It’s January 8, 2014. The beginning of a new year.

2013 was a very exciting time for me. I first thought about building cajon drums three months ago. Since then, I have come so very far. I started out building my cajons using borrowed hand tools on a picnic table at a friends house between classes. I started perfecting my design, studying the physics of sound and the history of the drum. After that, I began studying woodworking. Although woodcraft is a skill that takes a lifetime to master, I have made a start.

Soon, I decided to start selling my drums. My homemade drums sounded better and had higher quality construction than the drums I saw in my local music shops. Once I found I could produce them for a competitive price without sacrificing quality I decided to go for it. Who wouldn’t? I’ve always loved a challenge and this business will challenge all of my favorite skills. My programming and web design background will help me build a great website, my 11 years of music experience will help me spread my name and my desire to find out how things work will help me push the envelope with my designs.

It may not look like much right now, but I have big plans for Quain Percussion.
