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 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.
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 IS BETTER THAN EVER!
The body of all our Pro Models are now made with Birchwood, a much higher quality wood than the MDF used for cajons in this price range. The body is a natural light wood colour due to the new wood used for the body, the frontboard of the Pro Leon remains the same natural wood colour with black Logo designed by Heidi Joubert. We have also improved the string tuning system immensely, you can tune all the strings from one single 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!
