Nice build, Jason! Sounds sweet. Your snare sound is remarkable.... lots of sizzle and crackle. Well done!

thanks alparrott
i was genuinely surpirised at the end product. i have had a chance to play some top cajons in the past few weeks even ones from schlagwerk and meinl (cajons in the £300) category and mine is easily in company with them. and i'm no craftsman - so i challenge all of you to make your own. it is really rewarding.

Incredible! Excellent and beautiful work, and the sound is spot on. You should be very proud of this, and I hope you enjoy the fruits of your labor.

Do any of the videos show how the snare mechanism works? I was a little vague on how it functions and what the snares are actually hitting.

Very nice work, though.
