I heart Schlagwerk.

I love their instruments.

They are beautifully crafted and have superb tone quality.

Here’s my collection (and yes they all have names):


This is Kartha.  He’s a CP404 with a dark wood front.  He’s the cajon I use the most as his tone suits so many different situations.  Kartha’s snare tones are lovely and snappy and the bass tones have a wonderful bass sound with plenty of definition.

Next up is Karan.  She’s the first ever Schlagwerk cajon I owned.  Karan is a CP404 with a beechwood front.  She has a very similar tone to Kartha except she’s a little softer and warmer and her bass notes aren’t quite so bassy.  Karan is a bit of a rebel and I had to give her a break from touring as this is what happened last time….

Thankfully she’s calmed down a bit since then 😉

This rather sexy looking beast is Martha.  Martha is a CP432 deluxe Makassar.

Her bass tones are ferocious!! 🙂 She’s so much fun to play and looks awesome…..

…and this is Simon.  He is a dark oak CP408.

His overall tone is warm and soft and he’s a real Mr.Smooth.

 I used Simon for the Disappear Fear USA tour and he sounded awesome and is so wonderful to play.

And here’s my latest addition:

Samara the Yambu YD444

Samara is a cross between a cajon and a conga and she sounds *amazing*.  She’s also super easy to play and has gorgeous tones.

Here’s a couple of videos of me messing around with Samara:
