My father in law started working on building a new and better Cajon... compared to what musicans can buy in stores. Within a 7 month span he went from simply tinkering around, to finding what he wanted to craft and eventually getting Cajon's contracted out through store outlets in the city. He will be hitting up a few folkfest type festivals this upcoming summer and has also been in contact and sought out by a few well known and award winning Cajon musicians.(he's sold 35 to date). He's also found a couple really good artists to paint custom faceplates for the instrument as well, it's actually rather narly what he's been able to do with a simple thought and how he turned it into a small business. By now most people ask me "what in the blue hell is a cajon?". It looks like a box, all sides except for the face are constructed out of MDF and the faceplate is a thin sheet of plywood. You basically sit on it and start to play a beat on the faceplate, you can get pretty much most of the drum ranges you would get on a drumset ... but he decided to add an adjustable snare as well. You can tighten to add a raspy snare sound, or release the snare to make it sound like a bongo. There is also an option to have a pickup installed so it is playable through an amp. They look like so; I only know so much about Cajons lol, so if you're intrigued then you can find out more at www.heritagecajon.com .
