The “De Luxe” edition aims to elevate the standard of the professional models Chanela, Yaquí and Kanyero.
The main added value is the material used for the body of the cajons, which is solid wood (a variety of Mahogany known as Sipo), and it is built with state of the art, digitally controlled machinery.
Thanks to this technology, the solid wood panels are thinned and profiled in such a way that they are both lightweight and rock solid.
The inner joints of the De Luxe models are specially contoured in order to eliminate the 90 degrees angle; this gives a mellower tone, more “rounded”.
The warmer tone is also achieved because the width of the De Luxe version is bigger than the standard models.
The beautiful look of solid wood adds up to its tonal qualities, creating a product that is very hard to improve.
