Best way to buy a Cajon
30.09.2015
Cajons can be expensive. This DIY Cajon is therefore an extremely cost effective way to buy a cajon, giving you a quality instrument at a good price. The instrument is comparable to cajon models several times more expensive if you put care into the construction process.

The cajon gives a good strong bass sound, as well as a nice sharp snare when you hit the top edge. The snare wires need bending slightly to give the desired snare sound, but that's to be expected based on personal preference.

The kit is easy to construct, and the instructions are quite detailed. However, the bottle of glue doesn't quite have enough in it to attach all the parts as securely as I would have liked. This is fine if you have a bottle of glue lying around at home, but not great for an "all inclusive" kit. The clamp straps don't provide a lot of tension when letting the glue dry, but with a couple of heavy books added on top it's adequate to create a secure joint.

The Bubinga front plate is beautiful, and has a lovely burl grain. The side panels are of a lower quality plywood, and require lots of sanding to finish to a nice smooth surface.

The included screwdriver fits the screws for the front plate and the feet, but is a little big for the screws that attach the snare wires.

Great sounding Cajon
Mark863, 12.02.2017
Easy to assemble. Sounds very good especially the snare wires. I've used it for gigs and busking and it sounds great in both situations.
