Kopf S-Series Double Shot Snare Cajon
The Kopf Percussion S-Series Double Shot Snare cajon features a solid poplar shell and dual playing surfaces made of baltic birch. The wood is carved thicker than any other cajon brand delivering a beautiful rich sound. One playing surface has 8 snares making it super saturated with snare tone setting it apart from the standard S-Series Snare Cajon. The other playing surface does not have snares for a natural Peruvian sound.
This drum has a 1" solid Poplar shell with dual 1/8" thick Baltic Birch playing surfaces. The playing surfaces are attached with screws, giving it very pronounced slap tones and a very deep and punchy bass tone.
All Kopf S- Series Cajones have a hand rubbed clear satin finish to allow the natural overtones of the wood to come through.
Everything is handcrafted in the USA, right down to the custom 1" thick upholstered seat on the top of the drum.

- Solid Poplar Shell (resonant box)

This is my first cajon, and I'd like to thank Art for helping me choose this product because I have no regrets and believe that there is no better way I could have spent my money. This is much better than the LP cajon used in my church and definitely much more comfy. The only issue I have with it is its ringing, which could probably be fixed by tinkering around a bit and adjusting the snares, but haven't found anything on the internet to help me out at all. Help would be appreciated from anyone who knows how to fix this issue. All around great cajon with a great amount of bass but not what I expected from the high slaps on the sides.

Very well built, with awesome sound. It takes a little more slap than I expected to get a solid snare sound (seems the snares are a little tight and they are not adjustable)...but, on the other hand, this makes the bass tone very clean with almost no snare rattle bleeding through. I like it!

Been searching for the right cajon for a while now. Tried several, but this Kopf Double Shot Snare Cajon is the best I've played. It has that snare tone that I've been missing in other cajons I've tried. But even with so much snare tone you still have a really fat bass tone with great separation. I can get a wider variation of tone out of this cajon than any others I've played. If you want a killer "drum set-like" snare tone this is the cajon for you!!
