NAMM COVERAGE: Pearl Releases Jingle Cajon
More from Pearl’s showcase at NAMM in Anaheim, CA. They’ve released a Jingle Cajon as part of their onslaught of gear. Looks pretty interesting to me. I like how this instrument sounds in my head. Looking forward to getting my hands on one. Cool video at Pearl’s website.
Designed in conjunction with L.A. session percussionist Pete Korpela, Pearl’s new Jingle Cajon offers four different sound possibilities in one package. The fiberglass body adds superior strength, and the super responsive snare system offers sensitivity unmatched by other brands. Simply twist open the Brazilian Platinella-style jingles and a new world of sonic options open up, as you instantly sound like two percussionists playing simultaneously. Open up the Stainless Steel tambourine jingles for a whole other jingle option, or combine the two to sound like an entire percussion section. Beautifully finished in our exclusive Carubinga exotic wood finish, Pearl’s Jingle Cajon will surely open your eyes and ears to an arsenal of sound never thought possible from a single Cajon.
