Why Schlagwerk?

Because the name stands for intelligent and high-quality products: The sounds are clean and full-bodied, the cajon features smoothly rounded edges and corners, the snares produce a sound similar to that of a drumset, and, last but not least, you can sit comfortably on the instrument.
