Each JJ Boudreau Cajon is one of a kind. The "tapa" or striking surface is made using a baltic birch ply veneered with a bookmatched set of specially selected woods from Windhorse. Behind the "tapa" is an actual snare to give it a crisp sizzle when struck in the top half of the drum. The body is most often made of quartersawn red spruce a wood that is world famous for its tonal qualities.
For the back, unlike many cajons found in stores, solid quartersawn woods like ash, spruce, oak or tamarack are preferred which all produce wonderful, unique tones when struck.
They are highly customizable and can be made from any combination of Windhorse woods with varying results.
