My wife has asked for a Cajon.
Recommendations welcome.

How much are you prepared to spend?

About 60 for a musical instrument, more if it would double as an attractive stool in the kitchen.

Schlagwerk CP404 (funky rather than pretty but very very good and within budget) (they also have a model for just about every budget -- I have the CP432)

If you're feeling spendier:

De Gregorio for some gorgeous designs and very high quality (but they're expensive)
Leiva for quality (but also expensive, but amazing quality for the money and some lovely designs - the Medina for example)
Sela (don't know much about them, but apparently quality and well made)

This is a very good price (I went all round the internet recently trying to find a good price for this model, and this is way below anywhere else) for what I think is a beautiful piece of work:

(Despite not owning one, I am very biased towards Leiva, as they're made not far from where I used to live in Spain. And as with De Gregorio they are made by a small company that seems to take a great deal of care in what it produces.)
