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.

Very good cajon
I recommend the Doubleshot cajon to anyone looking for a really high quality american made cajon. It has very very responsive snares and a nice low bass tone. I am very pleased with this instrument.
SWEET CAJON GOODNESS
MY FIRST KOPF CAJON WAS THE CUBAN SEGUNDO CAJON THAT I GOT TO PLAY AT DRUM CIRCLES. WHEN I WAS LOOKING FOR A REGULAR CAJON, KOPF WAS MY FIRST CHOICE BECAUSE I ALREADY KNEW WHAT SORT OF QUALITY THEIR INSTRUMENTS WERE. THE DOUBLESHOT IS, IN MY OPINION, THE PERFECT BLEND OF SNARE AND BASS. THERE IS PLENTY OF SNARE SOUNDS WHEN YOU WANT IT AND THE BASS HAS JUST A HINT OF SNARE IN IT. THE WOOD IS STUNNING TO LOOK AT AND THE LITTLE EXTRA THINGS LIKE THE ROUND CORNERS AND THE SEAT ARE GREAT FINISHING TOUCHES. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS CAJON TO ANYONE THAT WANTS A GREAT CAJON.
Just what I wanted!
I purchased this cajon after reading an article about it in DRUM! Magazine. This cajon has the best bottom end of any cajon I have found. It also has a nice crisp snare sound. I recommend this drum to anyone.
Very Satisfied Customer!
I purchased this cajon direct from Kopf Percussion after reading an article in an old issue of DRUM! magazine. This cajon produces very crisp snare sounds and has a fantastic bass tone. Just like the article said, this drum is worth much more than #300
A great experience
The cajon is absolutely amazing! Thanks so much for taking the time to talk to me on the phone and answer my questions. Top notch customer service. Great American company!
Kopf Double Shot Snare Cajon
After playing several of the other big name cajons and not being happy with the tone, I ordered the Kopf Double Shot Snare Cajon based on a demo I heard. Once it arrived I was very pleased to find that it did indeed live up to the demo I heard. As others have said, the snare sound is just the best and the bass is nice and punchy as well. To me the separation between snare and bass is perfect. The seat is very comfy and overall build quality is top notch. I called Kopf just to ask a question and actually got to talk to the owner himself, Steve Head, try getting that kind of customer service from the big companies. This is just an amazing cajon all around. Kudos Steve!!
Great snare sound!
I wanted a cajon that had lots of snare and I didn't really care if there was a separation between the bass and the snare. The snares on this cajon are amazingly responsive. The bass is really deep and punchy. I love the seat and the craftsmanship is awesome. I can't find any faults really. It is a really great professional drum.
GREAT SOUNDING CAJON
I FOUND THIS CAJON AT MY LOCAL MUSIC SHOP. I DON'T THINK I HAVE SEEN ANOTHER CAJON DRUM THAT EVEN COMES CLOSE TO MY KOPF CAJON. THE BASS ON THIS DRUM IS REALLY FAT, THE SNARES ARE SNAPPY, AND I APPRECIATE THE PADDED SEAT. A+
