MEINL Woodcraft Professional cajons are built from Baltic birch wood and equipped with specially wrapped metal strings that span the inside of the playing surface, delivering well-defined snare and bass sounds. The birch construction with a 12 mm thick body allows players to play aggressively with a lot of attack and a warm tone. Internal solid metal strings add a sharp and sensitive snare effect that makes it easy to produce deep back palpitations and articulated finger rolls. The elegant mahogany and makah-burl front plate finishing options add striking aesthetics as well. Rounded corners on the playing surface provide total comfort and maximum touch.
