How we make it

Cajons

MEINL cajons are constructed with a combination of gluing and nailing techniques.
The cajon body is planed by hand. This creates the optimal contact between the faceplate and the body.
The sound hole is cut out of the back plate.
The sides and edges are carefully sanded.
The adjustable sizzle strings are positioned behind the frontplate. Here you see the tuning screws on the bottom of the cajon.
The parts are measured and marked for drilling.
Our proprietary snare mechanism with foot pedal is being installed. Here you see the return spring being connected.
Here you see a Bubinga faceplate being fastened with screws.
MEINL cajons are securely packed for safe transport to distributors and dealers all over the world.
