Building on the success of our original Kiyo model, we introduce Shamal. This updated and lighter version brings professional-level sound and innovative features to the entry-level market. Shamal has an all-birch plywood body, and it features our patented Pre-Tuned Tapa system- a system unique to DG.
We affix 10 snare-wires to the inner-side of the playing surface at optimal tension with high-strength thermic glue, allowing for a great, traditional snare sound without the the worry of actually tuning the wires. Like all DG cajóns, Shamal is entirely hand-made at our factory in Spain.
And just like every DG cajons, the front plate can be replaced thanks to the RTS system, ensuring a long life span to the instrument.
