Introduction: The Hacksaw Blade - Cajon Kick Pedal Adapter

Build your own adapter for a cajon so you can use your existing kick pedal with it when you're looking for a different percussion sound. A 3D printable version of this (I printed using nylon material for greater strength and flexibility) is available at http://gregrank.us/adapter

    Love this. What do you use the round mat for (@17 seconds...)?

    In the attached picture you see the cajon as a seat used to play the drum set. When I use the cajon as a floor tom I place the green round matt on top of the cajon. It acts as a sound dampener and I like the tone it creates with the straw brushes I use, also shown in this picture

    Thanks for the quick response. That's a pretty interesting looking set. Do you have any videos of it being played?!

    It has evolved since I shot this video, but here is a brief clip of an early version:

    Thanks for the compliments!
