The Cajón Pepote Jaleo is a percussion instrument to add color and emotion to your rhythms.
The cajón is an instrument widely used to accompany flamenco or South American rhythms, but its musical and sound versatility allows it to be used in many other styles, especially in acoustic formats.
The Pepote Jaleo is a high-quality model from the Spanish brand, with a great sound, perfect for those who have already mastered or are developing their technique with great demand.
The sound power of the Pepote Jaleo cajon results from the acoustic properties of its tops, made of selected birch and the resonance provided by the six vertically arranged staffs, which give it the characteristic timbre and personality of this instrument.
With a defined and rich sound, the Pepote Jaleo is a very interesting instrument for musicians who carry their cajón everywhere. With a robust construction, the Jaleo is a very light box, ideal for taking to impromptu parties or concerts.
With a very attractive appearance, the Pepote Jaleo cajón is even more noticeable by choosing one of the front covers finished in eight different colours, red, green, blue, yellow, walnut, black, orange or natural. The covers are made up of five 2.8 mm Mukali plates for high strength and resonance.
Cajón is an instrument widely used in flamenco. It comes from South America, but has African origins: created by slaves taken to Latin America, the cajón took root in Peru, where it is considered a Cultural Heritage of the Nation. Paco de Lucia introduced this instrument into flamenco, becoming part of its modern sound.
The original traditional construction of the cajón is simple, being just a rectangular box. Thanks to the influence of flamenco, catchphrases were included, such as those on snare drums, which give it another timbre and resonance, and a greater variety of sounds.
Since 1990, José "Pepote" Hernández Díaz has been manufacturing cajóns and has been developing them in search of the best sound and quality. It all started when, still 13 years old, he went to a concert by Paco de Lucia and fell in love with the snare drum from which the rhythms came, to the point of wanting to do his own. Nowadays, it is one of the references in the manufacture of cajóns and one of the reference producers worldwide.
Cajón Pepote Jaleo is a great drum machine to be played with emotion and heart by your hands.
