    Im not following you. I will say that I love cajon but cannot play it for an extended period of time due to the stooped position of reaching for the middle slap.

      That's exactly it. No double talk. Friend of mine tends bar but has a pretty good thing going playing music. His latest outing is with the cajon, a bassist and the singer guitarist of the week. Complains that it's starting to get to his back. Naturally I asked why not a stand then and he says it doesn't sound right if you don't sit on it. Anyway, the Taylor and Martin can be drummed on your lap or even standing up. Better tone too lol.

        i will choose a good djembe over a cajon every time when given the option... i like standing up, moving, adjusting position... and its tough to sing bent down like that... breathing, and comfort plus a more versatile instrument... ( in my limited skill set ) makes it difficult for me to even consider sitting hunched up on a small square flat chunk of hardwood...

            I got a Yamaha piano bench for 20 bucks from Amazon which I use as a drum throne. Very cushy but solid. Beats that beat up circular thing I had been using. No heavy tripod either. Happens to work just right on keys too. What are the odds? I like djem (bae?) but my hands will start to hurt after a couple tunes. They are easy to lug around though. I'm thinking my way through {hay, wut r branes 4?) a planar plywood percussion setup that would play a lot easier than slappin a box and for sure have more tonal variety.

                On reality? To skeree.

                On djembae (plural) it's the rimshots that start to wear away. Same thing with conga and bongo. On drumsticks I do a deliberate death grip. It works like an embouchure - maybe for like sousaphone but like LFOs instead of bouncy boingy King's English stick control. Playing has to be more deliberate and that's a steep learning curve but the beauty is it's way more articulate that traditional methods.

                  on the slaps and rim shots, relax your fingers, relax your hands... technique, not brute force will bring the snap! oh, and a couple good mics...

                    Hands are pretty loose though. Mics would help no doubt.
