Description

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 ($110), or an adjustable snare option so that the snare effect can be turned on or off with a twist of a knob* ($129). 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!

*** Note: This item uses Etsy’s ‘Calculated Shipping’ which uses Priority Mail and bases shipping cost on your zip code. There may be alternative shipping methods which would be less expensive, particularly for states more than 400 miles from Ohio. Contact me with your zip code to see if another shipping method might work better for you. Thanks. ***

I bought this as a gift for my drummer husband. He loves it and immediately started to play it as soon as the package was opened.
Shipping was quick, and the drum seems to be nicely made. We are both very pleased with this purchase!

Beautifully crafted Cajon, sounds just as good as it looks. Nice bass tones and snare snap. Highly recommended if you're on the market for a Cajon. You can't beat the price for this finely crafted instrument, it is solid and well built. Shipping was secure and fast. I love mine and I'm sure you would love yours too!

Shipping policies

EverLasting Furniture will generally ship the next business day after payment clears. Many of my items have a fixed shipping cost, but some of the larger, heavier items like the Cajon (drum box) and Arts & Crafts clocks are expensive to ship to areas outside the regional area centered on Ohio. For those heavier items, calculated shipping will be used and charges will then be based on your zip code. For these few items, buyers out West, in the deep South, in the far North East should contact me to see if a less expensive shipping method than USPS can be used. Any questions, please contact me.

If multiple items are ordered at the same time and can be shipped in the same container, a reduction in the shipping charge will be made. Some of the more expensive items will carry extra insurance.

Additional policies

EverLasting Furniture loves a challenge! If you have a unique piece of furniture that you have not been able to find anywhere else, why not contact us about making that custom piece? You can contact us through Etsy, or from our website EverLastingFurniture.com.
