Cajons are incredibly versatile percussion instruments...that you can sit on! With its Peruvian roots, cajons are a huge part of traditional and progressive Latin music. The range of organic sounds you can produce from one compact little box is pretty amazing! Like many other percussion instruments, cajons differ in construction and complexity. Some are basic, with a few resonant surfaces. Others offer many playing surfaces constructed from different source materials, like birch, black walnut, morado and more. Some cajons come equipped with features like internal snare wires and integrated electronics to plug into amps or PA's. Need some help in picking the appropriate cajon for you? Give us a call! At Drum Center of Portsmouth, we stock cajons from LP, Pearl, Tycoon, and Toca.
