Beautifully and painstakingly inlayed, this Peruvian instrument has been designed to reduce the sound of snare wires when playing bass tones. This allows players to get the best sonic characteristics of both a traditional Cajon and a Flamenco Cajon. Includes free bag.

Overall, this was the best cajón on the floor at my L&M location. I gave the other brands a few slaps to hear the difference but clearly, Gon Bops was the one box that had a pleasantly rich sound to it. It's also gorgeous, with a classic, native Peruvian design and a glossy finish. I'm a beginner but I didn't want to have to upgrade later, which is why I decided to splurge and just get the best of what I could find. So far, I can't stop playing it. I love it, and it makes me happy.

I have own multiple Cajons in the past...and this one by far the best for sound and being simply rugged tuff! As a deep bottom end tone and a snappy snare sound that sound simply amazing acoustic ... also have not heard any sound man complain as of yet! Simply amazing Cajon with great value / price point.

Once I looked at it and, more importantly, tried it, I knew I would not settle for less. Visually, it's a work of art that you can be proud to display. Playing it is a joy. I purchased this out of interest, not profession, and it is easy for me to sound good on it. Yes you pay more than for other brands, but you really get what you pay for, and in the end, it's really not that much more money when you think of it being the only one you'll need. Every time I look at it I'm happy I went for it.

The bass stands out soo much compared to other cajons in which you hear the snare wires all over the instrument. Snare is crisp and clean, the wood bends well, quiet when you need it, loud when you need it.

Im so happy with this drum, miles ahead of any other cajon I've played and there's has been many. Deep base snapping snare and smooth middle tones. A work of art to say the least. Well done GonBops well done.

I was in the market for a cajon after Christmas and I tried every one in the store. I was only planning on spending half of what this cost but as soon as I heard the boom of the clean bass sound I had to have it. Such an amazing range of sound worth every penny.

The bass sound just blew me away. The snare sound is crisp, without carrying over into the rest of the drum. The other cajons that I've tried, sounded like someone kicking a paper bag...BP

This is probably the most amazing sounding cajons on the market, in my opinion. I purchased mine prior to the price increase, so I can't give it a 10 for value, since it was a BIG increase. It would be nice if the snares were adjustable, however the bass separation is second to none. Gon Bops and Alex Acuna went above and beyond to create this work of art, with quality far exceeding anything I have seen with LP, Tycoon, and especially Meinl, who are three of the other major brands that you can find often.

I've tried lots of cajons and this one blew them all away, I couldn't leave the store without it. Other cajons sound like wooden boxes, but this one makes the leap to quality musical instrument. The design is gorgeous and the quality and construction is top notch. The joints are dovetailed rather than glued and the drum is made in Alex Acuna's homeland of Peru. The wires inside the drum are placed diagonally across the corners rather than up and down across the front as in other cajons. This feature allows for a really clean bass tone and way more bass than any other cajon I've heard. The snare tones are crisp and snappy. You can get many sounds out of this drum with some experimentation. You'll spend a little more on this cajon but it's very much worth it. If you're looking at cajons I can't recommend this model enough.

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, woodwind pads, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year. Pricing for used electronic products is 4% of the original new selling price.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: $40 flat rate up to $2,000 of current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years.
  • BRASS and STRINGS: 2% of the current new selling price above $2,000.
  • WOODWINDS: 4% of the current new selling price above $2,000.
