Latin Percussion expands the Mona Tavakoli Signature MT Box Cajon range
8th August 2023 – Oxnard, (CA) Latin Percussion (LP) is delighted to launch the LP® Mona Tavakoli Signature Lil’ MT Box Cajon (LP1443L) and announce an upgrade to the LP® Mona Tavakoli Signature MT Box Cajon (LP14431), first launched in 2018.
The improved LP® Mona Tavakoli Signature MT Box Cajon (LP14431) is now made from hand-crafted nine-ply Birch wood with a four-string factory tuned front and Peruvian-style back birch sound boards to give a more aesthetically appealing look and enhanced tone. The sizing remains the same at 18” x 11 ¾“ x 12”, and features LP’s Rapid Response Curve sound boards that enhance the separation of the bass and slap tones and Mona’s proprietary graduated three sound hole design.
The new LP® Mona Tavakoli Signature Lil’ MT Box Cajon (LP1443L) is based on the larger LP14431 and is a key element of Mona’s continuous passion to get more people playing drums and percussion! Its reduced dimensions of 11 ½ ” x 7 5/8” x 10” make it ideal for the smaller player. It is crafted from environmentally friendly eco-board with a Birch soundboard and fitted with a snare wire. Each of the non-playing surfaces of the cajon are brightly painted in red, blue, green, and yellow, which make it stand out in a crowd. Both models are decorated with Mona Tavakoli’s MT logo.
Drummer, percussionist, singer, and performer Mona Tavakoli is best known for recording and touring with Jason Mraz for over a decade. She co-founded the Rock n’ Roll Camp for Girls in Los Angeles and is also a founding member of the all-female rock band, Raining Jane.
