We had a summer ministry team with us from Appleton Community EFC a few weeks ago. Their Associate Pastor/youth guy, Mike Collison has been building his own cajons and did a special craft project with out tutoring kids in which they were able to build their own and then they had a big drum circle at the end of the week. Cool!
So, after returning from my vacation in sunny Pensacola Beach, FL I found a handmade, Mike Collison cajon sitting in my office. You can see where the whole youth group signed it on the bottom. The cajon has snares on the inside to better simulate a drum kit sound. I’m looking forward to next week’s staff prayer when we’ll be able to add some beats to our worship. The instrument is very well crafted; and I would recommend it to any serious player.
