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.
