A Tempo 2020 Catalog - Page 4

The body of the Tocador Cajon is crafted by hand from
many small pieces of wood for an instrument that looks
as good as it sounds.
Wood: Tropical Walnut, Monterey Pine
A Tempo Percussion’s Tocador Cajon is made in Peru,
considered by most to be the birthplace of the
cajon as an instrument. The body panels of this cajon
are made from select pieces of solid Tropical
Walnut and Monterey Pine that are fashioned by
hand into A Tempo’s eye catching Escalonado
pattern and then joined using the sturdy dovetail
technique. The front features a multi-ply Spanish
Cedar and Lupuna tapa (playing surface) and the back
is made from Tropical Walnut and Lupuna. Tocador
Cajon features snare wires placed in the traditional
flamenco “W” configuration. The result is a cajon
with the deep, solid bass of a Peruvian cajon and the
snap and sizzle of a Flamenco cajon. The cajon is
finished in an attractive, furniture-grade satin finish.

The classic Cajón Peruano – carrying on a
rhythmic tradition over 200 years old.
Wood: Mohena
The traditional sound of the Peruvian Cajón
that has been foundational to the music of Peru
since the 19th century--characteristically deep,
defined bass and no snare wires. The tapa is
partially sealed and offers the round, mellow
tones that have characterized the “Cajón Peruano”
for generations. The body of this cajon is made
from select pieces of solid Mohena dried to a
precise 8 percent moisture level and then
joined with sturdy dovetail joints. It features a
multi-ply Spanish Cedar playing surface and a
resonant side made from a Lupuna plywood.
