One of the more unusual introductions at the 2016 NAMM Show was the Roland EL Cajon EC-10 – an acoustic + electronic hybrid cajon that combines acoustic cajon performance with the ability to layer in 808 and other electronically-generated sounds.
So, if you’re looking for a hard kick in your cajones, look no further.
Australian music gear retailer Kosmic is one of the first companies to get their hand’s on Roland’s new cajones, and they shared a new demo, embedded above, which highlights not only the El Cajon’s acoustic capabilities, but its electronic ones, too.
