Our story

The begining

Our company representative, Dominik, had his cajon, which was a birthday present from his father, stolen from his car after a concert. Since Dominik was left without his instrument, Dušan decided to build one himself. Using just basic DIY tools that were lying around the house, he built it in their attic. It became immediately apparent that this handcrafted cajon sounded better than the one bought in a store. Because Dušan is a perfectionist, he was sure that he could make it even better.

That’s how our story began…

Development

Each cajon is handmade and unique!

We honed our skills over the years by trying out different types of wood and discovered what gives the DP cajons their distinctive sound. So now we offer cajons with specially selected types of wood, such as palisander, padauk, macassar, cherry, olive…

The most audible feature of DP cajons is the large contrast between the deep, resonating bass and the precise and responsive snare. When hitting the upper corners of the instrument, you get a “click” sound, which contributes to the diversity of the instrument, which can be used to replace an entire drum kit.

A family company

Our efforts have not gone unnoticed and the demand for our cajons is increasing. The whole family has joined forces in this enterprise. Each family member plays a specific role.
