A Key Player in the Peruvian Music Scene

Spend any time listening to music in coastal Peru, and you're bound to spy a Schlagwerk. The appropriately named Schlagwerk Cajon la Peru has the kind of tone and response that players flock to for Flamenco, rumba, and folksy rhythms. It also happens to be the instrument that put Schlagwerk Percussion on the map. This handmade German cajon is made from seven plies of alder for an authentic sound - one that's not excessively bassy - and features a gorgeous burl veneer faceplate for a stageworthy look. Special cajon strings that are easy to adjust with tuning screws at the base give the Schlagwerk Cajon la Peru a crisp snap for commanding comps and snare-like backbeats.

Modern cajonists owe a great debt to Schlagwerk Percussion. Not only did Schlagwerk popularize the cajon as we know it with the help of Freddie Santiago 30 years ago, but Schlagwerk also introduced the idea of using snare wires to simulate the classic buzz - usually the result of split plywood - heard in these former slave instruments. Every premium Schlagwerk cajon is still handmade in Germany with real German quality and innovation - just as it was when owner Gerhard Priel began building temple blocks in his garage in 1982. When you're ready to take your playing to the next level, Sweetwater stands behind Schlagwerk cajons.
