A Kiwi Original - Phill Jones - Tukituki Instruments - Episode 93
Phill Jones has been hand-making cajon box drums from his workshop in Hastings since 2009. In our chat, we discuss the handmaking process and what inspires Phill to make this unique Peruvian instrument in New Zealand.
People love the sound of Phill's drums. They have been used by bands across Aotearoa and in the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra.
