An ultra-portable cajon drum with external snare

The CajonTab® is a patented (U.S. patent number 10,872,588) design.  We've sold thousands of CajonTabs® to people of all walks of life! Our drums are made in the USA and include a 60-day return policy.

About the CajonTab®

Our CajonTabs® come in various sizes. The 10" size has the highest pitch with the brightest snare tone.

We recommend the 10" size if you want a very small drum for travel, if you want your snare sound to be high and bright like a marching snare, or for beginners.

The 12" CajonTab®

Not too big, not too small

We recommend the 12" drum as our "all-purpose" CajonTab®.  Its not nearly as large as the 14" bass edition or a full size cajon drum, but it can still kick out a decent thump while maintaining a poppy snare tone.

Pro Series CajonTabs®

The Top Shelf

Drums designated as "Pro Series" have a few differences.  Instead of a plywood frame, these drums are made from solid wood.  We also add an extra inch of depth to the frame, making the tone even deeper and more resonant.

NEW: Handpans

9 note steel handpan, d-minor

Louson Drums is now selling handpans!  These amazing instruments are a relaxing blend of percussion and melodic music making. 

Financing Available

Let's face it... Handpans are expensive.  That's why we partnered with Klarna to bring you two financing options at checkout.  Klarna offers one option to split the bill into four payments at zero interest, or another option to apply for a line of credit with an interest rate (credit application).

Full size cajon drums

Yes, we make those too!

Unlike other cajon drums, our cajon design utilizes our unique patented external snare design!  This external placement gives our cajon more snare projection.  Plus its super easy to remove the snare! Just reach down and take it off!
