The Maestral model has been taken around the world by Paquito González, on tour with Vicente Amigo, and its sound can be even listened on Paco de Lucía last recording, “Canción Andaluza”.
This special signature version features a coated circular area applied to the front panel.
It is a permanent material that allows the hand to be used as a snare brush, adding a further colour to the cajón soundscape.
This process also has the effect of reducing the harmonics of the Maestral, creating a drier sound.
This makes its amplification very easy, therefore it is especially suitable for those percussionists who like to play with controlled dynamics and enjoy the art of accompanyment, like the Maestro Paquito.
