Play Sound Clip

The Strung Cajon.



  • The ergonomic design of this cajon makes it very comfortable to play both in the centre and the corners.

  • The scallop in the centre allows the fingers to reach further down the cahon for a bright snare sound.

  • The deep rounded corners fit snugly into the palms while playing more to the top of the cajon.


Full flexibility of sound and easy to adjust.


  • The tension of the traditional wire snares can be easily adjusted by the cross-head adjusters on the base of the cajon,
  • The top corners can also be loosened off to give the distinctive cajon “slap” sound.

  • The bass tone can also be regulated by striking the drum in different places and with differing hand actions providing a fantastic range snare, bongo and bass tones from the one instrument.

Robust Construction:


  • The body of the cajon is constructed from high quality Birch ply to give a good solid feel and deep resonant bass note.
  • The front playing surface is 4mm Birch ply which is very supple, strong and responsive. The front plate has an accrylic coating on the inside to give a livery snare sound.
  • With jointed and bonded top and bottom the drum is robust and built to last.
  • This cajon has 4 coats of fine Danish oil to accentuate the grain of the Birch wood and give a hard durable finish.


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

I have been out busking with it and the volume was perfect even in a busy high street.

I have recorded the drum with a single mic positioned just above the sound hole and I needed very little eq to get the sound just right.

I have also played live with it....it is fantastic for acoustic nights and open mic sessions.



This cajon suites all playing styles and music genres from Rock to Reggie, Blues to Bossa nova, Flamenco to Hip Hop, Country or Folk.



A fantastic, quality built instrument which is versatile and a pleasure to play

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.
