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.

Customer Reviews:

  1. 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!

  2. Perfect sound! 

    Posted by Unknown on 28th Jul 2014

    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.

  3. 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.

  4. Kopf S-Series cajon drum 

    Posted by Arthur Sands on 16th Jul 2014

    Excellent drum. Sturdy, pretty and a great bass tone.

  5. 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.

  6. Very Nice Cajon 

    Posted by Charles (FL, USA) on 14th Jul 2014

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

  7. 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.

  8. Newbie loves this! 

    Posted by Robert Ketterlinus on 11th Jul 2014

    I play fretted instruments (guitar, mandolin, dobro, lap steel, UKE and some bass) in my acoustic group and was looking for a way to add some percussion to the mix. I never tried cajon (or drums for that sake) and decided to try this one on recommendation of rep. at X8 Drums as being most flexible. Also like idea of the padded seat and had good reviews. I love it so much I find myself spending more time on it than my regular instruments! Found a good way to mic it and adding Kickport and other accessories. Support from Steve at Kofp is also excellent!

  9. Loving it! 

    Posted by J Neill on 11th Jul 2014

    I gave myself the Kopf as an early Christmas gift and am crazy about the snare, the tones and the versatility. Awesome drum.
