LP Americana Series Octo-Snare Cajons

A unique American-made cajon modeled after a snare drum.

Latin Percussion is proud to present the innovative Americana Series Octo-Snare Cajons. The handcrafted, eight-sided drums feature a hardwood top. The Octo-Snare Cajons are fitted with fixed internal snares and dual playing surfaces. The Octo-Snare Cajons are available in two different top surfaces and sizes: a 10″ diameter drum with birch hardwood (LP1410 – MSRP: $159.00), and a 12″ diameter drum with Sapele hardwood (LP1412 – MSRP: $199.99). Both cajons are made with a 5″ deep, natural finish shell of 9-ply Baltic birch.

The LP Octo-Snare Cajons are now available at Authorized Latin Percussion Retailers.

“The Octo-Snare Cajons allows players to convert their cajon rig into a drum set,” said Victor Filonovich, Director of Product for Latin Percussion. “The wood top responds well to hands, mallets or rods.”
