High-quality hand-made Cajón. It’s a box-shaped percussion instrument.
Cajón is a box-shaped percussion instrument originally from Peru, played by slapping the front or rear faces (thin plywood) with the hands, fingers, or sometimes implements such as brushes, mallets, or sticks.
The box is made of high-quality oak wood. A thinner sheet of plywood, with a thin Formica lamination, is nailed on as the sixth side and acts as the striking surface. The striking surface of the cajón drum is commonly referred to as the tapa. On the backside of the Cajón, you can find a 5″ diameter soundhole cut in the wood.
We also place a double snare inside to give the sound buzz-like effect.
Each piece is unique and hand-made. This means the sound of each instrument has slight differences from one to the other. But nevertheless, all of them look and sound beautiful!

Cajóns painted & clear colors
The standard Cajón we offer is painted in a colorful manner (see picture). After the painting, we cover the Cajón with clear lacquer. So it will protect the painted colors for a longer time. We apply it on all 6 sides of the Cajón.
We can also provide you with clear Cajón. But covered in clear lacquer for protection. This ensures it will have a natural look to it, and the natural wood shapes and colors will be visible.
We can also provide you with clear and unpainted Cajón. This works best for those who feel creative and want to paint it themselves or have an artist friend who can decorate it for them.
