Unique and versatile, the ELCajon EC-10 allows cajon players to easily enhance their music with layered electronic sounds. To start, the EC-10 is an authentic acoustic cajon that sounds great on its own. What’s more, it has Roland’s renowned electronic percussion technology built in, letting you blend a range of complementary sounds with the cajon voice, from traditional percussion like tambourine and shaker to acoustic snare, electronic drums, sound effects, and more. Completely self-contained with battery power and onboard amplification, the ELCajon EC-10 puts the dynamic world of hybrid percussion in the hands of every cajon enthusiast.
The EC-10M intelligently senses when its mic is picking up sounds from the head and edge of your cajon’s playing surface, so you can trigger different electronic sounds from each area. This allows you to perform in expressive new ways while still using conventional cajon playing techniques. Play tambourine by hitting the edge, for example, and achieve a fat cajon bass by striking the head. The EC-10M includes 16 kits covering a variety of percussion or electronic drum sounds. And with the flexible Mic/Mix and Electronic outputs, you can mix acoustic cajon and electronic sounds together or route them separately to two channels on an amp or PA.
The EC-10M includes a built-in looper for the onboard electronic layered sounds. This lets you create instant percussive loops and phrases, freeing you up to play your acoustic cajon over the top. The looper is controlled using the A/B foot pads, making it easy to manage while you play. Any electronic sounds triggered from the cajon and external pedals can be included in your loops. And if you change the preset kit sound while the loop is playing, the tones in the loop are changed too. With the EC-10M, you’re able to transform your acoustic cajon for any performance or musical style.
The EC-10M ELCajon Mic Processor is a unique and innovative creative instrument designed for the acoustic cajon. It reinforces and amplifies your cajon sound so that your performance can always be heard, whether you’re playing in small bars or on large stages. The EC-10M also features a compressor and enhancer to adjust the sound so that it really cuts through when played during a band performance.

Each of the EC-10M’s 16 preset kits include two electronic sounds that are pre-assigned to the onboard A/B foot pads for triggering with toe taps while performing. If you’d prefer to play these sounds with authentic foot techniques and a more solid feel, up to two Roland kick-trigger pedals (KT-10, KT-9, or KD-7) can be connected, allowing you to trigger cowbell and foot splash sounds, or even four-on-the-floor kick drum patterns.
Thanks to its compact size and versatility, the cajon has become the most popular instrument for on-the-go percussion, from local jams and street busking to nightclub performances and beyond. With its built-in Roland sound module and independent head and edge sensors, the EC-10 extends the cajon’s organic simplicity to open new dimensions of expression for any musical style. Spice up singer/songwriter and combo gigs with layered tambourine or djembe, add backbeats with an acoustic or TR-808 snare, or bring in some low-end thump with an electronic kick. Studio-optimized cajon sounds are also on hand to enhance the acoustic cajon voice for more depth, dimension, and punch.
The top-mounted sound controls on the EC-10 are designed for quick access and easy operation while playing. Dedicated buttons are used to scroll through sound categories, while neighboring buttons allow you to select a number of variations within a category. After that, just twist the rear-panel Volume knob to control the level of the layered sound, and use the Trigger Balance knob to adjust the balance between the head and edge sounds. You can also tweak the trigger sensitivity for your personal style and touch.
Part of the cajon’s enormous appeal is that it’s self-contained and uncomplicated. While the EC-10 contains high-tech electronics, it fully maintains the organic, go-anywhere vibe that cajon players love. The integrated amp and coaxial speaker provide high-quality sound for keeping up with acoustic guitar amps and other instruments, and six AA batteries deliver up to 12 hours of power for long jams anywhere. There’s also a handy input for playing music from a smartphone or song player at home or on the gig. And because the EC-10 is a true acoustic instrument, you can always turn off the electronics and play it like any regular cajon. On top of that, it even functions as an extra seat in a music room or family space when you’re not playing!
