Recently I acquired a Gon Bops Mixto cajon. There are basically two types of cajons: the traditional Peruvian type and the Flamenco cajon with internal snare wires. I couldn’t make up my mind so I got the Mixto, which has two playing surfaces, one traditional and one Flamenco style. They are both very warm and fat. The snare side has more snap. Here it is:
I am just figuring out how to transfer some of my drum kit skills to this new instrument. Here is a slow jam with cajon, bass, and two guitars:
This is the traditional side of the cajon. The rhythm guitar is my Casino, straight into the interface, with a bit of reverb and heavy use of the Bigsby. The lead is my Telecaster through the Brown model on the Katana 50. This is the first time I have recorded with that amp.
I’m feeling mellow a Latin Surf vibe.
