Versatile Dual-zoned Percussion Instrument

Being a dependable percussionist means having the right tools for the gig. That's why the dual-surfaced Meinl Hybrid Slap-Top X Cajon gives you both bongo sounds and cajon sounds in the same laptop instrument. Play a samba groove on the bongo side and switch to drum-and-bass cajon rhythms at a moment's notice. The Slap-Top's Baltic birch box has a resonant sound and durability to take abuse from the heaviest hitters. Sweetwater percussionists were impressed with the original Slap-Top cajon from Meinl and believe that the X design carries on in the same tradition with value and convenience for the gigging musician.

Cajon and bongo sounds from the same instrument

Placing the Slap-Top between the knees and orienting the oval ports upward unlocks the bongo sound, which mimics the response of a real calfskin bongo with higher-pitched slaps toward the edges and a deeper thump from the center. Inverting the Slap-Top delivers a cajon-like response, with internal wires for a woody snare smack and a large center port for low-mid punch.

Meinl Percussion Hybrid Slap-Top X Cajon Features:
  • Dual-surfaced laptop percussion instrument
  • Cajon sounds from one side
  • Bongo sounds from the other
  • Change between sounds in an instant
  • Rests securely between the knees
  • Durable Baltic birch body has a fast matte finish
  • Internal snare wires deliver a cajon slap
  • Forward-facing ports for stage projection and mic access
Take versatile percussion sounds to the gig with the Meinl Percussion Hybrid Slap-Top X Cajon!
