To round out the introduction of the series, LP also created the'Americana Peruvian Style Cajon (LP1439)'The hand-selected, exotic African okoume wood front plate produces a wide spectrum of traditional Peruvian-style cajon sounds, from the highest-pitched slaps to the deepest, most thunderous bass tones. With its precision dovetail construction, the Peruvian Style Cajon measures 11 1/2'' x 12 1/2'' x 19 1/2''Latin Percussion announced the release of its new'Americana Series of Cajons. Manufactured entirely in the USA, Americana Cajons are constructed using hand-selected, 11-ply, plantation grown Baltic Birch, chosen for its superior durability and incredible resonance. The Americana Series makes its debut featuring three distinct models, a String Style cajon, a Snare Style model and a traditional Peruvian model. Each cajon is carefully made by hand using a uniquely engineered design and shape that optimizes the instrument's acoustic performance and delivers a rich, satisfying tonal range. In addition, all of the materials used in the manufacturing of the Americana Series meet Phase II CARB Compliancy and Lacey Act Standards.
"With the Americana Series, LP has a taken a giant leap forward in our Cajon offering," said Victor Filonovich, Director of Product Management. "Months of research went into choosing the optimal selection of materials to maximize our advanced design and ultimately produce the best sounding cajons ever made.
What's more, our decision to manufacture these instruments in the United States, near our world headquarters in Garfield, New Jersey affords us the opportunity to closely monitor product quality and continue to work with our manufacturing facility on developing more new instruments quickly and efficiently."
To further ensure the quality of every Americana Series cajon, each instrument receives a final ten-point inspection by a quality control specialist before it is boxed to ship. The specialist closely examines each cajon and upon approval, hand signs an inspection certificate that is placed in the carton with the drum.
