Cruz Cajon

CRUZ CAJON

Cruz Cajon is Heidi Joubert’s  unique brand of outstanding cajons. Developed and designed by Heidi Joubert for the optimum playing experience. Each Cruz Cajon is delicately handcrafted to perfection in Spain with passion & love by our experienced artesan who takes pride in delivering outstanding professional instruments. Handmade with the finest birchwood, using only the highest quality wood and  materials for a perfect sounding cajon with a rich resonance & beautiful finish.

The making of the Cruz Cajon & quality control

After the handcrafting process, each cajon is finely tuned and then taken through a rigorous  testing phase, approved by our professional cajon team to ensure it matches the highest possible standard.

Excellent for your posture, playability & developing a good technique

The sound quality is superb and so is the playing action, with an extremely fast rebound action that makes it effortless to play. The bass “sweet spot” is situated as high as possible, just below the “snare” to encourage & retain a healthy posture, as well as developing the correct technique as you play the cajon. It has a rageously loud bass with a beautiful resonance & a neat, crisp attack on the highs with a distinct separation between the snare and bass sounds. Fabulous for acoustic playing, miced-up playing and recording! It is really almost effortless to get a great sound out of the cruz cajon!

Making a difference with our charity

A part of the profits from all our cajon sales go towards our Skierlik Community Project, a charity set up by Heidi Joubert in collaboration with a local pastor & his team, based in the informal settlement of Skierlik in South Africa. They dedicate their lives to making a difference in their community. The charity helps children & families living in the most poverty stricken conditions in the local & surrounding areas. The project offers feeding programs, education & skill training and a safe space with rehabilitation for children who are abandoned, abused or neglected, and helps get them off the streets and out of a life of violence & crime.  Find out more & get involved here.

    Trying to actually figure out where you are in Spain; Barcelona? I am a cajon player residing in the Philippines where customs’ charges can be demonic. Wanted to consider a quick flight to the Cruz factory to choose and buy a cajon onsite. Can you please advise? I would love to buy remotely from here and have reasonably shipped here, but can’t seem to sort my options. Not sure how to proceed. Thanks in advance for any love you’ll toss my way!
    Gratefully Yours,

      Hello Robbie!
      Thanks for writing to me! At the moment we don’t do any public visits to our current artesan workshop in Spain, however, we are working on setting up a Cruz cajon store and artesan workshop in the UK, hopefully open to the public in 2018. We do post out to the Philippines, I believe customs won’t charge as much as a flight and travel trip to the UK or Spain anyway! If you were eager to visit our artesan shop, perhaps it would be best to wait till we have our new artesan workshop set up in the UK, which is going to be brilliant! We are at the moment working on the plans and setting up our store and I will update my blog site with more specific times etc once I have these details!
      Hope this helps, and again thank you for visiting my website!

    Hi, Heidi! I’m interested in starting to learn the cajon. I was wondering what Cruz Cajon would be the best choice for a complete beginner like me with no prior experience.
    Thanks in advance,

      Hello Kyla!
      First of all, welcome to the cajon world! it;s a great instrument and I assure you will love each step of the way! Thanks for visiting my website too!
      As per the Cruz Cajon, our Pro Cruz Cajon was specially developed to be the perfect choice for beginners (and pro players) because of the ease of playing the cajon. It helps promote a great posture, and the correct technique, as the bass is situated high on the cajon and it is very easy to get a great sound out of the Pro cajon even if you never played cajon before! There is also a very neat separation between the bass and the highs which will help you to improve much faster than on any normal ‘beginners’ cajon on the market or in shops. We specially designed this range to be really easy to play, great to help you learn the correct technique and hand placement from the start and at the same time, it is also a cajon for life, they are amazing handmade instruments with a lot of quality! 🙂
      Hope this helps!

    I ordered the Cruz Cajon pro plus toro. All I can say is I’m so glad I made the right choice.
    After trying lots of the other well known cajon brands I was worried about ordering a Cajon I hadn’t tried out. I needn’t have worried because the Cruz cajon was amazing right out of the box and sounds so much better than the ones I had tried before. The bass and snare are perfect and the clarity between them are so clear. With the lightest of taps you have a great sounding Cajon and the rebound you feel from the front panel talks for itself. The bass is nice and high up so no bending over trying to find a sweet spot. It’s all there in fingers reach. This is the best Cajon for its price out there and actually designed by a cajon player not a marketing brand.
    If your thinking of buying a Cruz cajon trust me you won’t go wrong. Dean Young

    I got my Cruz Cajon Pro-Plus a few weeks ago and am really enjoying it. It’s so well constructed and the organic sounds are amazing. Recently, I was watching a guitar player use a Digitech Effects pedal (it has 70 effects) and decided to experiment a little bit by rigging the Cruz Cajon to work with the effects pedal. I put a Cajonport into the rear hole. Then I attached a Myersco pick up mike directly to the inside of the Cajonport. (The mike has a suction cup so it’s no effort.) I then plugged the mike into the Digitech pedal. The whole set up took less than two minutes. WOW! The variety of sounds was awesome. It even worked with the WAH pedal that is part of the Digitech set up. If you have access to guitar effects pedals, give this a go. I guarantee you’ll look up after about five hours and wonder where the time went. First though, get yourself one of the Cruz Cajons. You will be very glad you did.

    I hope that the cajons get back on track. Mine is such a delight to play. I think that you understated the bass. I recommend that customers check with their dentist to make sure that they don’t have loose fillings prior to playing. Don’t play the cajon in front of a symbal rack or precious glassware. It’s not just the volume that I like. The tone has to be played to be appreciated. Everyone should get at least one of these but two are better. One of each.
