At what age did you think of starting a business? Ruach founder Stephen Henderson had a love for music and woodwork. At the age of 16 Stephen decided to build his very own cajon after playing one for the first time at a jam at his friends’ house. The reason? He couldn’t afford one, but I also wanted to try and make one that sounded even better!
At the early stage of developing my business idea the XPinnovates team gave us invaluable direction and support. Later they worked with us to develop our export sales in Ireland and the USA.
By 2012 curiosity got the better of him and many designs were sketched down and prototyped trying to make the kick work as best possible. Many evenings after school later, the first MK3 was completed with the infamous internal bass pedal featured. The first Ruach MK3 was made for a customer in Scotland and Stephen worked closely with him.
