The Zambo is two Cajóns in one! Originally developed as part of a commission from London’s Ensemble Bash, the Zambo features the patented DG Snare Throw-off, which allows players to quickly engage or disengage the snares depending on the sound they want. 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 creating a mellower and earthier sound, in comparison to the steel-stringed Cajón. When the snares are disengaged, the Zambo takes on the sound of a typical Cuban Cajón, woody and almost bongo-like.
