The Hillside Drum Company was founded in January 2017 by Eric Thomas. It all got started when his previous Cajon Drum had broken. Instead of purchasing a new one, he decided to try building one himself. Satisfied with the results, he quickly began receiving orders for custom Cajon Drums. The appeal that stuck out to most individuals was the ability to design their dream Cajon drum and have it come to life at a price that simply couldn’t be beaten. We thank you for stopping by our website and hope to build a custom-made Cajon drum for you!

If anyone is looking to get a great cajon, while also supporting a local brand, this is the way to go! I am lucky enough to have my own Hillside Cajon, and they are top of the line! The craftsmanship is unmatched. You will not be disappointed!
I was looking for a cajon to add to my other percussion instruments and an article about Hillside Custom Cajon Drums popped up on my Facebook. I checked them out, got in contact, and started building my drum. I got updates throughout the whole process and was able to completely customize my cajon! The sound quality is amazing. This has truly been an asset to my other percussion instruments! Can’t wait to start performing with it!
“This Cajon ROCKS. I’ve been playing it at my church for almost two months now and the feedback from the congregation has been overwhelmingly positive! The sound coming out is amazing, there is a nice separation of tones depending on the striking location which provides for nice layering. The drum is incredibly sturdy too! This is a great drum at a great price!”
