Put the wave on your lap and start to surf! La Ola drum is a new generation of a hybrid percussion instrument that produces many sounds of Latin music – from Samba to Salsa.

Cajon 2inOne

Cult Guarantee: This black beauty has it all – the lovely Macassar design surface produces a surprisingly strong bass, and its special resonance box made of SPL (= sonic projection ligneum) represents a new dimension in cajon construction. But that‘s not all: the extremely rich snare sound generated by the 84 strands definitively ensures its poleposition in the 2inOne-Series. “deluxe” – for eyes and ears!
