Cajon Agile

Agilis is a Latin word meaning “easily moved”. The word “agile” has developed from this in many languages as a synonym for energy, ease and liveliness. A fitting name for Schlagwerk’s new cajon series. The technical core is formed by a removable element for creating an exceptionally fast and precisely responsive snare sound. This sensitive attack is produced in the base & dual models using snare wires. In the Super Agile models a flexible damping system combined with adjustable string tension ensures a very agile attack.
