Unique

DP cajons are handcrafted, high-quality instruments that will suit both the professional musician and the novice in equal measure.

DP cajons are instruments that can replace an entire drum kit and are therefore suitable for any occasion, genre and level of expertise. Each instrument is handcrafted, one-of-a-kind and made from different exotic kinds of wood covering the whole range of sounds, from the deep bass to the responsive snare and the precise “click” sound. Each DP handcrafted cajon is made very precisely, which is also reflected in the sound quality as well as design.

After years of testing for various improvements, we realized that wood finish plays an important part of the overall cajon sound. That is why we put a lot of stock in natural wood oils and finishes that do not stifle natural wood resonance but instead refine the sound. Adjustable snare wires enable each individual percussionist to control the responsiveness of the snare effect. When finished, each DP cajon is thoroughly tested by a professional percussionist, Dominik Pavleniฤ.
