Ebony Burst & Baltic Birch Made in spain

Playing surface

The beautiful canyon burl frontplate features a textured surface for enhanced feel along with an outstanding response, from finger rolls and ghost notes to heavy back beats.

Resonating body

We used 9-ply (12mm) Baltic Birch highlighted with inlays to construct the body of the cajon. Baltic Birch is commonly found in high end drum sets for its focused sound with wide tonal range.

Contoured playing surface

The exquisite Baltic birch playing surface is rounded at the corners and sanded down to form thumb notches where your hands lay in their natural position. This gives you exceptional contact with the cajon along with more comfort.

Taking the touch of this cajon a step further, the playing surface is sanded and shaped together with the resonating body to form a perfectly flush, 1-to-1 match. Each resonating body has a playing surface made just for it.

Pre-tuned custom micro-coiled steel cajon strings

Hand-wound steel strings span against the length of the playing surface inside the cajon to give you a snare response with clarity, precision and sensitivity.

Each side of the playing surface has four pre-tuned strings that give every area of the cajon a crisp, dialed-in snare effect.

Internal bass reflex system

The bass on this cajon feels more like a well-tuned kick drum.

An internal bass reflex system re-directs sound waves inside the cajon to elongate low end frequency. This gives the frequencies more time to develop inside the body of the cajon, resulting in an enhanced bass tone with plenty of thud.

the feel It's all about

When there is no question about how it plays and you get MORE back in response than you put in, you have found a prized percussion masterpiece. It's a great feeling when you can sit down with this cajon and get a sense of its depth of sound and incredibly detailed craftsmanship with only a simple tap of your fingers on the playing surface.
