Mano Percussion #MP-CAJ100-ES - Ebony Stripes Cajon with Foam Seat and Gig Bag

Comes with Foam Seat Pad. Mano MP-CAJ100-ES is a Ebony Stripes Cajon with Foam Seat Pad. A cajon is a box-shaped percussion instrument originally from Peru, played by slapping the front or rear faces with the hands, fingers, or sometimes various implements such as brushes, mallets, or sticks. Cajones are primarily played in Afro-Peruvian music, as well as contemporary styles of flamenco and jazz among other genres. These instruments can also be used in Latin American Music and Mexican folk music. How to Use: The player sits astride the box, tilting it at an angle while striking the head between their knees. The percussionist can play the sides with the top of their palms and fingers for additional sounds. The instrument can also be played with plastic and metal brushes, as used for drum kits. Another way of playing the cajon is to use an ordinary bass drum pedal, thus turning the cajon into an indirect percussion instrument which can be played with the feet. This enables the player to beat it just like a pedal-bass drum, thus leaving the hands (and one other foot) free to play other instruments. On the other hand, it also restricts the player's standard cajon-playing position, as when the cajon is placed on the ground, in the bass drum location, it is hard for the performer to slap it with her or his hands Features:
