Lion Cajon Drums


Lion Cajon Drums went out of business on 20th January 2016. They posted this message on their Facebook page

Well here goes. Not the news we wanted to give you. As from tonight, Lion Cajons will be closed. We are just not viable as a business any longer. We have no choice but to close, it’s a bad time for the drum business and small businesses like us don’t stand a chance. We’ve had a fantastic few years and met some fantastic people. Me and Clare would like to thank each and every one of you that’s given us support over the years, it really has been appreciated xx
