The BoxKit Pro Jr. cajon is a top-shelf instrument hand-crafted in the USA from the finest materials.  Featuring four distinct “tone zones” with dual adjustable snares.  Versatile enough to be played like a traditional cajon or “drum-set style.”

Crafted from hand-selected 11-ply and 3-ply plantation grown Baltic Birch, known for its warm, tight, controlled tones.  Constructed with dowel joinery to provide strength and durability, and finished with lacquer to allow the wood to breathe and the tone to shine through.

Dual adjustable snare system allows for independent control of the left and right side snares while playing the cajon traditional style (seated on the cajon while playing the front tapa).The snare system can also rotate to engage the top tapa while playing the cajon “drum-set style”(seated behind the cajon while playing the top and front/back tapas). The snare system also has two independent “mute” positions which eliminates the snare buzz altogether.

Large rubber feet enhance the low-end while improving the cajon’s overall resonance.

The BoxKit Pro Jr. comes with a unique riser/pedal mounting system that raises it to a comfortable snare drum height and allows it to be played “drum-set style” utilizing a bass drum pedal.

        Comments about Moravian Percussion BoxKit Pro Jr.:

        I wanted to get a cajon to use at small acoustic gigs with my band. I'd never owned one before, so I bought a cheap one at a local store just to see if I'd like it. It didn't take long to realize you get what you pay for. It was poorly constructed, and even with nothing to compare it to it just sounded "thin" -- no warmth or body. So I returned it.

        Then a friend told me about Moravian Builders, so I emailed and started a dialogue directly with the owner, Josh Trask. He was friendly and tolerated all my persnickety questions, so I ended up ordering a Box Kit Jr. in maple, with a custom paint job. These upgrades cost a little extra, but I wanted it to be special. I had faith in all the testimonials that it would sound great, and they were right. Josh actually sent me a loaner (the black birch model) when my order ended up taking longer than expected, which I thought was especially generous. It sounded great, so I was really anxious to get my custom job. I just received it this week and can say it was well worth the wait and the price.

        The solid, hand-made, artisan quality really stands out, and the finish is extraordinary. The custom paint job is sure to turn some heads, but even the stock black with the white logos (on the loaner) is striking. I'm still working on my technique with this thing, but so far I'm really impressed with the variety of tones I can get out of three surfaces and the different snare configurations. (By the way, if you look under the hood at the snare mechanisms the quality is apparent there too - especially compared to the cheapo I originally bought and returned. You get the sense these things are going to last.) It yields some incredible low end for its small size, and with the special kick beater it sounds like an 808!

        All in all, it's really a beautiful, quality instrument that you'll be proud to own. Most importantly, it sounds great. Anything hand crafted and unique like this is worth a few extra bucks in my opinion, especially if you know you'll get years of enjoyment out of it. I'm looking forward to doing just that, and would highly recommend checking out the Box Kit website before you buy any other cajon.

        P.S. I don't have an endorsement, and wasn't paid to write this! Just a satisfied customer.

          I've been playin' my BoxKit Jr. for about six months,in the country/bluegrass band I'm in. I've used it on stage,and in the studio,with outstanding results. You can tell,just by looking at it,that it is built with outstanding craftsmanship. Then you sit down and play it,and it sounds even better than it looks! If you think it's a bit pricey,trust me,it's worth every cent.You definitely get what you pay for.

            Comments about Moravian Percussion BoxKit Pro Jr.:

            As a professional touring and recording studio drummer, I was looking for a top quality Cajon to add to my acoustic percussion arsenal. I contacted Moavian builders and after three weeks of emails and conversations they started building my custom box. While I waited for my cajon to be built I was sent a stock cajon, from the first time I played it I was in love. When my custom box arrived I was in studio recording an album, the minute the producers put the mics to it everyone was beyond amazed. We recorded the tracks in which I used a cajon on, during mixing we found there were so many places to go with what we had recorded. The bottom end was so thunderous, I had recorded samples and they have been used on numerous tracks by various artist. Playing live acoustic shows and replacing my kit with the cajon has become fun and I ffel like I am able to capture the full spectrum of sounds I would on my kit. I am constantly getting compliments on my custom paint they provided me, that in itself wa a project and they worked tiredlessly to get it right. I am now a Boxkit Artist, everywhere i travel with my drums my cajon is right with me. I have played EVERY cajon on the market and I assure you none compare to this product. I am glad to see SamAsh carrying such a quality product.

            I use the BoxKit Jr for all my acoustic and recording settings and setups. This drum has excellent tones and huge sound. it has never disappointed me wherever I have taken it and its a great addition to any drum setup. When properly miked and with the pedal accessory plays and sounds like an actual drum set. Also sounds great when played with played with brushes and brooms. There is nothing not great about this product. I absolutely love it.

              Comments about Moravian Percussion BoxKit Pro Jr.:

              This instrument, the "jr" version of the regular boxkit is the MOST INNOVATIVE percussion instrument to come along in a very long time.

              The drum acts as an entire drumkit!

              Attach a bass drum pedal, and it plays just like a kick drum with tons of low end and very beautiful tone.

              The snare settings are super versatile too, and the high pitched "slap" and "tom" sounds make it very easy to compliment the groove with a little spice with absolute ease.

              This is an amazing instrument. Well crafted, very solid, and beautiful.

              Comments about Moravian Percussion BoxKit Pro Jr.:

              I am a working drummer in a big city and I use this product almost as much as a drum kit. It works amazingly well for quieter gigs and for aux percussion set ups. I have even used it to completely replace a drum set in certain situations. I would highly recommend this product to anyone wanting a more versatile set up. 5 stars!
