J. Leiva Alma (Formerly Mezquita) Classe Cajon
Detailed Description & Review
51.CAJ115 J. Leiva Alma (Formerly Mezquita) Classe Cajon
in 100% Russian birch, the J. Leiva Alma Classe (or Classic) Cajon has beautiful
artwork & a great, broad, dynamic sound.
Leiva Alma cajons produce punchy, powerful, rounded bass tones. Additional reinforcing of the rear sound hole adds some extra bass & focus to the sound of the Classe cajon when compared to the Alma Red Cajon & Alma Natural White cajons.
All birch construction plus a slightly thicker front tapa face (3.5mm) enhances the crisp, sharp, high tones. Slap strokes 'pop' beautifully on Classe cajons. A broad dynamic (tonal & volume) range does not sacrifice balance between the low & high tones at any playing intensity.
It is also possible to produce high tones with little or no bass
component & bass tones with no high tone or snare rattle.
The cajon's sensitivity across all playing intensities is exquisite allowing the most delicate & subtle patterns to cut through, whilst a full-on 'bark' is produced at high intensity playing when needed.
The stained birch shell allows a wide variety of effects, clicks, pops & snaps to be easily interspersed within your playing, again in great balance with the other tones; clearly standing out without dominating or getting lost.
Adjustment of the four snare wires is via two external DTS snare adjusters at the base of the rear face. Adjustment is quick & easy allowing you to customise the cajon to your own sound & individual needs during playing or recording. So you can change from a tighter, funkier sound, to a more gritty, rattly snare sound for ballads etc with a simple twist of the knobs.
PLEASE NOTE: Mezquita Cajons & Alma Cajons are identical except for finish.
