Here's my cajon made by a german company in Schlagwerk! I got it two years ago and it has the best bass tone I've ever heard from any cajon. Meinl foot clave on it's right side.

Found this for a buck in the recycle store today. My wife and I dropped some recycling off and we took a quick look around in the store just to pass some time. I saw this cool little kidz drum and thought it would be fun to add it to the kit at Christmas - it lights up! The four little lights blink in a circle sequence pattern via two dbl A batteries. For a BUCK why not.

It's a Sears Castle Toy Kidz Beats Lightup Marching Drum - about $22 new. One man's junk is another man's treasure. Too bad it's not a Round Badge....

Remo Djembe, Gon Bop Cajon with DW Remote Pedal, and Remo Mondo Drum set up at work. I think some people might appreciate it...

My Other Rig

This was from a few years ago. Its got a little more insane since this was shot.

Cajon is at the heart of my other rig. Then I build around it with ankle bells, foot tambourine, all manner of shaker, block, bell, shekere, congas, bongos, cymbals, rain sticks, chimes, and some home made / modified stuff for that extra sum'n sum'n.

My revamped and updated Buffalo Kit - Made entirely from Remo Buffalo Drums!

The tiny shell by the hi-hat is an 8" snare; there are 8", 10" 12" and 14" toms as well. The bass is a 22" Buffalo drum. All the shells are 3.5" deep. All the toms and snare are bolted together using the pre-existing holes in the shells.

Check it out at my blog - Crazy Drum Kits!

wonder1, that setup looks like a ton of fun to play.
That's the first time I've ever seen a cocktail kit configuration where the kick pedal is hitting a batter head rather than a res head. Interesting.

This set here is pretty simple but it's a lot of fun.
