OVERVIEW

Designed with Alex himself and constructed in his homeland, this is an authentically Peruvian cajon.

This Alex Acu±a Signature Cajon features Peruvian mohena construction with dovetail corners and a lacquer finish. At Alex's request, a matte-finished face was added. The cajon has a partially adjustable face and rubber feet. The sound is warm with plenty of bass response.

This cajon comes with a free bag.

Born in Pativilca, Peru, Acu±a played in local bands from the age of ten, and moved to Lima as a teenager.

Acu±a left Weather Report in 1978, and became a session musician in California, recording and playing live with (amongst many others): Paul McCartney, Joni Mitchell, Ella Fitzgerald, Jim Walker, Chick Corea, Whitney Houston, Pl¡cido Domingo, Phil Keaggy, Sergeant Petter, Sam Phillips, former Weather Report bandmates Wayne Shorter and Joe Zawinul, Herbie Hancock, Carlos Santana, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Beck, Roberta Flack, U2, and Al Jarreau.
