Latin Percussion (LP) launches the highly-versatile Wood Tapa. It’s a new and innovative way to retrofit any existing snare drum with a cajon-like top and textured top surface that can be played with the hands, brushes or other soft implements.

The revolutionary LP Wood Tapa instantly transforms most 14” snare drums into a super sensitive, snare cajon with an authentic, woodsy cajon tonality. Simply replace the batter side drum head and counter hoop with the LP Tapa using existing tension rods, and the transformation is complete!  Rounded edges offer ultimate comfort when playing with hands as part of hybrid percussion or acoustic drum set ups.

The Wood Tapa is constructed from Baltic Birch and designed to fit most 14” snare drums and available in 8-lug (LP2414-08) or 10-lug (LP2414-10) options.

Drummers and percussionists are always looking for new and different sounds. The Wood Tapa gives snare drums an alternative sound and widens the instrument’s range of playing possibilities.

LP Cajon Designer Josh Trask comments, “This is the perfect way for drumset players to realize that authentic cajon sound as part of their kit.  And the Tapa sounds different on a range of snare drums, so players can experiment with creating their own signature sound using their favorite drums.”
