PRODUCT NEWS 2015: Solid Oak Cajon



To honour the 140th anniversary of the company, SONOR has announced a very special handcrafted artisan instrument: for the first time, SONOR offers a Cajon with a solid wood body. This exclusive instrument will be limited to 40 pieces worldwide.

The Cajon is carefully handmade by using hand selected wood materials, featuring a smooth body design and shape that optimizes the player comfort and the feel of playing.

Bog Oak veneer, a unique and exotic rarity has been selected to be used on the front and back plates. Bog Oak is a fossilized common or sessile Oak which has been submersed in a bog for hundreds of years. The extraordinary storage adds a dark and warm shade to the wood, similar to our Walnut veneers.


In terms of sound the Cajon is clearly influenced by the high-quality solid oak material, which creates outstanding warm and voluminous bass sounds. A "Made in Germany" snare wire of first class workmanship provides clean and penetrating snare sounds. The intensity of the snare effect can be adjusted through a carefully crafted tuning system which allows the player to control tonal response at three critical spots.

Try and become enchanted!
