The Yaquí is perhaps one of the most unique cajóns within the DG line. Aside from the beautiful 2.5 mm Avio Birch front-plate (available in striking Makassar, Iris, and Rosewood veneers), the Yaquí features jingles attached to the center-post which vibrate lightly when bass-tones are played, adding an overall brightness to the tone. The sides and back of the instrument constructed of FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified birch and are finished with an environmentally friendly water-based scratch-resistant coating.
The Yaquí has a very modern “bass drum and brushed snare” sound which can be heard on many recordings, including offerings from flamenco star Miguel Poveda (“Arte Sano”) as well as supergroup UHF (“Bipolar”), both featuring cajón legend and DG artist Paquito González.
