Tate-Gue Moreaux 18 - 2.0" Wide Keys (Father Moreaux)

SKU: 0012

The Cubajos with 18 Keys/laminate-metal strips of 1-1/2” to 2” width belong to other category: gravest sound similar to the Upright Counter bass. Within electric lamellophone Bass “Cubajos”, these are the basses with the gravest sound, the dipper sonority; town crier and the higher amplitude of the sound pressure waves. The voice of these Cubajos evoke the palpitation and thickness of the vibrant jungle, the happy and carnival like call of its blessed history. The “Tate-Gué Moreaux” Cubajos have the immense desire to roar and impact the musicians as well as the dancers as the marimbula did with its entrance to the Cuban capital at the beginning of the XX century. With the gravest sound of the Marímbula these Lamellophone Electric Bass “Tate-Gué Moreaux” would like to conquer at new all for whom would like to take part in this journey together and conquer the world.I'm a product description. I'm a great place to add more details about your product such as sizing, material, care instructions and cleaning instructions.


    • Santiago Moreaux Jardines

The Cubajos 18 Keys/laminate-metal strips of 1-1/2” to 2” width have a powerful sound and are named “Tate-Gué Moreaux” ("Father, Papa Moreaux") as a sincere and simple homage/tribute to this multi-facets musician, leader of musical groups, radial personage, composer, author and friend from Guantanamo, Cuba. Mr. Moreaux was the inspiration so this author dedicated the necessary time to transform the traditional acoustical marimbula into an electrical marimbula, like Moreaux dreamed that one day it would happen; therefore the birth of the Cubajo.
