    History of the Cajon
    The cajon is believed to have originated in Peru when the African slaves, brought to Peru from Angola, began using fruit crates as percussion instruments. Displaced from their homeland, the African slaves substituted cod shipping crates for their native drums. In Cuba, small dresser drawers were used for the same purpose. The instrument was refined and became an important part of Cuban and Peruvian music. Early usage of the Peruvian cajon was to accompany Tondero and Zamacueca (old version of Marinera) dances. Tapping knuckles on wooden tables may be considered a predecessor to the cajon.

    Today, the cajon is heard extensively in Andean, Cuban, and Flamenco music. It's steadily gaining popularity in all types of contemporary music and has become a favorite for "unplugged" sessions and is often used to accompany the acoustic guitar. Read More...

Tycoon 12" Cajon Ashko... March 4, 2013
Reviewer: Huut Owl from Broken Arrow, OK United States  
First, X8 Drums has the BEST customer service.  This was my first time buying from them and I'll be a return customer.

Really wonder why more people have not bought one of these?  Tycoon construction is solid.  Terrific timbre and consistent "woody" sound.  Love it!
