    Very pleased by the sound and quality

    I bought this as a gift for my 12 yr old son. Great success and a fun project to build. The cajon sounds exactly the same as in the demo. Perfect! Thx for fast delivery.

    terrific kit, sounds great

    The kit was relatively easy to put together. After a couple coats of polyurethane it was ready to go. It is not the prettiest cajon (a simple box) but it sounds terrific and has a great bass.

    Sela cajon drum kit

    Best cajon I have ever heard. Did extensive research before purchasing this kit. Has a wonderful rock sound with very deep bass and adjustable snare. I used hard wax oil to condition the wood once assembled. Beautiful! Just be careful how many coats you put on the drum head. I would suggest only one coat on the head but as many as you'd like on the top and sides. Too much on the head muffles the sound.
