Vic Firth Enters the Cajon Market with Two New Products

Vic Firth Co., the world''s largest and leading manufacturer of drumsticks and mallets, is excited to announce two new products for the cajon. 

With its roots in Afro-Peruvian tradition, the centuries-old cajon has seen a major resurgence, becoming the darling of the contemporary music scene. Portable and versatile, it is one of the most exciting percussion instruments of our time! 

“Although the cajon is traditionally played with the hands, today’s percussionists are experimenting with a variety of implements in pursuit of new and exciting sounds,” states Neil Larrivee, Vice President of Education and Drumstick Product Development for Vic Firth Co. “For all the cajon brushes out there, we were surprised to learn that very few of them actually address the unique needs of this emerging instrument!” 

Vic Firth’s new cajon products are designed with functionality and musicality as the top priorities. 

Cajon Bru-llet 

The Cajon Bru-llet marries elements of a brush and a mallet to brilliantly translate both slap and bass tones to the cajon! Hickory shaft with medium-stiff plastic bristles and a 1 1⁄2” mallet head made from XLPE foam. 

VKB4 (Cajon) 

A spherical foam rubber head produces a warm, full bass tone on Cajon with just the right amount of attack. Think outside the "box" and try it out on your bass drum, too! 

#CB1; L= 13 1⁄2”, Dia. = .650”, Spread = 3 1⁄4”; MSRP = $54.95 #VKB4; L= 7 7⁄8”, Head size = 1 1⁄2”; MSRP = $28.25
