An elegant sound
The Black Colibri is a professional electro-acoustic cajon with hi-defined treble and balanced bass.
Its design is an aesthetic variation of the Golden Colibri cajon, with the same tonal features and applicability.
Its classic black color, finished in lacquer with silver particles, evokes a stunning visual impact and provides a spectacular stage presence.
We have developed a 3.2mm matte ivory soundboard for the Black Colibri, providing a clear, sensitive treble and robust bass.
We chose a Spanish-style snare using guitar strings for a more classic and refined range of sound.
Choose your tone
Get your ideal tone through the adjustable string system, containing of 2 sets with 2 guitar strings in each set. Subtle adjustments to the side screws allow you to tighten or loosen the snare strings to get the sound you want out of you cajon, with more or less of a snapping sound in the snare and in the bass.

We constructed the body of the Black Colibri using 9mm plywood from tropical wood, applying 45º screwless glued joints between the instrument parts and finished the body closure with a high precision 5.5mm flexible Kapok wood backplate. Its front skin boasts a 3.2mm laminated plywood in natural noble wood ivory. The sleek classic black finish was done in acrylic lacquer, topped off with a high-protection 5% gloss Italian acrylic lacquer bursting with silver metallic particles, providing a stunning shiny reflection when exposed to direct light.
The corners slightly away from the front plate are a signature on all our cajones. This spacing allows you to explore sharp flan and slap sounds. This is a rather unique type of treble that renders a crisp resonating snap and greater dynamics when playing music.
The backplate gives off a very attractive sound similar to that laid-back vibe when bongo drums are played on the beach.
Plug & Play System
ABS Mic System
We have developed the innovative ABS Mic System, which is a practical and intelligent solution for electric pickups in cajones. Easy to remove, this system suspends the dynamic mic using elastic bands and absorbs any unwanted impact coming from the body of the instrument, freeing-up the microphone for a cleaner capture of the sound.
