Schlagwerk EVO models mark the pinnacle of Schlagwerk's evolution as Cajon manufacturer. Many players asked for a Cajon with more crisp crackling snare sounds that are audible even at the slightest touch, yet deliver a powerful base that is clearly separated from the snare. Schlagwerk went deep into every single component and construction of Cajons, and uncvered critical advancement to enhance that scope of sound. This lead to the EVO series behold the benchmark in Cajon sound.

The body is made from solid, smoked Alder top and bottom and SPL sides, Beech back and Gabon front. Our proprietary SC6 front is fixed by glue and screws, ratio 50/50, typically La Perù. That playing surface is partially densified through to enhance percussive sensitivity. This treatment delivers unprecedented attack and control. While the Alder/SPL body increases controlled bass, the 2 x 4 by Cajon wires produce swooshing rich yet ultra-precise snare. Each section of the wires is individually tuneable. All of this make the visual impressive "La Perù" Evo a very versatile instrument, suitable for any style of music. To take it one step further we have created an absolute breath-taking version - The EVO Walnut "deluxe". The SC6 front board is refined with hand-picked, one of a kind, smoked Walnut veneer. This does not only take the visual appearance to another level but also adds more warmth and color to the overall sound, taking away some of the attack but not the sensitivity.

SC6 is a Schlagwerk proprietary material development for playing surfaces with brilliant sound properties. A substrate that is highly responsive, thin, yet extremely tough to withstand high impacts. Ideally laminated with sound enhancing veneers. Used in many of our advanced models.
