SKU: DGC10 Category:


In another patented first from DG, we proudly present our flagship Maestral cajón- the world’s first truly tunable cajón. Rather than using simple wood-screws to affix the front-plate to the body, the Maestral system uses 18 stainless-steel hex-bolts which screw into threaded brass inserts. The top 7 bolts also have counter-nuts to keep them at whatever tension you set them, no matter how hard you play. The Maestral system allows you to easily change front-plates in under 10 minutes to find the sound and look you want, even including custom printed front-plates.

The body of the Maestral is made from 9 mm first-quality birch plywood, and it comes standard with two interchangeable birch front-plates: one 2 mm and the other 2.5 mm.
The snare-system features two independently adjustable steel-core strings, along with 6 Velloc® overtone control strips.

    Gustavo Moreno

    A truly great cajón !! Its tone is round, warm, beautiful and very musical. Very crisp and precise on the high end with enough snares presence and sensitivity. The low is resonant, warm and deep. A very well balanced instrument that delivers good sounds on both ranges high and low. Perfect for flamenco and many more styles as well as studio applications.
    Overall, a good quality and tone instrument with accurate and balanced sound.
