Specially developed to give Ultra High Definition clarity, the Kandu Tempest family of cajons features a double-width pair of high-quality multi-wire snares that produce a distinct and exciting sound all its own.
Full separation between bass and snare enables a deep, pure-sounding bass at the bottom and a sizzling snare at the top. If you're searching for a cajon that gives you the sound of a drum kit – look no further.
With a wide spectrum musical voice, Tempest is the perfect cajón to blow up a storm in multiple genres, including folk, pop, world, ethnic, rock, house, reggae and dub.
Kandu's take on a traditional flamenco cajon, the Flame family embodies several unique features all its own. With a parallel pair of full-length multi-wire snares, these drums weave the sound of the snare inside the bass for a more traditional sound, without ever compromising the fullness of the bass.
The Flame burns brightly when played with flamenco, jazz, single songwriter and Middle Eastern music, along with multiple other genres. Created to be highly sensitive to the touch, they are the cajon of choice for musicians who love to use brushes.
Kandu's entry-level cajon is based on the Tempest family, which features a full separation between bass and snare. The Diesel's thicker tapa results in a higher pitch for both bass and snare, and is lovingly sanded to achieve a vintage look and feel. The Diesel comes in Kandu's own unique finish, made from our special formula of water-based lacquer and organic wax, and receives the same concentration of details in every line and curve. While we call it entry-level, the Diesel can be played at any stage of the game – from students to professionals.
This smaller version of the Diesel is also based on the Tempest family, with full separation between bass and snare. Created especially for schools and drum circles, the Compact is as wide as the Diesel, but shorter, enabling young musicians to sit correctly with their feet touching the ground. The Compact comes in Kandu's own unique finish, made from our special formula of water-based lacquer and organic wax, and each one is lovingly made with the end-user in mind.
The Traveler may be our smallest cajon, but it will surprise you with its vast, vast sound. It's created using the same concentration of details, with the same high quality materials as every Kandu instrument. Sometimes the best things really do come in small packages, and with plenty of house colors to choose from, all finished with our own special formula, the Traveler is ideal for both children starting out on their musical journey, and seasoned musicians always on the go.
