Rosewood – Iris – Makassar

The Yaquí is perhaps one of the most unique cajóns within the DG line. Aside from the beautiful 2.5 mm Avio Birch front-plate (available in striking Makassar, Iris, and Rosewood veneers), the Yaquí features jingles attached to the center-post which vibrate lightly when bass-tones are played, adding an overall brightness to the tone. The sides and back of the instrument constructed of FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified birch and are varnished with a double coating of polyurethane lacquer.

The Yaquí has a very modern “bass drum and brushed snare”, with an added sprinkle of jingles, a  sound which can be heard on many recordings, including offerings from flamenco star Miguel Poveda (“Arte Sano”) as well as supergroup UHF (“Bipolar”), both featuring cajón legend and DG artist Paquito González.

    Excellent cajón. Very complete. Beautiful deep bass. Punchy and musical and when hit harder, the small bells vibrate adding an exotic and different decoration to the sound, making it extra musical. I personally enjoy the jingles. The upper edge is very sensitive and snappy so, the strings work effortlessly. At the same time, it delivers a woody and crispy slap.
    That cajón makes music wherever you hit. One of my favourite.
