The Cajonico is an innovative percussion instrument that combines the advantages of the traditional cajón and bongos.

The Cajonico brings the playing surface closer to the percussionist, thereby making it easy to play comfortably while keeping a straight back, using the adjustable back strap we supply with our instruments.


There are two Cajonico models-The Classic Birch Cajonico and the Solid Mahogany Cajonico. The Classic Birch Cajonico is made out of the finest Scandinavian Birch Plywood. The Solid Mahogany Cajonico is made out of African Solid Mahogany of the highest quality. Both models can be built with any one of the 20 woods that that we use as tops.

The tops we offer are Bird’s Eye Maple, Mahogany, Maple, Olive, Walnut, Cherry, Beech, Ebony, Imbuya, Dark Imbuya, Wenge, Eucalyptus, Mapa, Golden Oak, Bubinga, Ash, Teak, Laurel Burl, Walnut Burl and Tamo Ash.

Each Cajonico is equipped with two snare mechanisms that can be lifted or lowered using a simple knob on both sides of the instrument which give it a wide range of sounds, and offer four playing positions of unique characteristics.

The Cajonico is divided via an internal separation made out of wood, so that the upper surface has an higher chamber that functions as a snare and is characterized by high frequency sounds, and a lower chamber that function as bass and are characterized by low frequency sounds.

The Cajonico’s sound port is equipped with a resonance tube that amplifies the lower frequencies significantly and gives the instrument a deep, powerful tone.

The sound port is located at the front of the instrument, and projects the sound towards the audience.

The Cajonico is equipped with a pair of adjustable, handmade Integral Castanets, attached to the sides of the instrument.

Each Cajonico ships in a handmade case with velvet lined interior and waterproof exterior, that matches the measurements of the instrument.

We gladly offer worldwide shipping, and make sure that our instruments will arrive safely to our clients.
