The Cajon Drum.

A cajon drum is a fantastically versatile instrument. Easy to play, easy to transport and great sound.

Our Cajons Have An Excellent Deep Bass And Crisp Tight Share.

Handbuilt from high quality 9mm Birch wood ply with a super strong and flexible Birch laminate playing surface.

Each cajon is handmade from start to finish. These cajons are very robust and the special thin playing surface makes them very responsive and easy to play.

The low price is possible because we sell directly to you - no retailer or middle men in the chain. From our workshop directly to you.

If we were to sell through retail outlets our basic cajon would cost £120.00 plus. But because you buy directly from the makers you get a top quality instrument for a fraction of the cost.

So whichever cajon you choose from our range you are assured that the sound and build quality will rival and beat cajons costing twice the price.

The Cajon Makers.

My name is Freddy Nelson and me and my mate Chris have built many cajons. We love it. We will make you a quality cajon, sand it, oil it and finish it, test it, pack it up and post it directly to you.

All of our cajons are handmade by us in our workshop to very high standards.

We use only the best hand picked quality laminated wood and we construct cajon drums that are robust and produce a wide range of dynamic sounds.

If you are going to be playing your cajon for extended periods of time you want it to be easy to play. The super thin and flexible Birch wood ply playing surface of our cajons makes them very responsive to the tightest tap and also strong enough to take a good beating (when the moment takes you).

Take a look at the different models we make and take a listen to the sound clips and songs recorded with our cajons.
