Beautifully and painstakingly inlayed, this Peruvian instrument has been designed to reduce the sound of snare wires when playing bass tones. This allows players to get the best sonic characteristics of both a traditional Cajon and a Flamenco Cajon. Includes free bag.

    Gon Bops Acuna Special Ed Cajon

    I shopped around and had trialed a few cajon's before i came across this one. The intricate detail of the finishing was what caught my eye at first, and then after having a jam on it, i had to have it. Some cajon's have a deeper bass note, some have sharper mid-high's but the Gon Bops Acuna special was the first I had found that has a great overall sound straight out of the box. The more you play it and get the feel for it's sweet spots,`it unbelievably just sounds better and better. I doubt anyone would be disappointed with the Gon Bops Alex Acuna Cajon.

    Amazing Cajon for Price

    Great looking cajon, and even better sounding. I had bought a different cajon from a local store, and was not satisfied with its overall sound. Went online, and caught the video for this cajon, and was intrigued. When it got to my house I was blown away. It's a steal...

    Gon Bops Acuna Special Cajon

    Very nice drum. A nice, rich palette of sounds. Looks beautiful, too; we wound up keeping it in our living room as furniture/end table. Hell: if we can sit on it and pound on it, I reckon it can stand to have someone set a book and a cup of coffee on it. The staff at X8 were helpful, and our shipment arrived promptly.

    Gon Bops Alex Acuna Special Edition Cajon w/ Bag

    I've been wanting a cajon to add to my percussion equipment for quite sometime. I was waiting for the right unit to come along...and it did! This cajon has tone like you wouldn't believe! The "bass" is deep and rich and the "slap" is sharp and true. I highly recommend it as an addition to your percussion setup. The finish on the unit is extremely "sharp" and eyecatching and highly polished - a fantastic unit that not only sounds great but has great "stage presence".

    I bought the Cajon to use with a church praise band. Great look. Great sound. Great service.
