I got my cajon today! WOW!!! What a wonderful instrument! Everything about it is just great. Thanks for building such a great drum!
S-Series DeUno Snare Cajon Drum
The DeUno Snare Cajon is a modern version of the traditional Cuban and Peruvian/Spanish Cajon drum. 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!.

I love this cajon! I spent about a month researching which cajon I wanted and settled on the Kopf DeUno Cajon. I ordered it on a Friday and it came the next Tuesday. It sounds great. There are alot of different tones that you can get out of it and it has two different playing surfaces that are totally different from each other. It is basically two drums. I love it!
I was looking for a footdrum when I stumbled across Cajons. I began my search for a good fit for what I had in mind, a busking throne/drum. I found a few videos where folks where modifying bass pedals for use with the Cajon. Cool. Next was maximizing the value for the buck and buying a Cajon. I found the major brand names out there & went to the local music store to check them out. What I could try didn’t convince me to put the money down. The build quality and sound just wasn’t there. Then I found Kopf Percussion. The La Peru Snare Cajon looked like a fine piece of handmade custom furniture compared to what I had seen. The padded seat was icing on the cake! I ordered it. Steve called me within a few hrs of placing the order. We cleared up an issue with the order and he had one shipped to me in no time. Sadly the carrier beat the heck out of the Cajon and it arrived damaged. I called Steve and long story short (too late), he replaced it with the new version with rounded corners and a hand rubbed finish. I would swear this Cajon is alive! The sound that resonates from it is unbelievable compared to the similarly priced brands I tried. Steve’s Cajon’s are in another league. His customer service is wonderfully refreshing, like talking to a friend. Good people. I will be a repeat customer. I’ll have to be unless I give my Daughter mine which isn’t going to happen... (-:
