I wish to buy a "Roland" electric cajon , but cannot find a supplier in the West Country ( Devon & Cornwall ). Does anyone know who is selling / supplying these things ? I hope to be able to accompany a guitar / lute player and teacher from Totnes whom I have not seen since we were both in Singapore in 1967 / 68 !!

OK, so Google tells me an electric cajon is this (click) but I still don't have any idea what an electric cajon is.

I know what cojones are, but I don't think there's a connection.

So, what's an electric cajon?

more a drum seat than a drum. They are loud and usual players haven't worked out volume. The idea of amplification fills me with dread.

Jose: "So, what's an electric cajon?"

You're spelling Cajón wrong there José.

It's a type of South American "box drum."

Peruvian percussionist, José "Pichio" Ballumbrosio

It was once quite popular in the Caribbean as well but often played a la "hambone" with Djouba (Juba) style thigh and chest slaps mixed in. Any old wood packing crate or box would do in a pinch.

Later, metal "biscuit tin" cajóns were a kind of proto-steel drum (pan.)

The above notwithstanding, searching as "electronic cajon" may even your odds (as opposed to "electric" &.)

Google "amplified cajon". There are UK suppliers of the Roland EC-10. Dawsons in Chester may be the nearest to you.

Ridiculously expensive. I made my cajon entirely out of recycled materials, the expensive bit was the Gorilla Glue.

A quick google shows many places to buy.

Jack, Chester isn't very near Devon...

All the ones I've seen played use a microphone at the rear rather than a pick-up.

The electronic one sounds as bad as eletronic drums usually do, only cheaper sounding. The babe's costume indicates she is a really fierce player! She may play in Xena's band of women...

I am sorry for the snark, but I think you should get a real acoustic one and learn to play it first.

I LOVE micing cajons!

But watch out - playing it sloppily could affect your cojones!

Apologies for my irelverence.

I do hope this isn't a spam thread set up to promote cojons/Roland.
