Couldn't be happier. I love my cajon! Thanks Kopf!
Drum kit in a box
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.
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.
My first Cajone, but I am thrilled with it-
I did some research- gave this one 5 stars, but keep in mind I'm a newb to the cajone- but NOT to percussion. This drum is responsive and rich. I just played a gig with it- put an SM57 near the port and fed it to a looper- then created some great sounding backup rhythms to accompany my songs (acoustic guitar and vocal). Got a great audience response. Very fun instrument. Nice job KOPF!
Truly a professional cajon!
I have been playing cajon for 2 years now. I started with a Meinl cajon. When I decided to step up, I looked at many different drums. This drum stood out to me. The build is just superior to most cajones out there. I love the padded seat and the dual playing surfaces. It sounds awesome!
I love my cajon!
I just came home from work and opened my Kopf cajon that was delivered today. WOW!!! This is the second cajon that I have owned and man this one is awesome! I love the resonance of this cajon as well as the responsiveness of the snares. It is definitely a winner!
