J. Leiva Professional Cajón Mezquita Design. Flamenco Percussion. Unique DTS tuning system. Includes bag.
Based near Cordoba in Moorish Spain, Pepe Leiva produces instruments for the traditional Spanish Cajon market as well as for the Celtic and Rock/Blues/Country music-influenced Western players. We have chosen to represent Leiva in the UK because the cheaper-end models sound substantially better than their price suggests and the top-end instruments are truly innovative and professional.
J.Leiva Cajons are made from wood sourced from an FSC accredited factory.
FSC's 'tick tree' logo is used on product labels to indicate whether products are certified under the FSC system. When you see the FSC logo on a label you can buy timber and other wood products, such as paper, with the confidence that you are not contributing to the destruction of the world’s forests.
