The De Gregorio Zambo Cajon is two cajons in one. The Zambo features the DG Snare Throwoff which allows players to quickly engage or disengage the snares depending on the sound they would like to achieve, this massively diversifies the cajon. Not only that but the snare tension can be fine tuned via two small screws located opposite the throw-off knob. The snare mechanism itself features nylon-wound strings for a sound which is mellower and more earthy in comparison to steel-stringed cajons. All of these features massively diversify the cajon and you can really hone the tone that you wish to achieve, when the snares are disengaged, the Zambo takes on the sound of a traditional and typical Cuban cajon, which consists of a very woody, almost bongo like tone. The Zambo is constructed of birch plywood with a 3-ply, 3 mm birch front-plate for projection and sensitivity.
