Deluxe Cajón

Deluxe Cajón

For the discerning Cajón owner! The Deluxe Double-Sided Cajón has the same sounds as the Basic Cajón.  However, the quality of the materials in the Deluxe version is higher and each drum is uniquely made with one-off pieces of Exotic or New Zealand native wood veneers and inlays.  You may see some of my latest drums by checking out my Instagram, or by contacting me so I can send you photos of drums you could choose from.


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 stunning decorative timber from my special stash.  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.


The best way is to get in touch and ask about any Deluxe Cajons i’ve created lately, and I can send you some pictures.  I’m always creating new drums and collecting special stash of beautiful timbers for this purpose.

  • I designed this model for those who want something a little more special than what you can normally find in music stores.  This model is also good for touring musicians as it is built strong and lightweight, yet is visually appealing with top quality materials.
