Cruz cajon is Heidi Joubert’s bespoke signature cajon line handmade in Spain by our passionate and experienced artisan who takes pride in delivering outstanding professional instruments made with the utmost love and care.
Cruz cajon Pro Elite is made of ‘Finest russian birchwood’ and has a distinct rich resonance that accentuates its beautiful tone. It is extremely sensitive and responds to the lightest touch, and when played with full force and power the Pro Elite is sure to blow you away with it’s powerful sound! Very versatile with a range of dynamics. Sharp top and warm, deep bass with a very neat separation between the highs and lows.
This is currently our most popular cajon, and is one of the best cajons on the market for it’s price/quality/sound.
Made with the finest birchwood and perfectly finished for maximum quality and sound, ensured endurability for years to come. This cajon is pure quality and luxury. It is effortless to get an awesome sound out of this outstanding instrument. Now with a new and improved tuning system to prevent buzzing and rattles, the cajon features 4 guitar strings which are seperately tunable with 2 very easy to use tuning knobs…. no need for allen keys!
NEW IMPROVEMENTS MADE IN 2018:
More rounded corners in the front top for more comfort when playing and a sleek beautiful finish.
The Pro Elite also now has an added internal ‘sound carpet’ that adds a neater seperation between the
bass and the highs.
It also makes recording the cajon easier as it
adds to a neater overall sound with less feedback, also useful for
live situations with mics and a sound system. The sound carpet can be
partially pulled out through the soundhole in the back to create a
different sound so it adds to the variety of sounds you can get from
Our tuning system has also been improved, the tuning knob
controls is now no longer in the back but on the bottom on the
frontside of the cajon so you can easily tune the strings (tighten or
loosen strings) in playing positon without having to get off the
cajon to do so! Very useful for that situation live onstage, you can tune it even as you play!
These changes improves on the sound and practicality of the cajon. I am certain you
will really enjoy these ‘upgrades’!
The making of the cruz cajon
After the handcrafting process, each cajon is finely tuned and then taken through a testing phase and approved by our professional cajon team (Heidi personally plays, checks and tunes each cajon herself, sometimes she packs them herself too 🙂 to ensure it matches the highest possible standard, no other cajon in this price range can match this quality or standard!
Outstanding Handmade instruments and great for your posture and developing a good technique
The sound quality is superb and so is the playing action, with an extremely fast rebound action that makes it almost effortless to play. The bass “sweet spot” is situated as high as possible, just below the “snare” for the optimum posture when playing the cajon. It has a rageously loud bass with a beautiful resonance and a neat, crisp attack on the highs. The separation between the highs and the lows is very neat and distinct, needless to say these are fabulous for live playing, acoustic playing and recording! It is really almost effortless to get a great sound out of the cruz cajon!
