The body of this Primero cajon is constructed using MDF and features a meranti faceplate. Meranti is a wood known for its relative hardness and straight grain making it ideal for cajons. A built in bass port magnifies the massive low-end tone of the cajon while two sets of fixed snare wires provide a bright, crisp snare response. If you want to stand out the finish of this cajon will help, its unique finish is an abstract red print on a cloth sarong that is applied to the body of the cajon and is accentuated by the ebony front. The thing that will get you noticed the most is the incredible sound of this cajon.
