The Kopf Percussion Cuban Tumba Cajon is the largest drum of the my Cuban line. It offers sharp slap tones, clear open tones, and a deepest pitched bass tone of the three cuban cajons. The wedged shape is easy to hold between your legs while playing. The round corners provide for a comfortable playing surface
I build the Tumba completely from 1/2" Birch and it is finished with a clear satin finish. The finish is thick enough to protect the drum but thin enough to allow the tone of the drum to shine through.

I bought this to replace smaller fat conga I hv played in bands/performances for over 10 years. I LOVE THIS KOPF !!! Larger surface area gives me a deeper bass tone. I use an eye bolt to allow me to wear drum on a saxophone harness. The side is my snare/slap . This is an excellent example of craftsmanship & artistry ❗️❗️❗️❗️
The Tumba from Kopf is an excellent drum, there are so many tones and sounds, delivered with presence Kopf customized ours, added a snare and even our logo! We live aboard a sailboat (SoundWave), there aren’t many spots to sit on a traditional cajon. This Tumba is solidly built, fairly compact and it is sweet to play when seated in the cockpit. Thank you for the craftsmanship. Drums, rums & setting suns!
BOUGHT THIS FOR MY DRUM CIRCLE MEETINGS. I LOVE IT.
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.
This is a perfect Tumba. It has that big ole bass that I was looking for. Massive!
Big round bass.....just like a Tumba is supposed to be. :)
BIG BIG BIG BIG BASS TONES! :)
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.
