwide.
