The Flagship features a Premium Snare arrangement which separates snare and bass sounds, giving you a clean fat bass tone in the center and super responsive snare in the corners. This cajon has two heads, one is a Pure Tone Head, and the other is a Slap Head, with adjustable timbre. The snares are on the Slap Head, and they can easily be adjusted to the player's preference or muted for a completely different sound, more akin to the Slap and Pure Tone cajons. The Pure Tone Head has no snare. The dimensions of this drum are 19"tall/14"wide/15"deep. It is made of birch with a clear polyurethane finish.
Nautilus Cajons are built by hand in Crestone Colorado by professional percussionist and custom cajon maker, Andy Skellenger.
