A handcrafted beauty ideal for flamenco and world music.
The cajon is a truly amazing instrument. Ostensibly a wooden box, the cajon is much more, providing
many striking areas and "sweet spots" and a range of tones from snappy highs to resonant lows. When constructed meticulously
and placed in the hands of a capable percussionist, the cajon can open up a variety of pitches and timbres, complementing
flamenco and various Latin genres.
The LP Cajon by Mario Cortes is constructed from specially selected birch pieces.
Birch is a wood admirably suited to cajons owing to its emphasis on clean highs and natural low end, both obtainable without
excessive player effort. Instruments constructed of Finnish birch are often termed "naturally EQ-ed" and this attribute of
the Mario Cortes Cajon will surely augment LP's reputation as manufacturer of the most recorded cajons in the history of flamenco,
fusion, and world music.
Handmade in Spain and individually tested, the LP Cajon by Mario Cortes features a construction
system so unique it is patented. All joints are dove-tailed rather than simply butted. Internal wire snare strands add high
end sizzle to the conga-like highs and lows emitted by this premium instrument.
Designed by Mario Cortes, renowned
flamenco guitarist and instrument maker, the LP Cajon by Mario Cortes is a natural fit in all flamenco inspired and world
music ensembles. It speaks in rich tones, with the right balance of attack and resonance and, thus, is bound to be a highly
sought after instrument.
