J. Leiva Mezquita (Red) Cajon Model 51.CAJ110
Detailed Description & Review


51.CAJ110  J. Leiva Mezquita Cajon - Original Red Finish

[51CAJ110 Leiva Mezquita Original (Red) cajon]Identical in construction & sound to the Mezquita Natural, Alma Red & Alma Natural (White) Cajon, except for the striking artwork on the front (tapa) face, the Mezquita Red is a superb mid-priced/entry level cajon. 100% Russian Birch construction,  cajon produces a broad, dynamic, yet flexible sound. Comes with padded protective carrying bag at no extra cost.

J. Leiva Mezquita cajons produce powerful, rounded, punchy bass tones & are the best sounding cajons made by any manufacturer in their price range.

The birch construction enhances crisp, sharp, cracking high tones. Slap strokes 'pop' beautifully. The 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.

Leiva Mezquita Cajons are sensitive across all playing intensities allowing the most delicate & subtle patterns to 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.

Adjustment of the four snare wires is via two external DTS snare adjusters at the base of the rear 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.

Professional cajon at a non-professional price.


PLEASE NOTE: Mezquita Cajons & Alma Cajons are identical except for finish.
