Top-notch acoustic sounds combined with a Roland sound module

Already a top-notch acoustic instrument in its own right, the Roland EC-10 EL Cajon is loaded with a Roland sound module, providing you with a massive palate of sounds. You can supplement your rhythms with a layered tambourine and djembe, create a backbeat with acoustic or electronic snare sounds, or add low-end drama with an electronic kick. Enhance the EC-10 EL Cajon's natural sounds with studio-optimized cajon sounds. At Sweetwater, we're impressed by the realistic touch response provided by the EC-10 EL Cajon's quality sapele playing surface and independent head and edge sensors.

Straightforward controls make performing easy and natural

The Roland EC-10 EL Cajon's sound controls are top-mounted for quick access. Dedicated buttons scroll through sounds categories, while other buttons select individual instruments. A rear-mounted Volume knob controls your electronic sounds' levels, and a Trigger Balance knob adjusts the balance between head and edge sensors. Trigger sensitivity is also easily tweakable.

Battery-powered w/ built-in speaker for all-in-one performance

Just like a traditional cajon, the Roland EC-10 EL Cajon is self-contained and easily portable. An integrated amplifier and speaker deliver high-quality sound that's loud enough for acoustic gigs, and six AA batteries powers the EC-10 EL Cajon for up to 12 hours. An Electronic Sound Out jack lets you connect the EC-10 EL Cajon to a PA system for larger performances. A Mix In jack allows you to connect your smartphone or iPod for backing tracks or break music. Of course, you can always turn off the electronics for a traditional cajon experience!

First cajon for me but love it!

I love the variety of sounds on the fly. I have only been playing for about a month. I am impressed how long the batteries last also.

the box

to much fun, I would like a little deeper bass but match it with a small kick and you can get almost a complete rock sound etc. our drummer does rock candy on it lol. I plugged it into my 100 watt fender bass amp and it roars

EC-10 Cajon

The EC-10 Cajon is great. I love the additional sounds that you can play, in addition to the regular Cajon. Provides a wider range of music you can adapt to. It has great sound when hooking into an Amp. Like that you can play on battery power also and still use speaker. The only draw back I have found is connecting an I-pod or other music player thru the system the speaker is not powerful enough to carry clear sound and play the Cajon thru the same speaker, but hooking to an Amp takes care of that. Would recommend this Cajon to anyone that is serious about playing with a group or band........... Recommend buying from Sweatwater Sound, the guys were great and follow-up has been spot on. Drum shipped quickly and the rep called the same night I ordered it to let me know it was shipped and on the way. Super service.....................

Useful but lack luster

I bought this to play in a small acoustic country band. The samples are ok but their volume levels vary too much. Couple that with the fact that there's no volume control for the line out and it quickly becomes frustrating switching between sounds during a song when playing live. I had to buy a volume control pedal to compensate. Since I own v drums I know Roland is capable of making something much better than this. For example, it would be nice to be able to assign the sounds you want to a user kit. But everything is preset and unchangable. Overall its better than just a wooden box sound because of all the samples so I'll keep it but I was disappointed.

The Roland EL Cajon is the most fun instrument I own. For starters, it plays wonderfully, and there are tons of great sounds onboard that I can use for all kinds of music. I love that it's battery powered, so I can take it camping or pretty much anywhere, and the sound quality is always excellent. The onboard speaker easily keeps up with acoustic instruments, but I also like playing my EL Cajon onstage, where I can plug into an amp or the PA and get all the volume I need.
