    Hello-

    I saw a post on this website a while back about junior-sized cajons (bigger than the kids/toddler cajon, smaller than the adult cajon). Do you still sell these?

    Thanks,
    Lisa

    Hi Heidi! Huge fan, quick question: do you anything to treat the playing surface of your cajon? During the winter, it gets extremely dry and cold where I live. Would you recommend any type of oils to apply to it? Thanks!

    Heidi! I love you lessons! Thank you! I have a Meinl Subwoofer Bass Cajon that I want to mic. Is the best way to do it cutting a hole in the side and then putting a mic inside? I don’t want to destroy it, so I figured I’d find out first.

    Thanks, Heidi..!!!

    Hello Heidi,

    I am a self-educated djembé player and I discovered by chance this wonderfull instrument.
    Il realy enjoy by playing percussion.

    I saw your lessons videos on youtube and I realy liked them.

    So I decided to become a cajon player.

    And as I make wooden furniture, I decided to build myself my cajon.
    The varnish is now dry and I’m a hurry to play tonight with my choir.

    I want to thank you for your great videos.

      Hello There!

      It seems our shop is double charging you for shipping, basically it charges you for shipping an extra cajon for the bag too, so what we do at present is I refund you that extra shipping cost as we would post both items in one parcel. We are still updating our shop page and should have this little issue sorted soon, but for now, this is the way we work around it! Also we are going to be updating our shipping prices and make them a bit cheaper as we have now almost got a cheaper price on postage due to the number of cajons we are posting all over the world! If you want to, send me an email and we sort out a better price for you now so you can order one while they are still on sale.

    Heidi, I really like the way you look and play and was interested in buying the cruz cajon pro plus toro-model.I am a beginner cajon player and been researching different cajons.I really like the one you used on you tube teaching the rumba.does it come with a case?do you have a distributor in Los Angeles?How can I get it shiiped to my house in Covina California?Can you send me a price list in us dollars?
    Is your cajon dvd out? thank you for your time.

    • Heidi Joubert Post author

      Hello Ralph

      I sent you an email as well, regarding the Pro Toro model. I have a few videos on the rumba on youtube, which one are you referring to? It can come in a thick strong padded case, you can get those cases on my webshop as well, but the case is not included with the cajon price, you need to buy it separately. No distribution in LA yet, we are currently working on getting distribution out in the US by end 2015. We do however ship our products out worlwide, most of our cajons go to the USA (of chichi CA is one of the popular destinations to which we post out our cajons) and they always arrive safely with our amazingly secure couriers. Apologies for the prices not being in displayed in dollars on our webshop, we have yet to update and upgrade our webshop to display the prices in international currencies. The best way to determine the price in dollars is to check it out online (as the exchange rate varies and can change), simply google ‘convert’ and you will find many websites that does a simple currency conversion for free. DVD is begin worked on and will be out pretty soon. It has taken me quite a while, due to many tours and shows I had to do last year, when I do finally release it, it will be really excellent! 🙂 Sign up to my cajonbox newsletter to be the first to know when it gets released.

      Hope this helps!

    As the Pro Elite Toro model is currently out of stock I was looking at the Pro elite leon model, am i right in saying they are the same but the leon is natural colour with the toro has the black front plate?

      Hey Emma!

      Yes the Pro Elite Leon has a natural front plate and natural Chassis (body), whereas the Pro Elite Toro has a black wenge (black transparent so you can see the grain of the wood) front plate and black wedge chassis (body).

      We use Parcelforce, and we use priority postage, and yes, when we post out a cajon it is fully tracked with a unique tracking number (so you can check out the progress online yourself).

      Thank you for the very kind words about my playing! 🙂

    Hi Heidi – you’re website has really come along in the last while. Excellent.

    I have a mic question. I have been using a Shure 58 microphone to mic my cajon and put it though a board with effects and monitor with a pair of headphones. I am considering putting a studio in my new house as a jam area and buying two 100W PA speakers and a couple of Shure mics for vocals. Would you recommend getting a bass mic like the Shure Beta 52 Kick Drum Mic for the cajon and moving the 58 to vocal role? Thanks for any advice

          It costs £20 to drop in for both classes. I have no new cajons with me today, they only arrive on Thursday so I would not be able to sell one to you until Thursday.

Maybe there is a possibility to come to your school for some sort of a 1 week intensive workshop or something similar?

    Hi Heidi,

    I would like the ask more bout your cajon, is there a difference with Cruz and Toro besides the color? Thinking of buy a new cajon and donating my old one to my church.

    I have been watching your video on youtube and it’s very helpful. Practicing on it now. Thank you.

    Firstly i would like to know what kind of wood you are using on ur Cajon? my present Cajon is made from rubber wood and equiped with Snare string(Snare Cajon). Hope you can help me understand more the differences between String Cajon and Snare Cajon. I don’t know the difference about these 2 Cajon. Saw a gig one night at a local pub usingthe cajon as drum and was super interested and went up to him asking bout it. Without thinking much and bought one for myself.

