The Art Of Percussion
Rockbox was established in 2003 by Steve Ramsey in Manly, a suburb on the northern beaches of Australia.
Every drum is made with great care by Steve in his garage/converted workshop.
I wanted to design a drum that was versatile, portable, could be used as furniture, such as a seat or table.
A drum you could play with an acoustic guitar without disturbing the neighbours and also use it as a side-table
when not in use.
It had to look beautiful, sound like a full drum kit and be tough enough to last 20 years or more.
Something that needed virtually zero maintenance and was there- always in tune and ready for that spontaneous jam.
Finally after ten years making cajons, I feel I've reached my goal.
And here they are, the Rockbox Pro model.
