Basic Cajón

Basic Cajón

All the features, at an entry-level price!  Featuring two playable sides. The front Tapa (playing surface) has a high quality, adjustable guitar string snare on the inside. Turn the Cajón around to access the Tri-tone Tapa, three crisp tones set to different pitches using internal partitions. There is so much you can do with this Cajón!


The front Tapa (playing surface) is made with thin, strong Birch plywood which is finished with a veneer of a hardwearing decorative timber.  The snare tension is adjustable using an allen key (supplied) to turn two bolts on the base of the Cajón.  This means you can get a short snappy snare sound, or a fizzy one.


The rear Tapa, glued tightly to an internal partitioned frame, is made of strong Birch plywood. This surface is divided into three parts producing three different bongo-like tones, high, medium and low.  The sections are clearly marked by inlays of beautiful timbers.


The body and main structure is made from Birch, a solid and great sounding timber known for it’s tone and used widely in the building of percussion instruments.  A Tukituki Instruments logo is branded on the drum, felt floor protection pads are fixed to the base, and it has a high quality durable hard-wax oil finish.

  • This is my most popular model, it has all the sounds of the more expensive models but with a simple visual aesthetic.  This drum suits all players from about 8 years and older.  However, even the young ones can play this drum by tipping it over on it's side.
