S-Series Slaptop Snare Cajon from Kopf Percussion


The Slaptop Snare Cajon from Kopf Percussion is one of the best cajons for sale in the world,  with features dual playing surfaces, one with a snare effect and one with no snare. The front and rear plates are glued on with the tops adjustable with screws. This tapa configuration blends the DeUno's overtones with the Kopf Snare Cajon's crisp slaps. If you want the best of both worlds, this is the best cajon. All Kopf S-Series Cajones have a very fine hand rubbed clear satin finish that allows the wood's natural overtones to come through. All Kopf shells are constructed from solid poplar and the tapas are made of the best baltic birch available. It is a fantastic cajon!

    Fine Instrument

    Posted by Will Shelton on 17th Apr 2015

    The Slaptop cajon is a very high quality instrument that any percussionist would be proud to own. It is beautifully crafted with obvious skill. The sound quality is great with plenty of bass and just the right amount of snares. The soft seat is very thoughtful as well. Very nice

    Super Cajon

    Posted by Mark Lee on 16th Apr 2015

    I chose Kopf because of their great reputation and reviews. I chose this particular model, the Slaptop because of the videos that I watched. I was impressed with the videos but when I had the chance to hear the drum in person.....the videos don't do this cajon justice. It sounds absolutely amazing. The bass is so full and warm and the snares are very responsive. It is very comfortable to play and it looks great too. It is a thumbs up all the way around from me.

    Great right out of the box (Pun intended)

    I love this cajon so much. It has a great snare sound and the bass is really full. The bass is actually the best sounding bass I have ever heard out of a cajon in any price range.

    A+ in my book!

    I couldn't decide between the DeUno and the Snare model. This is the perfect blend of the two. It has great resonance, a big fat bass, and crispy snares. I love it. No regrets...

    Drum kit in a box

    Posted by Bryan on 22nd Jan 2014

    I bought this Cajon after reading as much as I could on Cajons, and almost bought a Schlagwerk until a salesman recommended the Kopf Slaptop. A little further research, and I laid my money down. For a relatively simple instrument, there are many manufacturers with a pretty broad price range, and this Cajon is not one of the cheap ones. But what it is however, is a fine musical instrument, and that's exactly what I wanted. I bought this primarily to use in a 'quiet' 5 pc blues and American band. It performs perfectly in that application, with sharp snare sounds offset by a very rich bass drum sound and various tom tones, depending on where you slap the tapas. It's comfortable, versatile, easy to play, and sounds great--what more do you want? My band mates are very impressed as well, and when I first introduced this Cajon, they were all eager to play it. It got a thumbs-up from everyone. Nice addition!

    Overall great drum

    I couldn't decide between the DeUno's big resonating tone and the Snare's punchy bass and crisp snares. So on the advice of the salesperson, I got the Slaptop. It is a cross of the other two. It has a nice snare and slap tone and a really resonant low end. I use in a folk/rock setting and everyone loves it. I think the quality is probably one of the highest out there as well.

    My Thoughts

    Posted by Jon Miles on 16th Nov 2012

    I knew that I wanted a USA made Kopf Cajon but I couldn't decide between the DeUno and the Snare. After talking with the guy at Kopf (I can't remember his name..sorry) I decided to get the Slaptop. It as a really resonant bass and a very pronounced snare. The seat cushion on the top is a great addition (you know if you have played alot of gigs on cajon) I recommend this cajon to anyone who wants a great professional level cajon at a reasonable price.
