51.CAJ155 J. Leiva Omeya Master Cajon - Carbon Fibre Front Tapa Face & American Oak Body
have recently started playing this latest
addition to the J. Leiva cajon range, the flagship Omeya Master, built for
players who need extra dynamic range, higher volume, increased sensitivity &
increased durability. Our comments below are based on our own personal
experience with this beautiful cajon.
Construction & Sound: The Leiva Omeya Master Series Cajon is made from American Oak throughout with a 1.9mm aeronautical grade carbon-fibre tapa front plate. The body width tapers slightly to a narrower back face, focussing the bass tones. In addition, the front to back dimensions are deeper than on a standard cajon, producing the same effect as deeper 'Power-Sized' drums on a kit; deeper fundamental tone or bass note.
Oak produces a broad dynamic range at higher volume (when needed). A single rear sound-hole emits an incredibly deep, powerful, yet balanced bass tone, maintaining a lovely balanced sound at whatever volume or intensity the cajon is played.
The front tapa face, made from 1.9mm carbon fibre is
almost indestructible, incredibly sensitive & comes with a lifetime
guarantee. When played it emits a beautifully distinct, natural, wide-range of high & slap tones & the dynamic
range is impressive. Similar in character to a snare drum, as you play harder so
the amount of snare & fullness of tone increases.
8 snare wires (as 4 pairs) gives an incredible range of snare sound adjustments & options, with sensitivity across the whole playing surface. Further photos & manufacturing information is available on the Leiva website.
A high quality leather padded seat for comfort & 4-point minimal contact feet to increase isolation (& hence resonance) finish off this beauty. If quality of sound, volume, sensitivity & durability are your aims & budget is not an issue, the Leiva Omeya Master is the cajon of choice for you
A truly professional cajon: the best of the best.
