The Gon Bops Mixto 2-in-1 Cajon reflects 2 great cajon traditions - that of Spanish flamenco and also that of the Peruvian folk tradition. Having the sound port on the side allows both the front and the back (or the front and the other front) to be used as playing surfaces.

The flamenco side has snare wires while the traditional side does not. The snare side is designed to maximize snare buzz when playing slap tones and minimize buzz when playing bass tones. The traditional side has a partially sealed playing surface for maximum bass and adjustment screws on the top for varying the slap sound. The frame is made of Peruvian mohena wood and is constructed with dovetail joints for added strength.

Gon Bops Mixto Cajon. Great drum with beautiful tone. Big bass, tight snap. Beautifully crafted with a dovetailed joints, high polish body, and smooth playing surfaces. Two sided cajon offer choice based on style of play. Trouble is the side port forces you to commit to one side for a set or gig, unless you can have a second mic set up on the opposite side when you rotate the front to the back (traditional to flamenco). Top quality. A joy to play. Beautiful nuances. Bigger body gives the percussionist a bigger seat. Enjoy! After two years of playing it...I highly recommend it. Two drums in one. Worth the price.
