Schlagwerk has been making percussion instruments since 1983. This German company emphasizes the highest levels of craftsmanship and sound qualities into their products. They are constantly innovating and refining their cajon products. The Schlagwerk 2-in-One cajon is a best selling cajon in Europe and now is available here in the United States. The cajons produced by Schlagwerk use the best woods and materials that are out there. Their modern sounding cajon is truly a treat to listen to. Here is a breakdown of their current cajon products line up.
Cajon Agile – A fitting name for Schlagwerk’s new cajon series. The technical core is formed by a removable element for creating an exceptionally fast and precisely responsive snare sound. This sensitive attack is produced in the base & dual models using a snare carpet. In the pro models a flexible damping system combined with adjustable string tension ensures a very agile attack.
Cajon Fineline – The most visually striking addition to the Cajon Fineline series is the smooth, rounded resonance box. This design guarantees a comfortable and enjoyable playing experience for the musician. The resonance box also supports the distinct sound characteristics of the Morado and Mocca’s playing surfaces, which are made from peeled high-grade woods. Snare wires developed specially for each of these two playing surfaces add a distinctive note to the sound and give the instrument an incredibly delicate response.
Cajon La Peru – Leagues ahead in quality and sound definition: tried and tested a thousand times, La Perù® technology is based on special cajon strings, whose individual sounds can be adjusted with the help of tuning screws located at the base.The playing surfaces are supported by bases made of optimised woods.
Cajon 2inOne – It works like this: spirals inside the Cajon press against the playing surface at a precisely defined angle. When the surfaces are played, the spirals vibrate in a controlled manner and produce a modern snare-cajon sound. The spiral technology can be removed from the 2inOne Cajon in one quick movement. The Cajon then produces the traditional Cuban sound.
Cajon Quick Assembly – Unbeatably affordable for anyone who wants to build their own instrument: Schlagwerks cajon construction kit in heights 45 cm or 50 cm. The most successful cajon assembly kit of recent years is now even better – thanks to the newly designed and precisely prefabricated parts, and with the tension belts and quick-drying adhesive included, it now takes even less time. Easy playing for cool sounds!
Bass Cajon – The elegant appearance of the Schlagwerk Bass Cajon highlights the central role of Cajonists in every band. The solid, voluminous bass base combined with the sensitive snare effect means that both models give pure acoustic power.
Kids Cajon – Specially-designed for the little ones – with both Kids Cajons, young musicians have two robust instruments at their disposal, which, with their child-friendly size and real Cajon sound, make playing fun.
Cajon Compact – Everything that makes the sound and manufacturing quality of a Cajon is combined here in a compact design. Ideal when travelling and as a useful addition to your percussion setup.
