This is a Drum Kit in a Box
They were traditionally made from plywood.
Cajon has become extremely popular and for good reason. The square-ish box offers delightful tones, sometimes muted and some times open, which simulate everything from bongos to tumbas to snare drums, when played with hand slaps, deep palm "dooms" and sizzling finger staccato patterns. The Cajon looks for the all the world like a humble box but it has become so much more.
They are a great addition to acoustic sets and a whole lot of fun.
They are very loud!!
This is Craig Bevan playing all instruments on this fantastic video.

We also have many Pro Drummers who use our drums.
The Cajon is believed to have originated in Peru when the African slaves, brought to Peru from Angola, began using fruit crates as percussion instruments. Displaced from their homeland, the African slaves substituted cod shipping crates for their native drums. In Cuba, small dresser drawers were used for the same purpose. The instrument was refined and became an important part of Cuban and Peruvian music. Early usage of the Peruvian Cajon was to accompany Tondero and Zamacueca (old version of Marinera) dances.
Today, the Cajon is heard extensively in Andean, Cuban, and Flamenco music. It's steadily gaining popularity in all types of contemporary music and has become a favorite for "unplugged" sessions and is often used to accompany the acoustic guitar.
