CajonsThis small but hugely popular wooden box - the Cajon. Because Cajon is nothing more than a wooden box which is played with the hands. They can also be played with brushes, offering a drum like sound. Bass Cajons are used very often with a foot pedal similar to a kick drum. Other relatives are the Cajita (Tone wood sound) and the Cajinto that is very reminiscent of a snare drum.
