German manufacturer with handmade percussion instruments which has been active since the 1980’s. In 1986, the cajon was first introduced to Schlagwerk by Peruvian percussionist Freddie Santiago. Schlagwerk founder Gerhard Piel was the first manufacturer in Europe to appreciate the potential of the instrument. The cuttings of Schalgwerk became popular and the company quickly expanded into one of the most popular cajonmakers in the world. As a result, they have been able to innovate, which has led to various innovations in the cajon world such as the ‘2inOne’ with spiral technology and the ‘Fineline’ cajons with specially designed strings.
Cajonwebshop.com has made a selection of 4 lines from Schlagwerk: La Peru, Agile, 2inOne and Fineline. What makes Schlagwerk special is the innovation and the superior German craft quality. Latin American passion in a German jacket!
