Meet The Cajonico

An innovative percussion instrument,
which combines multiple advantages of the traditional Cajon and the Bongos into
a new, compact musical instrument, representing a paradigm shift in the Percussion world.

The Cajonico Models

There are 3 Cajonico Models – The Solid Mahogany Cajonico, the Solid Black Limba Cajonico, and the Solid Wenge Cajonico.

All 3 models can be built with any one of the woods which we use as Tops – Bird’s Eye Maple, Mahogany, Wenge, Olive, Black Limba, Cherry, Rosewood, Maple, Beech, Ebony, Ash, Golden Oak, Imbuya, Eucalyptus, and Teak. 

We also offer a few Exotic Woods as Tops – Laurel Burl, Walnut Burl, Bubinga, Sapele Pommele, Tamo Ash, and Amboyna Burl.

Solid Mahogany Cajonico -
Mahogany is a very warm sounding wood. It has a beautiful, full low end, strong Mid Range, and silky soft Highs. Bass Side offers a very deep tone, while the Snare Side can cut through the mix when needed.

Solid Black Limba Cajonico -
Black Limba is a very resonant wood. It features a great combination of warmth and balance, and offers fantastic definition and sustain. Bass Side has a wonderful open sound and lovely overtones, and the Snare Side has a delightful high end with sublime clarity.

Solid Wenge Cajonico -
Wenge is a very balanced wood. It has a powerful, deep, well defined low end, alongside a superb cutting High End with powerful projection. Great separation between the Bass and the Snare sides, in addition to lots of warmth and energy.

closer to the body

The Cajonico brings the playing surface closer to the percussionist, thereby making it easy to play comfortably while keeping a straight back.

ֿBass & Snare

The Cajonico is divided via an internal separation, which separates the upper surface to a lower pitched chamber which functions as a Bass Side and a higher pitched chamber which functions as a Snare side.

Low End

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

sound port

The sound port is located at the front part of the instrument, and projects the sound towards the audience / the musicians you are playing with.

Integral Castanets

The Cajonico is equipped with a pair of adjustable, Integral Castanets, attached to the sides of the instrument. The Castanets are made of the same wood as the body of the Cajonico.​
