If you're looking for a versatile and extremely affordable percussion instrument you can use for live gigs and acoustic shows, then this Latin Percussion Black Box Cajon is an excellent choice. For starters, it features a real Baltic birch front plate (not something you find on most economy cajons) which gives you the kind of clarity and warm tone Sweetwater percussionists look for in their own instruments. The smooth matte black finish is a nice touch too. Fixed snare wires provide a second timbre, adding a nice snap to accompany the solid bass thump you'll get from the Black Box Cajon. And thanks to its small footprint, the Latin Percussion Black Box Cajon is perfect for grab-and-go gigs.
