Tycoon Percussion TK Box Cajon is constructed of hardwood with a Spruce playing surface and internal snare wire. Because the box cajons are made by hand from natural wood, the hues of the spruce may vary. The color shown above is accurate, a dark burgundy finish.

Our Tycoon Percussion Cajons are carefully selected and tested to meet the needs of the most discriminating professional percussionist. We guarantee you’ll love 'em or we'll refund your money. Perhaps you haven't heard of the name 'Tycoon', however the Tycoon line of Cajons goes head-to-head with brands such as 'Meinl', 'Latin Percussion' and 'Fat Congas'.

Tycoon percussion has been making top quality percussion instruments for over 20 years and only recently have started to make a presence in the U.S market.

Tycoon cajons are meticulously constructed and each one is hand-made. When placed in the hands of a capable percussionist, the Cajon can open up a variety of pitches and timbres, complementing flamenco and various Latin genres. The Cajon is one of today's most popular percussion instruments because it very easy to play, and provides a great feel and rhythmic foundation to any musical situation. It is fun to experiment with and is popular in literally every musical genre as it is often used during unplugged gigs or softer songs to replace an entire drum kit.

Traditionally, cajons are played by sitting on the padded top of the box while slightly leaning backwards. The front plate is struck with the bare hands. Various playing techniques help to create different sounds ranging from deep bass tones to cutting highs and slaps.

    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...
