The Cajon has become a standard
component of most percussion arrangements. In this case, however,
I wanted a cajon that would satisfy my specific needs. This is
why I designed and built the SuperCajon with the following features.
door allows for storage and transport of the basic drums
and accessories I use on most gigs.
Bongo Mount Internal
bongo mount and cinch strap for secure transport.
Snare Internal snare can be
turned on with recessed knob on side of cajon.
Mic Mount Recessed microphone
mount below sound hole allows me to mic the cajon's resonance
at the point of compression. The mount dispenses with the
usual microphone stand. Additionally, it allows the microphone
to remain perfectly positioned regardless of the movement
of the cajon.
Drum Throne Cajon has a padded
cushion and a high profile so that it can double as
a drum throne for playing congas, bongos, etc.
Handle Flush-mount handle for transport
Construction 1/2" Oak plywood
with rabetted purple heart edging and inlaid marquetry.
Head is 1/8" plwood. Blum euro hinges. Marine latches.
Ergonomic Design The
head is angled at 12˚in order
to make it easier to play.
