      I'm a guitar player, but I have more junk to beat on and bang on than most.

      I have a Djembe, made by remo. The only reason I got the Remo one instead of the Meini on with the natural skin is that the Remo one is pretty indestructible and tunable. Lots of fun until my hand go numb.I have a Cajon too. You can do a lot of cool rhythms and beat on those too.

      Do bother getting a foot pedal for your cajon. All the ones I have tried are cheap crap.

      Get a double bass pedal ad mod it.

      Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase.

          For real! And very cool to see a non-drummer fabricating double pedals into cajon kickers! Very well done

            there is no such animal as a non drummer... there may exist arrhythmic drummers but each of us dance to our own heartbeat... drum on brother!
