Roland EC-10 overview

  • 1Description

The Roland EC-10 Electronic Layered Cajon is a unique, versatile instrument that combines an authentic acoustic cajon with electronic percussion technology, letting you blend a range of complementary electronic sounds with the cajon voice. From traditional percussion instruments like tambourine and shaker, to acoustic snare, electronic drums, sound effects, and more, the EC-10 allows cajon players to easily enhance their music with layered electronic sounds.

The EC-10 features a total of 30 built-in electronic kits. Great for spicing up singer/songwriter gigs with layered acoustic-type sounds like the djembe, it also allows you to add backing beats 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.

Designed to be easy to use, the EC-10 also features intuitive panel controls for kit selection, level control, and head/edge balance, and is completely self-contained with battery power and onboard amplification.

  • Standard cajon size (50 x 30 x 30cm), with quality playing surface made of sapele wood
  • 30 built-in electronic kits for layering with acoustic cajon sounds
  • Each kit includes two independent sounds that can be triggered from the head and edge of the playing surface
  • Versatile selection of acoustic and electronic percussion sounds to support a wide range of music styles
  • Also includes studio-optimized cajon sounds to enhance the instrument’s acoustic sound, providing additional depth and punch while performing
  • Intuitive panel controls for kit selection, level control, head/edge balance, and more 
  • Integrated amplifier and coaxial speaker
  • Up to 12 hours of continuous playing time with six AA-size batteries

    Roland EC-10 reviews

    EC-10 Electronic Layered Cajon is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it. Mine came in perfect condition. The snare is far from weak. The amp/speaker is not weak either - it is at least as loud as the regular acoustic instrument, and mine is certainly louder, so that full volume is a bit too much. Besides, you can plug it into an amp or mic it if you need to - like any other cajon. The velocity sensitivity works great, and is completely adjustable. The only sounds that sound electronic are the few sounds that are supposed to sound electronic. The 20 settings that are acoustic sound great, and the 10 electronic sounds are so much fun to play with. You don't have to hit it so precisely. You certainly want the triggers localized, because you don't want to always hit the triggered sounds. That way, instead of the basically two sounds you normally get from a cajon, you can get many more varieties. I bought this for use in my professional band, and I'm glad I did. I would do it again. My drummer can now accompany me when I play what used to be solo gigs, when schlepping drums would not be appropriate. We can fit into more venues with this thing. That was the original reason for my purchase. Now - I am not saying that this is the best cajon on the market - that's a personal choice. I am saying that the instrument I received is of high quality, is very useful, and I have no regrets. I look forward to hearing what the future iterations of this great idea will sound like.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great instrument! Great sales support from B & H! As we downsize our home, I'm downsizing my drum kit to a Cajon - and loving the Roland EC-10 from B & H Phoro. My Cajon came just as advertised - but even sooner than promised.
