I've been making these cajons in my home workshop for many 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 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 all types of cajons. In fact, due to some requests, you can also select a 'no snare' option for a bongo sound only. All these cajons are built from 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 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 (according to previous buyers), but at a significantly lower price!

*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!

In most cases, your item will be shipped with tracking information the next business day after your order. Multiple items will be shipped together, if possible.

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!

My hudband recieved this for fathers day and it is beautifully made! It looks great in our living room and the sound is fantastic! This is truely for everyone. I was worried about the height originally, my husband is 6ft 3inch but it fits him perfectly and my 7 year old son can even sit and play on it! It's a win-win for everyone!
