DeUno Snare Cajons from Kopf Percussion
The DeUno Snare Cajon is a modern version of the traditional Cuban and Peruvian/Spanish Cajon drums. The construction of the Kopf Cajon starts with a solid poplar shell (resonating box). There are two tapas (playing surfaces) that are made from the finest quality baltic birch plywood available. One tapa has 4 non-adjustable snares and the other does not making this drum two cajones in one! Both Playing surfaces are completely glued rather than screwed to the frame. This gives the drum its amazing resonance and rich overtones. If you are looking for a cajon with loads of low end BOOM....then this is one of the best cajon drums for you. The whole cajon is finished with a thin clear satin finish to provide protection while preserving the wonderfull tone of the drum. It is craftsmanship at it's best! Everything is handcrafted, right here in the USA, right down to the custom seat on the top of the drum!.

No other cajon that I have heard resonates like this drum. The snares are definitely there, but you have to work a bit to get them to come across. The lows and mids however are there in spades and the way that both playing sides are glued rather than screwed gives this drum a tone and resonance like no other drum I've heard or played. The "non-snare" side sounds remarkably like bongos/congas or even a bit like tabla depending on where/how you play it. It's made 100% in the USA and is built like a tank. I'm a fan for life and proud owner of 2 Kopf cajons!

It is my opinion that this may very well be the next great percussion company. I had read alot about these cajons and the reviews were spot on. Great drum Kopf! When are you going to start making more than cajons? I can't wait to see more!

I got the DeUno because I wanted something that sounds a little different. It has a very warm tone . The bass is very low and rings out like a djembe would. There are two playing surfaces that have very different sounds. One side has the snares and the other is a more woody sound. This is a great cajon.

I bought this instrument on the recommendation of Steve at Kopf Percussion. I told him that I wanted a very versatile cajon. The DeUno delivers. It has a good bass tone that is really boomy and the snares are good to. What I really like is the other playing surface that doesn't have snares. It really sounds a lot like bongos and congas. I love it.

This DeUno cajon is a real pleasure to own. The craftsmanship is top of the line and it sounds great. I love the seat and the tone is amazing. Lots of boomy resonance. Great for a novice or a pro.

This cajon was purchased after much research and consideration. I was looking for a cajon that would be very versatile and durable. The DeUno fits the bill. This cajon has a great deal of resonance. It really rings out. The bass is a very boomy low end type of bass (which is what i was looking for). I have to say that you do have to work just a little bit harder to get the snares but it is worth it to have that amazing bass tone. Great cajon!

Seasoned player with 22 years of experience. I know quality and this is a high quality as it gets. Rich warm tone with everything where it should be.

My second cajon...should have been my first. Great bass and resonance and a very comfortable top. Very pretty too!

This is my second cajon. When I wanted to upgrade from my Aspire cajon, I started looking around and found that Kopf Percussion was considered to be at the top of the game. Being made in the USA was an added bonus. This cajon has the most amazing bass tone I have ever heard from a cajon. So resonant and warm. I love it. Well constructed and beautiful. AAA+++
