I bought this to use in home recordings instead of a full drum kit. The quality of materials is good and it is very easy to assemble. I don't have a lot of experience with Cajons but the sound quality seems great. I immediately was able to play it. It's very easy and sounds great.
Unfortunately there was an error. Please try again later.

Sela SE 001 Snare Cajon Kit
Consistently a positive experience. I had already played a few Cajons and have lessons on a Millenium Cajon-Box1 (45¤), a PUR Cajon PC4299 Cajon Stained (299¤) I had already ordered from Thomann and returned. Delivery as always fast and faultless. Now to the kit, I am an independent master craftsman, it contains everything you need, but I decided to upgrade the delivered kit.
The gluing of the box is done as described, a clamping with screw clamps is not recommended, the enclosed tensioning straps are easier to handle. The adjacent wooden surfaces can and should be protected with an adhesive tape strip, otherwise stains which remain visible with a transparent seal. An angle to control is advisable Also I have waited one night until the glue has set. The screws I have replaced by 3mm * 25mm stainless steel screws. The back plate I glued and screwed directly, thinks again to the adhesive tape. The inner corners in the Cajon I have reinforced with bars 2cm * 3cm * 20cm and two screws plus glue. Please note that there is a gap of approx. 5mm to the back wall, so that this is not dampened, there is enough room to mount the snare mount.
After drying overnight I have at the longitudinal sides of the upper / seat surface two lines about 5mm Recorded from front to back. So you have an edge where a rounding can be applied, the structure of the multiplex panels is visible and the seat comfort is significantly increased. The other edges I have just broken well broken. This is all done by hand, one has to take care of the grinders to the hand that the birch decor layer does not tear. In this case, the abrasive supplied is no longer sufficient.
Now I have the front plate prepared as described and first fixed with the supplied screws, the edges rounded and adapted. Then I removed the plate again and the edition on the box again carefully worked.
The box I have coated with a clear lacquer inside as outside, the front plate oiled. For this purpose, a finer abrasive 280-320er should be used.
After drying, I installed the front plate, with new stainless steel screws 3 * 25mm. In order to bring the Klappcorners to advantage, I did not like in the online video of Sela paper strips or other interposed, but in each case at the Letzenschraube, a stainless steel backing disc 3,5mm between the edge body and the face with the screw fixed. This results in a nice, even spacing, That the impactor does not travel downwards, so do not use an Akuschrauber.
Afterwards use the snare carpet, with me was the game in the guide too large. So I put a little felt on the snare insert and finished.
Conclusion: processing for a base Cajon very good. Pass accuracy really good. The kit is still worth 15-25¤uros. The most important thing is the sound and the right one, clear sounds on the flipcorner, clean snaresound and a fairly powerful bass, the snare can be adjusted very well with the foam and the great one can simply take out the snare insert or extend another insert 19.90 . For the comparison again in the store the one or other Cajon played and now I know that I have an individual good sounding Cajon. My wife is already waiting for the next delivery of Thomann, which will be yours, as long as I will probably have to do without mine.
