'Is possible to improve? Always'! This is the mantra of J.Leiva Percussion. They are always looking to improve as much as possible; in constant pursuit of product excellence.

Just take a look at the new Omeya EVO model.

Based in their best-seller, the Omeya, Leiva have tried to improve several aspects: ergonomics, comfort, aesthetics, sound and of course the actual front plate playing system.

This is a brand new Cajón concept. J.Leiva present the evolution of their Omeya model.

This Cajón has been developed to take on the following properties:

- Integrated Walnut Frame.

- Frame inlay front panel. 100% replaceable.

- Ergonomic seat

- Round corners for maximum comfort.

The most remarkable new property is the Walnut frame-inlay construction. This produces a very round corner instrument, without edges or flanges. In addition, the front plate can easily be replaced.

Leiva have managed a 30% increase in power over the standard Omeya, with pleasing dynamics.

This is a very subtle Cajón that can be be played by experts and beginners alike. With the slightest touch, the instrument sings.

Handcrafted in 12mm Russian Birch with a front plate made of the same material (3.2mm).

Ergonomics, power, subtlety, versatility, delicacy and a dynamic presence are the characteristics of the new Omeya EVO II:

Tech Specs:

48cm x 30cm x 32cm.

12mm Russian Fenolic birch plywood, with integrated mecanised Walnut. Tandem seat in Natural 10mm Rubber. Special Rubber feet with reduced contact area, and disconnection from the floor.

D.T.S. or Direct Tuning System with six guitar strings in a V form, localised vertically and tunable from outside the Cajón without the need for keys or other tools.

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.
