These cajóns are finished in transparent coloured wax, which shows the grain of the birch beautifully. Black and blue as shown here are available now in the shop section. More colours soon!
As lovely as the traditional wood-finished cajón will always be, sometimes it’s good to mix things up a little. Here at Urchin we love doing just that. Here are a few examples of non-standard finishes on Urchin Cajons. If you’d like an instrument with your own choice of finish, get in touch and we’ll see what we can do 🙂
Urchin snare Hexajóns… This pair in Red Meranti and Birch. Table or laptop rhythms, also available in other wood combinations – see the shop for stock details!
Add some drive to your rhythm! Whether you’re a percussionist or guitar player, banjo, fiddle or bagpiper, the Urchin range of stompers will give you a low-end thump to push your music forward.
Pictured here in bubinga and birch, other material combinations are also available – check our store page for what’s in stock!
Working hard on the new line of Urchin stompers – in selected hardwoods for a “traditional” look and feel, or spangly transparent cast polymer for a modern take – these look great under (or over!) the lights and feature an XLR output to go straight into a microphone channel. Pictures soon, or come and see them at Grantham Christmas Market on 27th November!
Urchin will be taking a stall on Grantham Christmas Market on 27th November. We’ll be selling cajóns, stomp boxes, tongue drums and much more, as well as demonstrating all the instruments and giving advice on things like technique and amplification.
More details closer to the date; looking forward to seeing you there!

Even oranger(?) than before – Urchin cajons now available in hand-painted gloss colours. Summer orange now, with more to come. Plus a new product prototype for players who want to keep their own beat: ideal for solo artists, a mini stomper from Urchin. Watch this space for product development news 🙂
Standing 37.5 cm tall, with a 25 x 26 cm top, the Rascal has fixed snares and an adjustable front head (tapa) for a versatile, snappy and surprisingly big sound.
9 mm birch ply construction with a 4 mm back and 3 mm tapa, the junior cajon stands on sturdy rubber feet to prevent stage creep.
