 Student Series Novato Cajon 

The Novato Student Cajon design is based on the "DeUno" design. It has a very big and resonant bass range as well as crisp snare tones. The shell is built from a lighter 1/2" Baltic Birch and the dual playing surfaces are constructed from 1/8" Baltic Birch. One of the two playing surfaces has 4 non-adjustable snares while the other playing surface has no snares for a natural peruvian sound. The playing surfaces are completely glued to the shell (this is the DeUno design) which is what gives the drum its huge bass tones. The Novato is a very affordable full size beginner cajon that a novice or pro would be proud to own! It is an "Inexpensive cajon" but it is not a "cheap cajon".

    More like a pro cajon

    Its crazy that they call this a beginner cajon. No way! I have played plenty of cajons and this is no beginner cajon. It sound great. The snares are pronounced and the bass is HUGE! Great deal man.

    Excellent Mid range Cajon

    Posted by Alex Pravatt on 15th Apr 2015

    This cajon is more of a Mid Range model than a student. You are getting more than you are paying for with this one. Outstanding cajon!

    Student Cajon?

    Posted by Dora Campos on 14th Apr 2015

    I don't know why this is called a "Student" cajon. This cajon is built and sounds like a pro instrument. Seriously. 1/2" baltic birch tops and sides with 1/8" tapas! There are cajons in Musicians Friend that cost 3 times as much and offer half as much. This Novato has amazingly resonant bass, great slap tone, and a crisp snare to boot. I guess because it doesnt have a seat that makes it a student model :) Love this cajon......AMAZING value!!!!

    Dear Kopf Staff

    Posted by Rick Ricardi on 15th May 2014

    I found your company by doing a web search for 'US-made cajon', and was pleased to find a small GA company doing just that. I recently took delivery of a student Novato cajon, and wanted to say that the build quality is superb: materials, cutting, gluing, sanding, finishing, snare mount/placement, even the feet mounting all first rate! Please let your manufacturing staff know that their high attention to detail and care in making a quality product were duly noted and appreciated. Thank you for making in in America!

    Not your typical student cajon

    Posted by Mark T. on 22nd Aug 2013

    I have been playing cajon for a few years now. My son wanted a cajon so I started looking for a student cajon. I watched a video about this cajon and thought that it sound amazing for a beginner cajon. It is not a beginner sounds amazing and looks to be made better than most other cajons on the market. Great value.

    I am new to the cajon, but from what I've seen in guitar center, this cajon is better than any of the cajons I saw in there. Kopf calls this a beginner cajon, but I think it is more in line with a mid-level cajon....maybe even pro level. Like I said, I am new to the cajon. Great slap and snare sounds and a Big Low Bass, Great looking cajon to boot.

    Great Christmas Present!

    Posted by Chandler on 21st Jan 2012

    My parents bought this drum for me this Christmas. I got my first drumkit last year and this is my first cajon. I am very surprised at how good it sounds for the price they paid. It sounds better than all of the cajones that I played at GuitarCenter. I'm going to save up and buy one of Kopf's S-Series now, if this one is the beginner cajon, then the S-Series must be crazy.
