Three days prior to the NAMM Show we recorded all the new 2019 products of Gretsch, DW, PDP and Latin Percussion at the DW factory in Oxnard, located across the street from Drummchannel.com. In the center of all the rooms and machines where the mother company of all these brands builds their drums, the actual NAMM booth was setup with the new drums, including the Pure Almond Collector's Series. The LP space was filled with great new percussion like the Solo Cajon and the drummer-friendly Box Kit we look at here. Pete Lockett demos both in the videos below and Derek Zimmerman gives you all the details.
A cajon with a 'Rapid Response Curve' ?!? The rapid response curve on the solo cajon is an actual curve in the shell on the already angled soundboard that you play with your hands. Through the curve the strings in the center of the cajon have a more rapid response because they are closer to the soundboard.
• a great feature to get more snare in the bass tones.
It has 4 tunable phosphor bronze strings; 4 adjustable swivel feet and a solid Cedar body with a soundboard of Exotic Cedar wood.
The LP Solo Cajon
LP Americana 3-zone Box Kit LP makes it possible to play the cajon like a drum - or with your hands of course. The box has 3 Tone Zones and the ease for the drummer is the independent bass soundboard. Just attach a bass drum pedal to the 5" removable Sound platform (with pedal mount!) and you are good to go. Just as nice is the adjustable snare mechanism to control the amount of snare you want to have on the surfaces. The three soundboards are made of Red Meranti and the body is Birch.
