Hi, my name’s Tim and Urchin Percussion is my thing. As well as designing and building cajons, I also play one with Wakefield band The Now Nows and I’ll be posting gig dates here as they come.
Next chance to see an Urchin cajon or two, have a chat and maybe try one out will be on Thursday 12th February at The Hop, 19 Bank Street, Wakefield WF1 1EH. We’ll be playing downstairs from around 9 pm.
I’ll be the one playing the box 🙂
Urchin Cajon set up ready to record forthcoming tracks with The Now Nows at a session at The Sound Surgeon studios in Lincolnshire.
This cajon has Urchin’s unique snare adjuster (out of sight, at the rear of the cajon) and a prototype front head tension system. 48 cm tall with a 29.5 x 30 cm top; all high-grade birch ply body, back and tapa with a satin oiled finish.
Mic setup is a pair of MXL condensers (one at the front as seen in the photo, one a few feet in front for the room sound) and an AKG D112 behind the cajon.
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.
