Is there some way to have the Kalimba Option for this? Is there a smaller bongo version available, but still has two chambers? Can I get a single clapper for the single cajon box? I have an order already in today for the kalimba & smaller box. If you have answers to these then can you hold that order and I’ll make up difference?
We could make a custom bar without a snare wire that a Kalimba could be attached to. It would be the same price as the stand alone Kalimba attachment, $49. If you would like to order one with a Bongo, just get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will set you up with an invoice!
Can you describe the tonal differences of the wood choices for the CajonTab Bongo? (I discovered this drum via Kalani, by the way.)
Kalani is awesome :)
The differences between these wood types is going to be very subtle if not indistinguishable. I think the cherry is probably the "warmest" tone and the mahogany probably has the most "attack", but these woods are fairly similar in density and weight. I recommend choosing for aesthetics instead of for a difference in tone between the woods.
Please contact me when you get cherry again available in the bongo. ALSO a kalimba attachment for this?
Hello! We just finished a batch of five yesterday. I am updating the website inventory now!
For the Kalimba attachment, we may need to make a custom bar for the bongo without the snare wire but I could do that at no additional charge. Just email me at email@example.com when you order and I'll make a note to change the attachment to bongo size (just pick 12 inch size at checkout)
Hi! Any advice on taking on a plane? Or not recommended? And is there no case for the bongo? Thanks, these look amazing!
Taking on a plane is fine! I personally would bring one as a carry-on and wouldn't check it. You definitely wouldnt want a baggage handler to chuck it on the conveyor belt!
And yes, there aren't cases for the Bongo yet. In a pinch you could purchase a case made for something like DJ equipment.
Thanks for checking us out!
