Where does the drawer come from?
The Cajon was invented in Peru and mentioned for the first time in writing in the mid-19th century. However, the origins go back two centuries. When the African slaves were not allowed to play the drums. And they had to find something that replaces yourself the first drawer could have been perfectly a box of fruit.
It was the legendary flamenco guitarist Paco de Lucia who made it popular in the late 70s. From the 90s, and with the wave of “MTV Unplugged” its use extended to pop music. Nowadays the drawers usually have dimensions of 48 x 30 x 30 cm. With the exception of some models with upper-class wood, usually made of birch or beech plywood.
Why are there so many followers?
It is a practical instrument, easy to transport, does not take up space and can be learned easily. Once you have sat on it and learned the basic punches (on the top edge) and the bass (in the middle), you can play your first beat. Obviously, it is much more fun with a group of percussionists.
What are the most common models?
In addition to the usual drawers, it is possible to find other models equipped with strings or with a bell system. The drawer with bass strings usually has two or four guitar strings as an element to scratch the surface when hitting. This concept comes from Spain and is popular for its clear sensitive response and a rather dry sound. With the separation of bass and treble.
The drawers with removable snare drum allow a livelier game and the perfect simulation of drum grooves. Inside the basic versions, the drawers are equipped with a removable snap bar placed against the surface that we hit (inside the drawer).
The company Sela with its detachable have equipped the Casela Pro models, with adjustable and removable snare and in the Schlagwerk Super Agile drawers offer the best possibilities for regulation.
The third variant of less common drawers are the so-called Afro-Peruvian drawers. They do not come equipped with strings, nor border, and are particularly valued among flamenco artists.
