The classic and beautiful shells of the Eclipse Cajón are made from plantation-grown, renewable wood sources that are renowned fortheir sonic qualities. The Eclipse features a set of internal wire snares (in the flamenco style) for a tighter top end slap, while retaining deep bass notes. The strong front striking panel is fastened to the body of the Cajón with screws (in the Peruvian style). This allows for the plate to be loosened or tightened to adjust the amount of click or pop produced when the top edge is struck. A textured seating surface ensures a comfortable and slip-free playing experience and the large rubber feet keep it secured nicely to the floor. However, all the technical specs in the world don't make an instrument sound good. This is where we have this one nailed; rich bass tones, crisp highs, loud 'snaps' and that all so important slap.
