Malmark El Jefe Cajon - Product Information

El Jefe "the boss" is designed to be the less expansive counterpart to El Guapo. El Jefe produces a big booming controlled bass tone balanced out with clear slap and snare tones. Malmark has hand constructed this drum out of 1/2" hand picked 11-layer Baltic Birch plywood with a 1/8" hand picked baltic birch playing surface. To create strength and tonal quality all the wood is glued together using a high strength wood glue. Snare wires are added in the precise place to provide balance and exception tonal response.

Dimensions:19 3/4" H X 14" W X 13 1/8" D

My first cajon & it rocks!

Comments:

This is the first cajon that I have ever owned and/or played, so take this review with that in mind. I love this thing and so does everyone who hears it being played. The sound is great. It has significant sound variances from low to high. I took it to an open mic at a neighborhood Chicago bar & without a mic, people in the back of the bar apparently had no trouble hearing & distinguishing the different tones. I would certainly like to mic this bad boy up soon and really see what it can do. I would also like to point out the construction quality. This thing is very structurally solid and obviously hand made. You can tell that these are individually hand sanded and hand finished. I can see the brush strokes from someone hand applying the finish. That's a quality that you will not find with the "big box" brands. I also really like the heavy duty rubber feet on the bottom & at $159, you can't beat the price!

Great quality

Comments:

Although it took about 3 weeks to get to me, it was worth the wait. I believe Malmark makes the cajon to order. This is a quality product. It has a deep bass sounds and great snare sounds with many different sounds between, I would recommend this product. I have been a drummer for 30 years and know the difference between a toy and an instrument, This is an instrument.Thank you.

Great Bass Tone, Clear Slap and Snare Tones

Comments:

This is my first cajon and I bought it at the suggestion of a Steve Weiss Music representative. I was looking for a value-priced instrument for casual use and for worship music. Being a percussionist who also plays congas, I didn't want to settle for a mediocre instrument. I tried several cajons in this price range, but none had the strong bass tones and clear snare and slap tones of the El Jefe'. I am just getting started with this instrument and really enjoy it. This is an excellent cajon to buy if you are looking to purchase in this price range.
