The Kopf Percussion S-Series 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 4 snares for a crisp snare effect. The other playing surface does not have snares for a natural Peruvian sound.

The playing surface is secured with black oxide coated steel screws. 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 seat on the top of the drum.

    Best cajon made

    Posted by Rick Parrish on 17th Feb 2017

    In my opinion, this is the best standard-sized cajon made, bar none. I am 100% pleased with my purchase!

    Terrific tone and versatility

    Posted by Tom on 23rd Jun 2015

    I have owned a number of Cajon's including a much more expensive one BUT NONE have compared to the tonal quality of this one, by far and away my favorite, we play in a lot of Church settings and I have never even had to mic it as the bass response is incredible, I had debated between this and the double shot but my style and usage the single shot has plenty of snap and when I want to mellow it out I simply turn it 180 degrees and I have a much softer and different sound. Great quality, beautiful to look at, comfortable to sit on. Does't get much better !!!!

    High-End Cajon at a midlevel price

    Posted by Unknown on 9th Feb 2015

    Beautiful sounding Cajon with big full bass tone and nice snare sound. Not only does this instrument sound great but it is beautifully made too. The padded seat cushion is a plus making for a very comfortable playing experience. X8 Percussion also included a very nice and durable case, free with the purchase. Hard to beat deal. Highly recommended!

    Perfect sound!

    I took a bit of a risk buying a cajon I hadn't heard or played in person but I'm so glad I did. You really get what you pay for with kopf. Looks great, sounds great, feels great.

    A Good Deal on a Great Cajon

    Posted by Ron on 28th Jul 2014

    I couldn't be happier with the sound of my Kopf cajon. From my research, I gather the thicker than most poplar shell is responsible for the deep, punchy bass that separates nicely from the crisp snare and the cracking slap shots. The only complaint I have is that the cushion actually seems to make sitting LESS comfortable because I have to sit on the edge of the cushion, so a wider flat surface would be preferable. But playing this instrument is still a joy. The feel and bounce of the Baltic birch tapa makes playing a pleasure. I am thankful for the quick delivery. Although the drum didn't seem to leave X8 for two days, it still arrived the fifth day after my order. Thank you for your service and for an excellent transaction. I'll be coming back to X8 for accessories and to use the points I've earned.

    Versatile Percussion

    Posted by Steve Clark on 14th Jul 2014

    I used the Kopf Snare Cajon for an outdoor stage gig where I needed both the snare and conga sounds. The sound tech set up a boom mic so I could move it to either side and it worked great. Audience members couldn't believe the solid bass, snare and conga sounds I was able to produce.

    Very well crafted cajon ... Good snare sound and well rounded tones on both drum surfaces.

    Couldn't be happier with my new Kopf cajon.

    Posted by Steven Howell on 14th Jul 2014

    Just unbelievable! I'm new to playing the cajon, and percussion in general, and I've only ever tried one cajon at Guitar Center. I purchased the Kopf cajon based on reviews and research that I did online and the comparison in the quality between the two blows me away. The bass is so boomy and the snare so crisp. The seat on top is brilliant. The whole thing feels solid as a rock. I would definitely buy Kopf again and will recommend then to anyone interested in a high quality affordable cajon.
