About Subwoofer Series Cajon

The MEINL Subwoofer Cajon features a forward projecting sound port in place of the traditional rear facing style and an internal reflex channel. This results in an enhanced bass note projection, particularly desirable for live and unplugged situations. The Jumbo Bass Cajon version is slightly bigger and produces immense deep sounds.

Cajon Our bassiest

Using the idea of how a subwoofer boosts low end in a speaker setup, we began to work on the Meinl Jumbo Bass Subwoofer Cajon.

Made for acoustic sets, small or large theatres, outdoor shows and houses of worship

Solid Design

Are you looking for a solid, reliable house percussion piece that can carry a group of musicians through a set of music?
The Jumbo Bass Subwoofer Cajon is great for being used by many different players in any style of music.

Re-engineered elements for an unmatched experience

Bass reflex system

Inside the Jumbo Bass Subwoofer Cajon is a bass reflex system that directs sound waves and air through different channels before projecting out from the large, forward-facing sound ports. This gives the frequencies more time to develop inside the body of the cajon, resulting in ultra-low, enhanced bass waves. Think of it as a mechanical subwoofer.
Positioning sound ports on the front envelopes you in a healthy dose of low end tone while projecting your beats directly toward your audience.
For extra amplification, place a microphone by one of the front ports.

Three internal fixed sets of snares

Outfitted with snare wires that respond with a crisp and sensitive snare sound, the Jumbo Bass Subwoofer Cajon allows you to easily execute deep back beats and complex rhythms.
The snares react perfectly to soft finger rolls,
ghost notes, and loud back beat slap tones when played near the top corners. They are evenly spaced to fan out against the inside of the walnut playing surface to give you a reactive snare touch wherever you strike.

Walnut playing surface

This is where ALL the sound initially develops, so we had to pick the right material and build it out correctly.
Walnut is used in drum set manufacturing for its even levels of highs, mids and lows. It also creates a wide open sound that is loaded with warmth and depth—perfect for a jumbo-sized bass cajon.
We chose walnut for the playing surface and
carefully made it thin enough to respond to soft finger rolls and brush playing while ensuring it's durable enough to endure heavy back beats and fast, choppy rhythms.

the bass It's all about

We're not talking about a nice thud with decent resonance. We
mean the type of low end that you can feel and has the ability to
rattle walls.
Think about it - if you brought that kind of power to the stage,
you and everyone around you would look at the cajon in an
entirely different way. Your drumset-prohibitive gigs would
engage on a whole new level.
The cajon CAN be a powerhouse instrument in its own right
without stepping over the decibel boundary cajons are meant for.
