This is the third cajon construction kit I have bought from thomann. This is simply a marvelous buy! At first I was quite sceptical and thought that the sound I would get from it would not be on par with other more expensive cajons. I was very suprised and happy to see (and hear) that I was totally wrong! Paired with a good cajon bass tube, this cajon when completed is simply put a killer! When building it make sure to apply as much glue as possible to fix the tapa (the front side). It happened once that while playing in a concert, the top part of the tapa just opened because I did not fix it well enough when gluing. but after fixing it with what was left of the glue I got in the kit, the problem never happened again!
This is a MUST BUY! Whether you are on a tight budget or if you have a lot of money! It is fun to build and will give you an amazing sound when played
Surpringly high quality kit which wAs easy to build

Bought these for a Cajon drumming course where people learn to build and play a drum in a day at my cafe, Fusion Cafe, Chilwell, NG9 5BB
Impressed with the quality of the components and the inclusion of a decent amount of high quality sandpaper. I ended up using screws instead of nails for the 'sizzle' wires attachment as it was quicker. Add to this the good quality assembly films on the Schlagwerk site and I am impressed by the quality of the finished product. The cajon sounds good, though I did sand down the top left corner front edge of the cajon BEFORE gluing the front on (Don't put glue on this sanded area) in order to create a 'snap' loose corner. this has not affected the integrity of the drum. After decorating (Sharpie markers work great) you can easily seal it with a few light coats of unperfumed hairspray. Because of the different thicknesses of ply on the front and sides, you can get a surprisingly varied range of sounds from it.