    Hope to hear from you soon and God bless.

      Thanks for your enquiry. At the moment I am unsure about my stock and also about woods as we are making major improvement changes to my cruz cajon brand as well as expanding the range, and this coupled with the fact that we have been experiencing such a huge amount of orders and demand, it might yet be a little while… however, I must say that it will be well worth the wait, seeing that the cruz cajon will be better than ever before made of much better wood when we stock up again! :-)) Sign up to our newsletter to stay updated!

      Hello John

      The only cajon brand I wouldrecommend is my own signature line brand. I know it’s a bit above your price range, but not to worry, for the last month I have been working on adding a a few new models to my Cruz range, being the kids cajons and now also a really great quality, handmade, beginners cajon, which will be sold for a bit less than my current models. If you can hang in abit, I should have them out within the next month! 🙂

      One thing I can say is that it will be the best value for money you can get!

    Hi Heidi,

    My son, aged 9, is learning standard drums and has been for 2.5 years. However, it’s rather a solitary occupation and a friend suggested I take him along to a percussion workshop to enjoy another aspect and fire his enthusiasm a bit. First of all, is he too young to attend the Cambridge workshops and if not, would he need to be at the first one and come to all of them? It’s quite a late finish for him on a school night. Are you planning any daytime workshops in Cambridge?

    Many thanks!

      Hi Louis

      Good to hear from you. firstly, no your son is not too young, we have a few other youngsters in our class (it’s oretty mixed), there’s another 11 yr old, a 10 yr old, a 13 yr old, a 14 yr old and a 16 yr old. Seeing that he already plays drums, I am certain that he would definitely be just as good if not better on the cajon than most of the adult students! 🙂 He’d be most welcome, we started up yesterday, but you can enrol him from next week. If you want to do that, please send me an email at londoncajonschool@gmail.com and we’ll get him on the course!

      P.S about the saytime workshops, initially I wanted to do a seperate kids class at 4:30 pm on wed, but I need more interest, more kids interested to do that. I am working on it and it might just be that we split the class in about 2 weeks time once I have enough interest from the younger one’s. If you can promote it or just spread the news, that could definitely speed up this process! 🙂 I think I will get in touch with some of the musical directors in Cambridge who work with the kids, to see if they might be interested in letting people know about this cajon course)

      Many thanks!

    I’m really interested in learning the cajon, I think that it sounds so therapeutic. Problem is I’m only free every other week because I work on a two week Rota of earlys and lates. I wondered if you did private lessons? Or a fortnightly lesson?? I live on the outskirts of Cambridge.
    Thankyou

      Hey Sarah!

      Thanks for the msg! Why not drop in every 2 weeks to our Cambridge cajon class? I do not currently live in Cambridge so it makes it rather difficult to teach private classes, however, I could do it on Wed if you wanted to as I will be in Cambridge for the group class. Send me an e-mail and we can see if we can make it work somehow!

      Thanks!

      Hello Rajendra

      Thank you for the wonderful message, it is always great to hear from a composer 🙂
      As per where you can find a cajon, I am unsure about India and I was unaware it is so difficult to find one there, and thats why cajonbox is great, we post out cajones worldwide, so we can send one directly to your house in India! This is a great solution, and one of the reasons why we have started up our online shop, to give people the opportunity to get an excellent handmade cajon anywhere in the world! I hope this helps!

      I look forward to visitng India someday soon….

      Blessings

    Hello Heidi!

    Your work here is inspiring me to get a cajon for myself. I’m essentially a singer, but love tapping my fingers on tables and surfaces, so perhaps a cajon will be a much better surface to tap on! 🙂
    Although I was wondering how to figure out if playing the cajon is my thing – ergonomically speaking. Is there some way of trying out a cajon (ideally somewhere in Cambridge) before I make up my mind? (I sound like a pessimist, but I just don’t want to get something that may not be fit for me and ends up lying around in the house collecting dust)

    Los conocí una noche en Londres, bajo el London Eyes!! Y me encantaron, el sonido del cajón con tus manos fue impresionante. Nos llevamos “Calle Compas” y lo escuchamos y disfrutamos muchísimo acá en Buenos Aires.
    Me encantaría comprar el box rabioso o el arrabalero 🙂 Hacen o hicieron envíos a Argentina? Es posible?
    gracias Heidi

      Thanks for writing to me! The new and improved Kaira cajudoos almost ready to be listed and sold on our site, give it another week and we’d have them available, just doing all the final testing of the new Cajudoo range.

    Hello Heidi,

    I have never owned a Cajon before however, I am looking at purchasing the Cajon Cruz with piano strings but wanted to know if you have had issues with strings breaking and how you go about replacing them if they do.

    Also, I noted in one of your posts that a full wood version was about to be available. Is it available and how do I purchase via the website?

