Handmade Ambrosia Maple Hardwood Electric Hand Drum, Beat Box, Cajon Drum
All of our hand drums are made from premium hardwood, no plywood or pressboard! We do not stain or paint any of our drums, but apply several finishing coats of lacquer to show off the natural wood grain.
Choose from 4 different woods (shown in the listing photos): Ambrosia Maple, Mahogany, Cherry, and Walnut. Please note that the wood grain will vary from drum to drum. Ambrosia maple wood varies greatly and can be very light with little variation or very dark with grain contrasts and worm holes. Cherry wood is our second lightest wood and is fairly consistent. Mahogany is a darker reddish wood. Walnut wood is our darkest, please note that walnut wood may not show engraving as well as the other woods.
Each box is hand made. This hand drum is 11.5”x9”x2” with a standard jack socket that will plug into your amp or sound board with any standard ¼” instrument cable. We sound tested many different sizes and woods to get the best sound from our drums. This hand drum’s size makes is easily portable, but produces great sound quality for your percussion needs.

Tips for Choosing the Right Wood
~Wood color and grain vary from piece to piece, even wood in the same species.
~Walnut wood, although normally darker, can have lighter contrast and the color can vary greatly.
~Ambrosia Maple wood, also known as Ghost Maple, also has varying color and grain. Although normally light, ambrosia maple wood is known for its dark grain contrasts, adding brown, gray, and bluish highlights to the wood. Ambrosia Maple wood also has worm holes. The worm holes and darker grain highlights come from the Ambrosia Beatle Inhabiting the Tree before it was harvested, hence the name “Ambrosia Maple”.
~Cherry wood and Mahogany wood have the most consistent coloring, although Cherry wood will turn darker over time.
-We select specific cuts for each drum, but if you have a specific preference, would like a lighter piece of walnut, an ambrosia maple piece with a lot of grain contrast, etc., please note your preference on your order and we will do our best to pick a piece to your request.
*Note: Please note the wood grains for all woods will vary from drum to drum, and the worm holes(a characteristic of Ambrosia Maple Wood) will vary from drum to drum.
