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".

    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

    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.
