The cajon as an instrument is evolving rapidly as it finds its way into more and more musical genres. People have been modifying them from the original Afro-Peruvian/Afro-Cuban ‘crate’ type of instrument into a more versatile percussion instrument.
Some of the innovations have included the very popular snare cajon, where springs are set behind the top compartment to give a snare drum effect and even a pedal. Some players use a hi-hat cymbal setup or will attach a type of tambourine cymbal to their leg.
