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.

  1. Chad Martinock

    This Cajon is a well designed, great sounding instrument. It’s got plenty of sensitivity, and a surprising low end punch with a large sweet spot. It’s comfortable to play, easy on the hands, and it has a wonderful tone, it’s very musical. Highly recommended, I feel like you get your money’s worth and then some, the features and sound are top notch, there’s nothing lacking, it’s superior to Cajons even twice the price, go for it!

  2. Joerg Stadermann

    I am playing my new Pro Elite Torro for 14 days now, played it in rehearsels, on stage and in my flamenco lessons (I could barely drag my teacher away from it). Before I go into the details, I wouldd like to thank Heidi for her great support. Although really busy, she always found the time to keep me updated about the status of my order. Thank you very much, Heidi.
    Now, let’s talk about the cajon.
    The look:
    My first impression after unpacking: Wow! The cajon looks stunning, beautifully crafted and designed. The new round corners give it a high-quality look and add a nice touch to the design. Overall, the look is great.
    The feel:
    I prefer soft tapas and although a bit harder than my old cajon, I really feel comfortable with the Cruz’ tapa. Nice rebound, very responsive, playing feels good and is fun.
    The sound:
    Amazing. There is no other word for it. Deep basses, sharp slaps, light fingertips, finger rolls, all very clear and present. The separation between bass and snare is great and the dynamic ranges from a soft whisper to thundering claps. The tuning system is easy to handle, the strings sound good in every tuning I tried so far. On stage, appart from beeing a real eye-catcher, the sound of the cajon is really great with or without microphone.
    Conclusion:
    Considering that I was prepared to pay high-end prices for the right cajon, I am really lucky. I’ve found the perfect cajon for me, witthout going broke. The Cruz Pro Elite is a great sounding, beautyfully carfted, professional cajon. I’m sure the Cruz will be with me for a long time. BTW, I called it Pablo:-)

  3. Vicki

    My husband gave me this cajon for my Birthday three months ago and I absolutely love it.
    The cajon itself is beautifully made, the workmanship is outstanding and the sound is excellent – incomparable with the cajon I was playing before.
    The personal contact with Heidi during the delivery/after sales process was greatly appreciated. I would thoroughly recommend this product!

  4. Nisha

    Thank you I have now received my cajon and had a few days to play it and I am absolutely thrilled. I had planned to buy a cajon from you for a very long time now and had no doubt I would be super happy with her.
    Over the last few years I went into many shops to try out other cajones and more often than not, I was disappointed by their sound. I had no doubt if I order a cajon from you she would be of top quality. And now FINALLY I ordered mine.
    I can honestly say I’m delighted with the quality of sound and touch of my new cruz pro elite cajon. She simply sounds and plays fantastic.
    I’m super happy, thank you sooooooo much.

  5. Matthias

    My Cruz Elite Toro arrived in April and I had enough time to play and alearn all the sounds, which are inside. It is loud ! Clear fat bass and sensitive snare, which can be sharp and crisp at the corners and gets more mids/tone (like a rock snare), when played more in the middle of the cajon. This offers nice variation of the snare sound (of course the snare tuning system offers even more). Also finger playin’ is cool with the Cruz ! And the seperation of bass/snare is great – just like u can read in the description. If I want to have less bass or play lower volume I put a towel inside (or t-shirt). The surface allows to produce funny dubstep-bass-sounds by rubbing with spread fingers over the front plate (not really important for a cajon, but a nice gimmick).
    Since I got my new Cruz, I rarely play my old Cajon and my band likes the strong new sounds a lot ! Usually you need to test/play a cajon in the shop before buyin’ – that’s why I was a little bit worried ordering online… Now I’m happy I did – the Cruz is worth the waiting time. Great sound, great feel, great look = great fun !

  6. Erik Hulsken

    I received the beautiful cajon must sooner then I expected. The cajon was very good packed and arrived in top condition.
    The sound is very rich, I love it. Especially the warm bass. Great product and a great service. Many thanks Heidi.
