All AshiCajón™ have minimum three variable tones. The Conga and Tumba have the potential for five completely distinctive variable tones. Similar sound to a goat or lamb skin in some cases dependent upon the specie of wood. Although extreemly more difficult, it is possible to obtain more tones in the Quinto. AshiCajón™ sets are only sold as sets, and are to be considered "one of a kind" sets. All of the woods are specifically chosen to match only for that particular set. However, there may be some similarities between sets. This is only coincidental. All of the AshiCajón™ come with document of authenticity, originality and are numbered and signed by the designer/creator. Any custom design and built AshiCajón™ having inlay and marquetry specific to order will not be replicated if so designated by the client.
Any interest in solid, custom, or professional series, please contact the owner.
