Rumba Box.

Authentic Mento Sound

  • This is a traditional mento (early Jamaican/Caribbean) instrument which substituted for the double bass.

  • It has 6 keys which can be independently tuned. (We have it tuned to the key of G but you can tune it however you like with a pair of pliers.

  • It sound fantastic.

Deep Resonant Bass:

  • The Rumba Box has a beautiful round and deep bass tone with a slight chime from the keys themselves.

  • Great for Reggae, Ska, Rock Steady, Mento and many other styles of music.

  • Like a cajon you sit on the Rumba Box and play the keys with your fingers.

Robust Construction:

  • The Rumba Box is constructed from 9mm Birch ply.

  • Glued and jointed for strength.

This instrument is perfect for Busking, Recording or Playing Live.

We make these Rumba Boxes to order and each instrument will take about 7 days to make

We do a number of handpainted motifs and we are open to suggestions for a customised finish.


I've also played live with's fantastic for acoustic nights and open mic sessions.

(The sound clip for this model is recorded using a bass drum mic positioned near the sound-hole and a condenser mic at the front.)
