This cajon is the cousin to the S-Series Snare Cajon. It has a 1" solid Poplar shell with dual 1/8" thick Baltic Birch playing surfaces. The playing surfaces are attached with screws, giving it very pronounced slap tones and a very deep and punchy bass tone.
What sets this cajon apart from the other S-Series Cajons is that it has twice as many snare. It actually has 8 nonadjustable snares. This cajon is super saturated with snare. The snares are very responsive in both the slap and bass tones.
The DoubleShot also has a 1" thick upholstered seat and steel reinforced rubber feet. Finally, the drum has a clear satin finish.

This is actually my 3rd cajon drum. I play alot of jazz gigs and I wanted a cajon with very responsive snares so I could emulate brushes on a snare drum. I wasn't sure about it so I chatted with Steve (the owner) on facebook i think it was. Anyway, he recommended this cajon. I ordered, and it arrived in 2 days! Sounds awesome. I can play very light ghost notes with my fingers and it gives me that brush stroke sound I was looking for. Great addittion to my collection.
Plenty of snares
This is the second call home I have owned. My other one is a Schlagwerk. The Schlagwerk is a good Cajon but the snares are not very loud. I bought the double shot because it has so many snare wires in it. It sounds great. Just what I was looking for. The wood is also stunning to look at. The Kopf Percussion line seems to be one of the highest quality.
His drum as everything I was looking for. It has a great bass tone has little as tremendous snare effect. The construction seems to be very well built. I have no regrets with black purchase of this the cajon.
Got for my Flamenco group. Great cajon.
AWESOME CAJON AND CUSTOMER SERVICE!!
This is my second Kopf- I also have the Deuno which I will review separately. If you want big snare, and fat, solid (but not overly resonant) lows- this is the drum for you. I actually had the pleasure of talking and emailing with Steve several times now and I have nothing but respect for the both the quality of their instruments and their commitment to customer service. I have several high end cajons from other very reputable companies (a few costing hundreds more than the Kopf and none of them made of solid wood), I would put this up against any of them in both quality and tone (and it's made in the USA). This can easily adapt to ANY kind of music that a player would be providing accompaniment to. I look forward to many years of enjoyment from this awesome instrument- well done!!
Great customer service!
I sent an email to the customer support desk and they answered my questions promptly. I placed my order based on the recommendation from their help desk and I absolutely love this cajon. Great bass and warm tone. Thanks guys!
No. 1 Cajon of the world
I just received the double shot cajon today. And I am very very delighted to play this cajon. I inspired by the craftmanship and the tone color for all positions. And Steve has a good follw up of my delivery. I highly recommend people to buy cajon through Kopf. It's a wonderful brand. Professional!
Very good responsive snare and bass. Top quality!
