Announcement   When most people talk about cajons, they usually refer to the peruvian box-like instruments that have cluttered every part of the internet. Most people don't realize that cajons also come from Cuba and they are different in terms of size, shape, and sound.

This is the unexplored region of cajons, and whether you are a person who frequently deviates from the norm or is content with the status-quo, these are the drums for you!

About

Rumba Cajon: the unexplored regions of "cajonery"

I searched and searched all over for tumba cajons that made sounds like I heard on numerous recordings like "Rumberos De Cuba" and "Clave Y Guaguanco". After becoming very frustrated with the mass produced garbage out there (and spending an undisclosed sum of money in the process), I realized that the only way I could recreate that sound is by making Tumbas myself. After researching the tools needed, I bought a used table saw for $50 and wood clamps. My first attempts were laughable. I kept on and kept on for a whole year until I got it right. I remember when I first made the tumba with the sound I had been dying to recreate; it was a feeling I cannot describe with words, only emotion. Now I bring this authentic sound and craftsmanship to you.

I use only the best quality materials for every drum.

Other woods like oak and maple can be requested, as well as colors for stains.
