History of the Cajon Drum

Cajon drums are drums presently crafted out of wood, but the Cajon drums of yesteryear were in the form of simplistic boxes, tiny drawers from dressers or crates for fish. The actual term "Cajon" is derived from the Spanish language and when translated means "box." As time passed, the Cajon drum was reshaped and reconstructed to appear as it does today: a six sided wooden box with a whole on one side of it, usually the back side. The wood utilized on five of the wood panels in Cajon drums is crafted out of 3/4 inch wood: typically white wood, or pine wood. The last side of the Cajon drum box is crafted from plywood material.

Cajon drums have a history that can be traced back to central and West African slaves from Peru, as well certain regions in Cuba; it is believed that the drum was created in the 1800s on the coast of Peru, and in just five decades time the Cajon drum became a widely used and widely appreciated instrument. At the turn of the century, people began to experiment with the shape of the Cajon drum to change the sounds that the instrument would produce when played.

This instrument is now identified with Afro/Cuban music such as the famous rumba, as well as Afro/Peruvian style music. The Cajon drums that were first used in regions of Peru include wooden boxes or crates that were commonly utilized for harvesting fruit. Slaves in Africa relied on the crates as a drumming tool and later developed the Cajon drum from the simplest fruit harvesting wood crate design.

Surprise, right out of the box. March 22, 2011
Reviewer: Hand Drummer from Summit Hill, PA United States  
After a two week delay (back order) I received my Toca Cajon and case in perfect condition.  At first, when I opened the box and removed the protective plastic bag from the cajon, I thought there was a mistake.  I thought I got an upgrade or different model than I ordered.  The finish on this piece is amazing.  Believe me when I tell you that NO online photos, not even the ones on the Toca website, do this instrument justice.  The honey burst color is super rich and beautiful and the clear coat is as shiny as glass!
Now the sound...GREAT! The larger size allows this cajon to pump out more base than similar models from other manufacturers.  Its double snares create substantially more sound than the single brush found in the Meinl cajon I played in a store.
After a bit of tweaking with the upper corner screws, I am able to get really great "Cracks" and slaps.
All in all a great value from a company who makes instruments to "Play!"
