Description

CRUZ CAJON

Cruz Cajon is Heidi Joubert’s  unique brand of outstanding cajons. Developed and designed by Heidi Joubert for the optimum playing experience. Each Cruz Cajon is delicately handcrafted to perfection in Spain with passion & love by our experienced artesan who takes pride in delivering outstanding professional instruments. Handmade with the finest birchwood, using only the highest quality wood and  materials for a perfect sounding cajon with a rich resonance & beautiful finish.

The making of the Cruz Cajon & quality control

After the handcrafting process, each cajon is finely tuned and then taken through a rigorous  testing phase, approved by our professional cajon team to ensure it matches the highest possible standard.

Excellent for your posture, playability & developing a good technique

The sound quality is superb and so is the playing action, with an extremely fast rebound action that makes it effortless to play. The bass “sweet spot” is situated as high as possible, just below the “snare” to encourage & retain a healthy posture, as well as developing the correct technique as you play the cajon. It has a rageously loud bass with a beautiful resonance & a neat, crisp attack on the highs with a distinct separation between the snare and bass sounds. Fabulous for acoustic playing, miced-up playing and recording! It is really almost effortless to get a great sound out of the cruz cajon!

Making a difference with our charity

A part of the profits from all our cajon sales go towards our Skierlik Community Project, a charity set up by Heidi Joubert in collaboration with a local pastor & his team, based in the informal settlement of Skierlik in South Africa. They dedicate their lives to making a difference in their community. The charity helps children & families living in the most poverty stricken conditions in the local & surrounding areas. The project offers feeding programs, education & skill training and a safe space with rehabilitation for children who are abandoned, abused or neglected, and helps get them off the streets and out of a life of violence & crime.  Find out more & get involved here.

    Hello Heidi, Every time I watch you play on Youtube I am blown away. You are an amazing musician and as genuine as they come. I’ve always wanted one of your Cajons, but I didn’t know if I could justify the purchase as a beginner. COVID-19 has taught me that we must continue onward to our best selves. There is no more important pursuit. I’m ready now. I’m hoping your people in Spain are still making the Cruz Pro Elite Leon model and sending them to London for you to test, tune and send to the USA. Please let me know how long lead times are now. I’d like to order one this month. Hope to hear from you soon. Thank you!

    My cajon arrived in excellent condition thanks to the sturdy packaging. Unboxing the cajon; its a true work of art and the sound is SO nice. I have not played a cajon before, but the best way I can describe the bass is rich yet ‘tight’. The upper snare portion of the cajon is also a ‘tight’ and just the perfect amount of sizzle in the snare. What i mean regarding ‘tight’ is not loose and echoey sound but a very precision sound that helps to clearly define each beat. Looking forward to Heidi’s upcoming teaching products and hopefully being a ‘patron’ ;-). Thanks again Heidi. Scott.

    Hello Heidi!
    My Cajon arrived safely in the US.
    Just wanted to tell you about my first impressions of my Cruz Cajon Pro Elite Leon .
    She’s beautiful!
    She has a lovely fundamental tone, just tapping her from the sides.
    Moving to the front board, her depth is released!
    It was easy to find the sweet spot between the highest position for good bass and the guitar string snare sounds.
    Another reason I went with your cajon is the distance is way closer to the top than any other I’ve briefly tried out.
    Playing her on “the sides” is yet another voice she has!
    Yes, I watched your vid on this! “Horseflies” LOL
    Thank you also for your lovely words during all our communications!
    I tell everyone the story of my Cajon coming to life. Handcrafted in Spain by your Artisan, shipped to you in England for your inspection, hand tuning, by playing her and then finally packing and shipping by you yourself!
    Doesn’t get any more “Hands On” and TLC than that!
    I feel that you are not just someone I bought an item from, but a friend!
    Heidi! You are the Best and a delight!
    Truly,
    Greg

    Love this cajon!
    I bought a cheaper Meinl cajon in an Amazon flash sale and thought I’d got a bargain. But, though it looked OK, it was nasty and had no depth to the bass and zero snare sound (other than a rattle on the bass). So I sent it back and decided you get what you pay for. This cajon is a thing of beauty with deep desonant bass tones and great slap and snare at the top. Yes it’s a bit more money, but worth every penny. Thanks Heidi!

    Hi there, Heidi!
    This model Cajon is the finest! I have been tapping, pounding and drumming on things most of my life, snare, to timpani, to jazz kit, as a my attempt to express myself. The Elite Pro has taken my expression to the next level. I well tell everyone about its high quality, sensitivity, resonant tone and amazing bass! The bass “sweet spot” is in the perfect upper high place, unlike a few others I have bought or tried. I am amazed in you and your sincere support of this instrument in the commercial world we live in. You bring the expression of drumming to so many, who could not otherwise enjoy. Thank you!
    Cheers to you always!
    Len

    Dear Heidi,
    received my wonderful Cajon two weeks ago, and I’m absolutely thrilled with it. Having had to finish work through ill health 5yrs ago, the Cajon and your inspiration has brought nothing but joy into my life. I try and practice every day body allowing and I’m learning something new after every lesson on You Tube.
    Thank you very much,
    Warm regards,
    John.

    I received my Cruz Cajon savely in the Netherlands and… I’m in love with it! It looks great, feels great and it sounds AMAZING! Communication about the order was perfect, the cajon was carefully packaged, great service; as a thank for my patience I got 2 Fernando’s kitchen cd’s. Love it! It was worth waiting.
    MANY many thanks for this awesome instrument!
    Sanne
