“Handcrafted custom-made cajons”

I love acoustic music. I play many music instruments in my free time and cajon is one of them. As you probably know, it is a rhytmical/ percussion instrument, which is very suitable for acoustic guitar.

In about 12 years of playing this instrument, I have made my own opinion how such a high-quality cajon should sound and on that basis I decided to start making it. Unlike the serial cajons from the shop, I use high-quality materials, precise handmade manufacture and original design with a tuning mechanism of the snare, which allows its full deactivation. The final product I try to fit as much as possible to the particular musician. For example, by choosing the right size of the instrument, the thickness of soundboard, the specific character of the sound, the type and color of the wood, the weight, and simply any parameter the customer wants.

The goal is a tailored cajon that will be an unmistakable unique and will please the user’s ear 🙂

What I offer:

1. Custom made cajon according to viariety of selected parameters.
2. Repair of cajons of any brand – for example, cracked sound board, damaged snare and other damage.
3. Restoration of cajons – new resistant lacquer, sealing deep scratches etc.
4. Rent a cajon from my workshop for a limited time.
