A Cajon (pronounced 'ka.HONE') is a box shaped drum played by slapping the front face with the hands. Modern Cajons are often used to accompany the acoustic guitar and are showing up on worldwide stages in contemporary music.
When playing a cajon the player sits on the box tilting it an angle while striking the head between their Knees. Cajons have several screws at the top for adjusting percussive timbre and some Cajons sport rubber feet. Cajon players can also play the sides with the top of their palms and fingers for additional sounds.
Cajons are beginning to gain popularity through musicians such as Fleetwood Mac, The Dixie Chicks, Nada Surf, Jennifer Lopez, Ben Harper, Shop our selection of Cajons below.
