The cajón is now the most popular percussion instrument and it’s used in a variety of music genres.
The word cajón means “box” in Spanish, and it is said that the origin of the cajón came from slaves in Africa who were taken to Peru started to hit drawers and simple wooden boxes in place of a drum.
The history of cajón is relatively new and it has become a standard instrument in flamenco music since it was first brought to Spain around 1970.

This time I’m going to introduce the 5 most popular cajóns at Sound House, along with a demo on how to play it. These cajóns are especially recommended for those who are starting cajón, so please check them out!

The cajón is an instrument that anyone can easily start because all you have to do is to just hit it in order to make a sound. The instrument also only has two tones. First, hit the area with the ① in the picture with five fingertips to make a bass sound. It should sound with a lower pitch like a bass drum. Next, tap around the ② in the image to make a snapping sound using your fingertips which should produce a higher pitch. Just keep hitting it to the beat of a song using both hands. Now you must be feeling like a musician!

PLAYTECH / PCJ-50 Cajón

The PCJ-50 has always been the most popular cajón for its price. This one uses a type of wires that are also found in most cajóns, and the biggest feature is that these wires can easily be adjusted with the included hex wrench. Being able to change the tension of the wires is a really nice selling point for this low of a price. Since the PCJ-50 uses birch wood, which is the standard wood for this instrument, it has gained popularity from percussionists from a wide variety of genres. It’s cheap, but the size is the same as the standard cajón, so it’s also perfect for full-scale performances. I’m sure you can use a PCJ-50 for a long time.
