    Default MM's custom Pearl PBC-507 Cajon "bass drum" with internal mic and pedal mount

    Hi,

    One of the custom projects I've been working on over the past few months is a Pearl "cajon" kit.

    Here are some photos of my Pearl PBC-507 box cajon "bass drum" with Shure Beta 91A internal mic (in Kelly Shu mount), Pearl MDT16BDL pedal attachment, and CajonPort.

    The pedal attachment swivels 180 degrees and the CajonPort is customized with a May XLR jack installed inside the tube. Thus, neither interferes with putting the cajon back in its case. The pedal mount can also be adjusted vertically to accommodate different kick drum pedals clamps. The Kelly Shu is installed using the existing holes for the rubber feet and the styrofoam platform (to create tension for the holding rings).

    MORE TO COME ... !!

    P.S. My wife still doesn't know how her styrofoam wedding cake dummy tier went missing ...

    Thanks.

    It sounds as good as a box cajon can be as a little kick drum. The internal mic is really convenient.

    I also use a cajon pedal with a shorter beater (to strike lower on the face) and keep the face plate a little loose (which lowers the pitch).

    Thanks.

    I'll post some more pictures soon with the cajon pedal I'm using and the rest of the set up.
