Let's Get Outside and Make Some Sweet, Sweet Music!

Down on the docks? Yeah, why not?

It's only natural. As summer rolls around, musicians and music enthusiasts alike look for ways to take their jams outdoors, and what better little friend to have than the cajon, a versatile and portable percussion instrument that’s perfect for bringing rhythm to any summer gathering. From beach parties to backyard barbecues, jams on Dollymount Strand to busking on Grafton Street, the cajon is an excellent choice for adding a groove to any gathering. Let's have a quick look why the cajon is such an incredible instrument and highlight some top picks from Schlagwerk's impressive lineup.

I realise this is inside but you get me right?

Why the Cajon?

  • Versatility - The cajon is a remarkably versatile instrument that can produce a wide range of sounds. By striking different parts of the cajon’s face and body, you can create bass tones, snare hits, and everything in between. This makes it suitable for various musical genres, from flamenco and Latin rhythms to pop and rock and everything else.
  • Portability - Unlike many other percussion instruments, the cajon is highly portable. Its compact size and lightweight design make it easy to transport to any location, whether you're heading to a beach party, a park, or a friend's backyard.
  • Ease of Use - The cajon is incredibly user-friendly, making it an excellent choice for beginners and seasoned musicians alike. Its straightforward playing technique means you can quickly learn to produce a variety of rhythms, enhancing your music sessions with minimal effort. That's not to say it is easy, but it can be used quickly with a little thought.
  • Acoustic Quality - Cajons produce rich, resonant sounds that carry well without the need for amplification. This makes them ideal for outdoor settings where you want to keep things acoustic and natural.
