A Tempo CJ-ELART-01 El Artesano Cajon

Sale price $ 259.00 Regular price $ 375.00

El Artesano is a cajón that balances the best sonic characteristics of both a traditional cajón and a Flamenco cajón. It has a warm, booming bass as well as a snappy slap tone. The body of this cajón is made from select pieces of solid Mohena, American Muskwood and Tropical Walnut with a multi-ply Spanish Cedar and Lupuna playing surface and resonant side. 

The interior snare wires are designed and placed to reduce their sound when playing the bass tone without sacrificing any snap on a slap tone. The result is a cajón that balances the best sonic characteristics of both a traditional cajón and a Flamenco cajón.
