With it's Patent Pending snare system, and made from Quality hand selected Cedar plywood, this cajon sounds amazing, just like a drum kit in a box! The snare system is capable of fine tuning the tension, position, angle and amount of snare wire that touches the timber skin. Rockbox is the only cajon that can be tuned to suit left of right handed drummers, positioning the snare on the left, right or middle of the drum. It's this flexibility that gives the Rockbox cajon it's magical sound.

The Cedar timber used in it's construction gives the drum a mellow bass tone with a bright full snare sound.
Standard Rockbox Dimensions are:
Height 480 mm
Width 295 mm

Ther are some limitations that apply to this drum:
110 kg is the weight limit of the player sitting upon it.
The side panels are not to be played.
No warranty on this model.
Like any musical instrument there are limitations, you can't sit on your guitar or leave it in the sun.
The reason I don't give a warranty the standard model is due to the following:
If the side panels are hit with force it can potentially crack the bond between the front panel and sides.
It doesn't happen often (4 times in ten years) but it can happen.
This is the reason the pro model was designed, it has a 3 year warranty with none of the above
Which side do you need the snare positioned?
The best way to approach this is for you to sit on a chair and
pretend you are playing a Rockbox.
The bass tone is achieved by hitting your finger tips
on the middle of the drum.
Which hand would you naturally use to lean over and hit the bass?
If it's your right hand, the snare gets placed on the left side.
if it's your left hand you use for the bass,
then the snare is positioned on the right side.
