Product code: 51.CAJ139

This Cajón is not simply for show, or a fashion product as it may at first appear.

J.Leiva decided to make this transparent Cajón after multiple requests from customers and distributors.

This model is made from 100% Plexiglass, aside from the front-panel which is made from 3.2mm Russian Birch Wood.

When Leiva made the decision to manufacture the Omeya Crystal, they initially approached it from an acoustic material point of view and they discovered that Plexiglass is a very good material for sound, easily meeting J.Leiva's self-imposed high sound standards.

After developing, producing and inspecting the Omeya Crystal, Leiva can offer assurance that this is one of their superior models, and is certainly one of the better models in the market for studio recordings.

Pure, clean, brilliant, velvety, mellow and suitable for accompanying any kind of instrument and voice, this is an unique and special Cajón due not only to the design and materials used, but because of the sound; a new captivating sound for listeners and players.

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.
