Cajon la Perù

CP4901 EVO Nature

The body is made from solid, smoked Alder top and bottom and SPL sides, Beech back and Gabon front. Our proprietary SC6 front is fixed by glue and screws, ratio 50/50, typically La Perù. That playing surface is partially densified through to enhance percussive sensitivity. This treatment delivers unprecedented attack and control. While the Alder/SPL body increases controlled bass, the 2 x 4 by Cajon wires produce swooshing rich yet ultra-precise snare. Each section of the wires is individually tuneable. All of this make the visual impressive “La Perù” Evo a very versatile instrument, suitable for any style of music.
