Bent Wood Cajon Traditional Craft Musical Instrument

The first model of oval-shaped craft cajon in the world. Like a wood bending show, specially building it in the shape of a capsule so that the bending technique can fully show itself on the body of the cajon, and the oval shape adds an extra sharp and loud tone compared to the traditional cajon increasing the richness of its performance. The body of the cajon is formed in one piece, the surface of the cajon is cut manually, finely polished, then a natural burning method is used to color the wood; the configuration of the strings is readjusted so the sound from the cajon comes out at its best.

In childhood, Chung Maio liked to quietly watch his grandfather beat drums and listen to him talking about drums and stories. he kept these old memories of the seemingly dull but peaceful life deep inside his heart. When he was in the 9th grade, his grandfather passed away. He was quite used to the original lifestyle and gradually forgot the drumbeat with the passing of his grandfather. More than twenty years later, He met Cajon by chance. When he heard the familiar drumbeat, the loving memories for his grandfather and drumbeats keep coming back. YIKUTSOCHI was founded by the old memories, and he wants to continue the feelings by designing and creating pieces of works. In the past, people lived a life of Taiwan traditional craft. It not only records Taiwanese history but also represents the spirit of traditional culture. With the changing of times, machines have changed the ways of work. Traditional crafts were replaced and disappeared gradually. The crafts that people praised were only remembered in the memory of older generations. In order to regain the oldest memories, they will design technical instruments via the traditional crafts in a new idea, expecting to continue the crafts in different styles.
