The Lindo Cajon Drum – Made in Spain by skilled artisans

The Lindo Cajon can be played with a very light touch. You will hear with bright trebles and a powerful bass response. The cajon has a guitar string snare in a double V shape, which is easily adjustable without the need for tools – just use a coin! The Lindo cajon is finished with rounded edges, so as a result looks really smart. These also give the drum a very tactile quality. The drum is suitable for beginners, experienced and professional players.

The Lindo Cajon utilises Birchwood and Platanus Hispanica (London Plane), which is a native Spanish wood. The face, or tapa, of the cajon is made from birchwood. It has a bright appearance and provides a very responsive and snappy sound. Platanas Hispanica makes up the main body of the cajon. The Platanas Hispanica provides the deep and punchy bass tones and is a pleasing contrast with the light face of the Birch. On the back of the cajon we have the soundhole. Take a take a look inside to find four wound guitar strings. These strings form the v-shape snare which is heard when hitting the top part of the face of the cajon. They are extremely effective and pleasing to hear and can be adjusted with two screws on the underside of the cajon.

Tone and Technique

There is an array of tones which you can achieve when applying certain techniques to the face of the Lindo cajon. When playing the top part of the cajon, this produces the rattle effect of the snare drum. In order to emulate the low-end bass tone of a kick drum, use the palm of the hand, striking further down the face of the drum. Strike the sides of the cajon and you’ll achieve a different tone altogether akin to a tom drum. Use the fingertips for effective drum rolls, flurries and ghost notes. See the Lindo demo video to explore all the features of this cajon and see a full play through demo to hear what it sounds like. Like a drum kit in a box, so is brilliant for jamming with friends. Helps the player to keep time and great for practising drum patterns and beats.

  1. Mr M jones

    Very pleased with my Lindo does sound better than I expected would recommend to anyone

  2. JR

    Excellent build quality and plays very well, lovely deep bass and a raspy snare….. just need to improve my playing skills now!

  3. LondonTechie

    Great Cajon – Already recorded with it and sounded great. A lot of Cajon for the money

  4. W. Nieuwburg

    I had borrowed a cajon for a year and thought it was time to get my own as I play in 2 bands now. My eye caught this one and it looked nice. So I bought on and I am happy with it. I live in Jersey and it arrived before the proposed date. It is well made and I bought a Lindo cover for it separately. Accompanied with the cajon is a leaflet with a number to call in case of problems and you get straight through. All I need to do now is to adjust the snares

  5. Mike Re

    Sound across range is good. Size also good (I might be short – but a bit broad in the beam!). Appears to be well made and has a high standard of finish. Totally delighted with this drum.

  6. Vicki J.

    Excellent service, straight out of the box the product looks beautiful, lovely grain and very nicely finished. I am a drummer just branching out into this cajon world, so have no live comparison but it does seem to have some good colours of sound. Good bass end in the middle and a nice controllable snare sound at the top.

  7. Gordouli

    Gets a lot of great comments. Good size for a large adult (I’m over 6 foot). And easy to make a good sound in a band with very little training or practice.

  8. Peter Stone

    I chose the Lindo after looking at many others. I have never played one before but I do play Spanish guitar and was swayed by fact that it’s made in Spain. I wanted something of quality that would look good as well as sound cool. Immediately I opened the box I was impressed by the look and feel and couldn’t resist having a bash. It arrived just before Christmas, delivered the day after I had placed the order. The cajon is extremely well made with wonderful rounded edges and nice wood grain. It looks good and feels great to play. Its also functions as an extra seat when you have too many guests at Christmas time 🙂 I have it the corner of my living room and it doesn’t look out of place with my Spanish guitar next to it. This is an instrument you don’t have to hide away.

  9. Kelly Hayes

    Really good for a first timer!

  10. Emeka O

    Great bit of kit. I bought this thinking I was going to only be using for practice sessions but I’ve had to play weekly with a semi-acoustic band and it’s been loud enough to keep up. The carry bag is also great.

    The bass is great, to maximise it, I have a wall behind me when I play.

    It’s great on the fingers and totally responsive.
