Cajons

Handcrafted – each with truly unique features

The Drumkit in a box

The Cajon was the first instrument Stephen made at the age of 16, which sparked the beginning of Ruach Music. He quickly found that musicians were continually requesting custom features for the cajon that no-one on the market offered – 7 years on after thousands of hours of prototyping, testing and manufacturing, these 4 models contain the most popular features developed with musicians across the globe!

Core Cajon

The Core cajon is the perfect introduction to the world of hand percussion. Designed with portability in mind, the Core provides a flexible playing experience for those eager to gain familiarity with the instrument. The fixed 20 strand snare wire allows for a punchy attack with a crisp, detailed high end. On the opposite end of the spectrum, the renowned Ruach sound hole takes care of the lower frequencies, allowing for open yet controlled bass tones. The birch wood construction and rubber feet ensure durability, making the core cajon the ultimate tool for the adventurous musician.

The Street Cajon

Here at Ruach we understand that inspiration can be triggered in the most unexpected surroundings. In order to accommodate this we created the Street model, an idea inspired by the ever growing community of street musicians and buskers. The front facing sound port coupled with our unique internal design enhances the rich bass, allowing it to permeate even in the noisy outdoors. The birch wood composition compliments the tonality of the fixed 20 strand snare wires, evening out the bass tones with precise highs and providing a balance across the audio spectrum. The water resistant body is raised off the ground using rubber feet, ensuring the quality results expected from a Ruach product are now easily attainable outdoors without worry of damaging the cajon.

Ruach Switch Cajon

Switch Cajon

Our entire cajon range has been intently designed with flexibility in mind, giving musicians total freedom when playing. With the Switch, we sought to implement the same high level of adaptive playability while engineering a cajon specifically for jamming and gigging purposes. The internal design has been tailored to make the bass and snare tones highly distinguishable, while the birch wood body helps retain that signature Ruach characteristic. The addition of the innovative instant snare switch gives the player immediate control over the contact between the snare wires and the tapa, providing a secure lock on/lock off mechanism. This feature coupled with the rebated sound hole makes the Switch perfect for sitting in a mix amongst other instruments or simply producing those pronounced Ruach tones during a solo jam.

Ruach Kick Cajon

Kick Cajon

In order to push the boundaries on what is musically possible from a cajon, we did a bit of thinking inside the box. The addition of an internal kick pedal adds an entirely new dynamic to the way the player can interact with the cajon. The inclusion of the pedal introduces a wide new range of tonal possibilities whilst the design allows for ultimate ease of use. The kick pedal allows for more rhythmically detailed playing and the birch wood body provides an ideal surface for the beater, allowing the sound to resonate inside the cajon before leaving the rebated Ruach sound port.
