Cajon Videos and Links
"Two words: Great product! The tonal range, road tested durability, playability, and comfort… I really can't put into words the quality of this drum day in and day out for me on the road. My Chavez CurveTop is my go-to cajon for any professional application."

The Chavez CurveTop Cajon™ in action!
Recorded at AudioLab in Garden City by Steve Fulton, we used an Audio Technica 4081 Ribbon mic placed about 6 inches away from the front of the cajon – just above center. We also placed a Sennheiser 421 about 4 inches from the back of the cajon sloping down so it pointed just below the drum’s sound port. The reverb on the cajon is actually a room mic set about 10-15 feet away from the drum.
