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.

    Just received my Cruz Cajon. Looks, feels & sounds great. This is my 2nd Cajon, & a vast improvement on my other one. Have been playing for about a year & have been impressed by Heidi’s youtube channel. I’ve followed quite a few of her recommendations & have not been disappointed.
    Her personal involvement in getting these out to her customers is terrific, she tuned & plays each one prior to sending them out. She’s very passionate, very talented & a great inspiration.
    Thanks Heidi Joubert.

    The Cruze Pro Toro Cajon is my First Cajon.
    Yes it looks like you need to be a little more precise on it in order to obtain all the different sound on it but, it’s sooo good sounding!!! The little effort worth it cause you can definitely obtain more modulation than other brand. For the money spend, there is nothing close, the overhaul quality, wood, handcraft, design, is really worth it.
    On top of that, having a delay on my order, Heidi personnally contact me, gave me constant follow up, and a compensation… She really cares for her customers, that’s something we don’t see often nowaday! I strongly recommand Cruze products!!!

    I’ve owned a Pearl PCJ-629 Jingle Cajon for about a year or so. It retails for about £180+ and whilst I had a lot of fun with it for a while, I had to remove the snare due to the annoying vibrations that I couldn’t fix despite many time consuming attempts. I purchased the pro toro model and had high expectations. I was very pleased when Heidi advised me that it is now made entirely from birch but I didn’t know this at the time of purchasing. I was deliberating I’m getting the model up but decided to go with Heidi’s recommendation in the end and glad I did so.
    The design is beautiful and it feels silky smooth. It’s narrower than my pearl Cajon which is ergonomically better in my opinion. I must admit I was a bit underwhelmed when I first started to play it and wasn’t sure if it was money well spent, but it was exciting to have the snare sound back. After a longer session playing it, I realised that it took some adjusting to and is capable of producing a wider range of sounds and somewhat more difficult to play as a result. It’s consequently made me eager to practice more and it’s sounding better as I become more familiar with it. It had really put the fun back into playing again and I play at every given opportunity. When it’s too late in the evening to play it out of consideration for my neighbours, I eagerly wait for the next opportunity and definitely very pleased to have purchased it.
    I stumbled across the Roland EC-10M ELCajon Mic Processor the other day and seriously considering investing in one to add more variety and fun to playing this great Cajon.

    Just to let you know it arrived safe and sound and it is very good….I like it…it has inspired me already!
    thanks a lot. The front playing surface is nice wood and it sounds great. Good warm boom and crisp snare. Nice.

    Just received my new Cajon a few hours ago and must say that it was love at first touch. The sound is incredible and its wonderful to play. I’m really positively surprised about this Cajon.
    Furthermore I want to thank for an extraordinary good service. I can really recommend others to go for Cajon here. 🙂
    Best

    My Cruz Cajon Pro Toro arrived savely wrapped today, and it’s truely beautiful, with a distinct sound, and high quality handcraft work! The bass tone is located as high as possible, like it was promised, and it delivers an warm but still crisp sound, with great dynamic range. I just love it. Heidi tested it herself just before sending it, to make sure everything is alright. Thank you for the excellent service!

    Heidi,
    I love Cruz Cajon.
    It sounds as I expected.
    I could not find anything like this in any music store near by.
    Now I need a carrying case.
    Regards,
    Nahki

    The Cruz Pro Toro is my first Cajon, but I don`t see how it could be any better.
    I can just agree with the other reviews from more experienced people, the sound is great.
    The bass is fat and has quite some power when played hard, but the snare was the bigger surprise to me as it sounds,well, sharp like a snare.
    I don`t find it easy to always get the strokes right for the sound I am aiming for, but my mis-strokes tell me there is a lot of sound variations in this thing waiting to be put to good use.
    As for the design, it looks as good as on the images, just as I hoped.
    To be honest, I`d probably still be happy if it wouldn`t make a single sound, it`s pretty furniture as well. 😉
    Last but not least, I`ve sent a mail to the support address asking a rather silly question about the two snare-knobs at the back.
    The reply Heidi sent back was adorably thorough, explaining everything there is to know in detail.
    Things like that matter to me.
    It`s obvious Heidi is passionate about what she is doing and about the instrument she is selling.
    And she seems to have found the perfect partners crafting such a high quality product for her.

    Having sold my full drum kit a few years ago, I decided to pick up the cajon as a hobby. However, when asked to join a band as their resident cajon-ist, I decided to upgrade.
    I found Heidi’s videos late in 2013, and found them immensely helpful and inspiring – I knew I wanted the cajon she was using! So I took the plunge for this model and have been blown away.
    It looks sexy, sounds superb and I can honestly say has added a new dynamic to our band of three. My bandmates and friends in the audience at gigs have all commented on how good it sounds.
    So, if you’re worried about taking a punt on any Cruz Cajon… don’t! You won’t be disappointed!
