A Cajon is a box-shaped percussion instrument which is believed to originate from Peru. The cajon is typically played with the hands and fingers, but brushes, mallets and sticks can also be used. All faces of the cajon can be played, and like the Compass Cajon, the sides and rear are constructed from a different material to the front, brining different sounds to experiment with. The DG Compass Cajon also features 2 steel strings which can be tuned.
