Item details



Baltic Birch

I've been making these cajons in my home workshop for over three years now. I'm both a long time drummer and a long time furniture maker, so I don't know why it took me so long to put the two together! These cajons measure about 12" x 12" x 19" and have a great bass sound when played at the center of the face (tapa). In addition, there are two options for the distinctive snare sound when the cajon is played near the top of the front face. You can choose a fixed snare option so that the snare effect is always present, or an adjustable snare option so that the snare effect can be turned on or off with a twist of a knob*. The snares that are used are 1/2 of a set of snare drum wires. The fixed snare cajon uses one of the half-sets, while the adjustable snare cajon uses two half-sets. I have included pictures of both types of cajons. All these cajons are built from all hardwood Baltic Birch material with quality furniture joinery, unlike some homemade pieces I've seen. I now have the cajons available in three different colors: cherry, walnut or the new maple finish, which allows them to feel at home in a living room or on stage. They sound as good or better than commercially available pieces, but at a significantly lower price! I can also make a cajon to your specifications. Just contact me for a quote!

*Actually, you loosen a knob on one side of the cajon, then adjust the snare position with a knob on the other side of the cajon, and then tighten the first knob to hold the position – very easy!

    This was beautifully crafted. It was a gift to my father and he loved it. I don’t know much about sounds and tuning so I can’t comment too much on that but my untrained wars thought it sounded great.

    Beautifully made. Carefully packaged and delivered timely. My son didn’t ask for this as a gift, but has really grown to love it. He enjoys the sound quality and being able to sit down and play it at any time. Bonus is that it looks like a piece of nice furniture in our living room alongside our grand piano! Thank you for your craftsmanship!!

    This is a gift, so I can’t review how it sounds - but - I certainly can review this excellent shop! My item arrived quickly and was perfectly packed. It is just as pictured and described and is really good looking in person. Absolutely high marks for this shop!