    Regards

      Hello Peter

      I personally never had a broken string, with one silly exception. I was tuning the cajon strings so tight that the string literally snapped. I was trying to get rid of a buzz but even though tuning the cajon can really imporve this, taping the problematic string/s down with tape is also a commonly used factor to stop a buzz…. so no, the breaking of strings is not really a thing that happens, unless you really do tighten the strings way too much than is needed. However, you can easily replace a broken string, but have to unscrew the frontboard in order to do so, it’s simple woodwork, however, like I said, broken strings is not really an issue to be worried about as long as you don’t overtune your cajon! If you are however concerned about this, then might I suggest you go for the non tunable Piano string system? There is no way the strings will break as firstly there is no tension tuning system, and also there is no need to adjust the strings.

      All our cruz` cajons are wood, however, our completely birchwood cruz cajon will probably be listed on our webshop within the next week or 2, we are currently taking it through a testing phase, once we are certain of the quality and tested the endurance, we’re ready to add it to our cajon shop. They sound really really great so if you can wait a bit, it will be well worth it! 🙂

      Purchasing a cruz cajon from cajonbox.com is easy! You simply find the product in the store, click on it, and then simply add it to your virtual shopping cart, and then you can choose to pay by paypal (even if you have not got a paypal account you can pay via paypal with your credit card) or you can choose to do a direct bank transfer into our cajonbox account. Really easy and safe!

      I sincerely hope this helps you, please let me know if you have other questions!

        Thanks Heidi,

        The piano string option is currently my preferred based on your comments however do you have video on the website or anywhere that shows the difference in sound between the piano string and guitar string Cajons?

        Regards

    Hi,
    I’m writing from Palermo (Italy). I’m interested in buying the “Prk cajon rabosio” https://cajonbox.com/cart/. I would like to know if it is available and the price with the cost of the spedition to Palermo (Sicily, Italy).
    How long do I need to wait for it, and how to pay?

    Waiting for your answer.
    Thank you. Bye

      Ciao Silvia!

      The price for the Prck Rabioso is £310 plus the postage to anywhere inside the EU which is £35, so all in all you are looking at £345, this inculdes postage & packaging. We post out the cajones fully insured, with a tracking number. Also at the moment there is a 1 week waiting period for any of our cajones because we are extremely busy with orders, especially with Chirstmas, but once we post it (approx 1 week after you ordered and paid for the cajon), it will take 1 – 2 weeks to reach you in Italy. So you are looking at about 2 weeks, max 3 weeks all in all.

      Hope this helps!

    I love your vids and have proven to be very usefull. I have decided to invest in a new Cajon and would like to know what the difference between Cruz and Prk. As far as I can see there are less screws on the front of the Cruz. Is there a massive difference in sound? Also I am torn between guitar or piano strings. Is it easy to tune the guitar stings and in the event of needing to replace them is this straight forward.
    I live in Norwich and would love to see FK in our city(Sounds great) once again thanks for the vids they are so helpful
    Peace

    Cheers,

    Hello Heidi.

    I’ve only just been introduced to the magical percussion instrument The Cajon Drum. I love them, as I’m not so great at playing the drums, but have very good rhythm. I’ve been hitting table tops for 45 years (to the annoyance of my family and friends) cajons seem so suitable for what I want to do.

    Do you have a monthly payment system? I want a Cruz Cajon with piano strings, as it sounds genius.

    I love your lessons they seem really relaxed and will help me improve my playing.

    Thank you.
    Ricky

    What are your thoughts on adding a high hat with the Cajon?
    I haven’t seen you use one yet…must be a reason…

      Hello Manny!

      Very interesting that you ask, I have not yet formally added Hi hat to my cajon kit, but I have been working on this for the past 3 months (on my cowbell pedal) and am about to invest in one, it just takes a lot of co ordination to play with a hi hat, and up till now I have just been developing mainly my cajon technique… but yes, Hi hat is great and it’s the next development for me as a percussionist! 🙂 I will probably be adding some vids with the hi hat and some ex within the next 2 months.

        Hello Manny and Heidi

        I’m using a hi hat with my set when I fx. play swing music. Either I play 2 and 4 with my foot or I use broomsticks (or sticks) to play the swingbeat on the hi hat. I also play the claves rhythm together with my congas. I think it’s great and it gives this metallic sound to the wooden/skin sound.
        I play a Yambú Peruano (conga cajon from Schlagwerk). It fits great into my set of congas and it’s better for my back 😉

        Thanks for your great videolessons.

      Hello Luke!

      Cajonbox shop do unfortunately not yet stock accersories, but I know of a pedal that you can find in some online store, for cajon, like a bass drum pedal but backwards, I think it’s called cajon pedal, here’s a link I just found on it, it looks pretty cool! http://www.schlagwerk.com/products/cajon-add-ons/cajon-pedal/

      Now I never tried it so I cannot vouch for it, but I have used a normal bass drum pedal on one of my cajones, positioning the cajon in front of me like a bass drum in a drum kit, and sitting on a chair or another cajon, that worked well, but this add on looks great, let u know how it goes if you do get it!! 🙂
      Hope this helps!
