EL CAJONCITO (THE LITTLE CAJON)
While this cajon is smaller in size,
it’s sound is not.
Wood: Monterey Pine
The Little Cajon is a scaled-down, Flamenco-style
cajon with traditional, guitar wire snares. At about
3/4" the size of our other Peruvian cajons, it is perfect
for a younger or smaller stature player. The body
is solid Monterey Pine panels with dovetail joints
- just like those utilized on A Tempo’s professional
instruments. Playing and resonant surfaces are made
from the same great-sounding, multi-ply Lupuna and
Spanish Cedar we put on our pro instruments.
Two sound chambers with separate ports
yield distinct high and low tones.
The Bongo Cajon is constructed of Mohena and the
tapa (head) is multi-ply Lupuna and Spanish Cedar.
The A Tempo Bongo Cajon features separate distinct
sound chambers--one for Macho (Small, high-pitched)
and the other for the Hembra (Larger, low-pitched)
side. The bottom is solid wood with individual ports
for each side to emphasize the distinct pitches of
the two sound chambers. Each side now features
“No-slip” pads for added comfort and stability while
playing. Free gig bag included!
