Tanajura (tanajula) multi sound percussion box

Product overview

  • Tanajura Eléctrica - the Brazilian Cajon with sound pick-up system
  • Drumset and percussion set in one instrument!
  • Tanajura, a rarely heard word which in Brazil is not only the name of an ant species but also the affectionate nickname for women with pronounced feminine curves.
  • The strongly waisted tanajura looks quite like the body of a guitar and is also pretty much the same size
  • On the smaller part the tone sounds higher, on the larger one it sounds deeper.
  • The tanajura is light and can be used for any style.
  • The playing surfaces are made of solid wood giving it an especially high quality sound spectrum and a high sensitivity for vibrations.
  • On the inside of the instrument there are snare wires attached to produce the typical snare effect. You can take the wires out, which again will provide a completely new sound scape.
  • At the end of the instrument a grooved base is attached on which you can put down the tanajarua if you are not playing.
  • The handle of the tanajura is another great feature of this instrument: - you can attach other percussion instruments like a shaker or a small-sized cymbal to it.
  • You can play the tanajura seated, laying it on your lap, or upright stuck between your legs like a cajon. It weighs less than a kilo so principally any playing position is possible.
  • A Brazilian original! Versatile, multifunctional, with endless possibilities, ultra light and ideal for concerts, gigs, accoustic performances, rodas de Samba, playing on the beach with friends etc
  • Total length: 69cm
    Width of shell small side / big side: 26cm / 36,5cm
    Width side parts: 13,3cm
