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, who also happens to love music, particularly percussion and plays flamenco cajon himself! 🙂
Our Cruz Cajon Pro plus produces a superbly professional sound at a starter price. It has beautiful tone, with a neat separation between the highs and lows, and unlike other cajones in this price range which lack a lot of low end, it has a surprisingly deep and powerful bass. Sharp top and warm deep bass.
The Pro Plus has an extra separate tuning knob to individually tune each guitar string (which runs up and down the frontboard of the cajon on the inside). The Plus has 2 doubled guitar strings which are doubled up.
This is certainly one of the best cajons on the market for it’s price, quality and sound.
Handcrafted with the best ‘Finest russian birchwood’ and perfectly finished for maximum quality and sound, ensured endurability for years to come. This cajon is pure quality! It is effortless to get an awesome sound out of this outstanding instrument, even as a total beginner. Ease of playbility, rich tone and seperation of the basses and highs are effortless to achieve with this ‘box’ drum.
NOW WITH NEW IMPROVEMENTS, THE PRO Plus IS BETTER THAN EVER!
With the new improved string tuning system, you can tune both doubled strings from its own individual tuning ‘knob’, now situated on the bottom front of the cajon, so you can easily adjust your tuning (tighten or loosen the strings for more or less ‘snare’ sound) in playing position while you are sitting on the cajon instead of having to get off the cajon top tune it from behind. This is very useful especially in a live situation while you are playing!
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!
