The drum sounds terrific. Easily as good as competitive Cuban style drums this size - including Schlagwerk's - at almost half the price. The bomba/bass tone is rich and deep (I read a review not too long ago that indicated the bass was lacking, which is absolutely absurd), open tones are quite full, and slaps are sharply defined and project especially well. The craftmanship is excellent, and there's something wonderful about having a drum made to order (in this respect, it's worth the 2-3 week wait). HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

For A Rumbero, The Sound Is Everything. Anything Else Is Secondary.
I took a chance on ordering this Tumba Cajon from Kopf Percussion. Hoping that it will sound as it should. After it Came in, I took it to the Rumba that Sunday for (Thee Test). Well It Passed! There Were Eight Congas and A Set of Timbales In The Group.
All Comments Given Were Positive to say the least. A Few Were Surprised Of The Fact That IT Could Be Heard So Clearly Amongst A The Other Drums. It Has A Deep Yet Smooth Bass Tone. The Mid Tones Are Clean, and the Slaps are Excellent.
Rumberos Have a Saying: If A Drum Does Not Have The Sound, Turn It Over And Make an Expensive Flower Pot Out Of It.
This Tumba Gets A Big Praise! It's A Keeper!

This is my second purchase of a Kopf Percussion instrument. I have the DeUno S-Series cajon and I love it as well. As with the DeUno, the tonal qualities are super. I love how the different tones on the drum are so seperated and distinct. Simply a top-notch instrument.

I used it last weekend. It has really sharp slaps but the low end is just incredible. I used a kick mic under it and shotgun mic on top and BOOOOOOOM!
A nice addition to my set up.
