About Artisan Edition Cajon - Tango Line

The Tango Line of artisan cajons have two groupings of three pre-tuned metal micro-coiled cajon strings that span across the inside of the playing surface for a crisp snare effect. These strings are hand-wound in the style of master cajon builder, José "Pepote" Hernández Diaz. Rounded corners and thumb notches on the top of the frontplate and resonating body optimize playing comfort and sound. The 7-Ply, 9mm thick Baltic Birch body develops the sound into a full, punchy tone that projects with clarity and warmth.  Available with Limba or Light Eucalyptus finish frontplates. Made in Spain.

Playing surface

The beautiful Limba frontplate features a textured surface for enhanced feel along with a superb response, from finger rolls and ghost notes to heavy back beats.

Resonating body

We used 7-ply (9mm) Baltic Birch highlighted with inlays to construct the body of the cajon. Baltic birch is commonly found in high end drum sets for its focused sound with wide tonal range.

Punchy bass with crisp snare slap tones

The foundation for sound development with this cajon lies in the wood combination—Baltic birch and limba.

Together, these wood species create naturally deep and focused bass with a highly sensitive response.

The limba frontplate also adds striking beauty with is heavily c

Pre-tuned custom micro-coiled steel cajon strings

Hand-wound steel strings span against the length of the playing surface inside the cajon to give you a snare response with clarity, precision and sensitivity.

Each side of the playing surface has three pre-tuned strings that give every area of the cajon a crisp, dialed-in snare effect, along with strips of thin fabric to eliminate buzzing or rattling.

Contoured playing surface

The exquisite limba playing surface is rounded at the corners and sanded down to form thumb notches where your hands lay in their natural position. This gives you exceptional contact with the cajon along with more comfort.

Taking the touch of this cajon a step further, the playing surface is sanded and shaped together with the resonating body to form a perfectly flush, 1-to-1 match. Each resonating body has a playing surface made just for it.

the feel It's all about

When there is no question about how it plays and you get MORE back in response than you put in, you have found a prized percussion masterpiece. It's a great feeling when you can sit down with this cajon and get a sense of its depth of sound and incredibly detailed craftsmanship with only a simple tap of your fingers on the playing surface.
