51.CAJ105 J. Leiva Easy Self-Assembly Travel Cajon
The J. Leiva Easy Travel Cajon,
made from 100% Russian birch represents the ultimate combination of innovation &
value, plus you get the great, broad, dynamic sound we expect from Leiva.
Leiva Easy cajons do more than just produce punchy, powerful, rounded bass tones. They can be assembled & taken to pieces in just 2 minutes, so if space during travelling is high on your agenda, they can be packed away into their sturdy box with carrying handles.
A big difference is that the Easy cajon is unfinished, meaning that you have the option to finish it according to your own design. We recommend a coat of waterproof wood treatment if you are likely to experience higher than normal humidity during storage & playing.
Tongue-and-groove assembly means a study, strong product.
All birch construction enhances the crisp, sharp, high tones.
strokes 'pop' beautifully on these 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.
Like other cajons in the Leiva range, response of the Easy cajon is exquisite at all playing intensities, so the most delicate & subtle patterns can cut through, whilst a full-on 'bark' is produced at high intensity playing when needed.
The 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.
The front tapa face & snare wires are pre-assembled, ensuring that optimum tension is maintained. Once assembled, the 4 snare wires can be tensioned via Leiva's external DTS tensioning knobs at the base of the front 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.
As with other Leiva cajons, snare wires cannot be completely removed from the sound of the cajon.

the cajon for a secure fit.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are a gigging musician who requires a reliable travel cajon that can be assembled & taken to pieces on a regular (nightly) basis, you are better to consider the Leiva Omeya Travel Cajon. The Easy Cajon is not really designed for that intensity of change.

of an assembled Leiva Easy Cajon. The tongue & groove sections are held
together securely by threaded rods which pass through the rear section & locate
into inserts within the front section.
The resulting cajon is sturdy & solid, giving a professional sound in any live or recording studio setting.
We are excited that a cajon of this flexibility & quality is available to this price. PLEASE REMEMBER: The wood comes unfinished & therefore, you need to consider whether you will need to apply waterproof sealing before use. Of course you can always create your own custom designs if you like (taking care not to interfere with the snares, tensioning mechanism or inserts.
