Cajon

DG DEGREGORIO Cajon

DG-MAIN.jpg

DG Percussion was established in 2002, by Paolo De Gregorio after he realised that was a lack of good sounding Cajons in the market. And even if there was a good sounding Cajon, the price was too steep for most working Musicians.

Due to this fact, Paolo began to make Cajon has a small manufacturer, before expanding his workshop into a big warehouse, making thousands of Cajons a year. 

DG Cajons offers Cajons of all ranges and each Cajon is made with love and passion.

DG Cajons are endorsed by Dave Weckl, Sheila E, Steward Copeland and local artist Shawn Kok.

CAJÓN ZAMBO (Made in Spain)

The Zambo is two cajóns in one! The Zambo features the DG Snare Throwoff (pat.pend. n. BO2003A000172) which allows players to quickly engage or disengage the snares depending on the sound they want.

The snare tension can be fine-tuned via two small screws located opposite the throw-off knob.The snare mechanism itself features nylon-wound strings for a sound which is mellower and more earthy in comparison to our steel-stringed cajóns.

When the snares are disengaged, the Zambo takes on the sound of a typical Cuban cajón; woody and almost bongo-like. 
The Zambo is constructed of birch plywood with a 3-ply, 3 mm birch front-plate for projection and sensitivity. 
Watch the videos below and hear the Zambo's unparalleled sonic versatility for yourself.

DG CAJÓN BRAVO (Made in Spain)

This cajón features the same front panel of the top of the range Yaquí model, a 2 mm extra thin four plies birch wood with a venneer stamped on top.

DG DrumBox Cajon  (Made in Spain)

Meet the next evolution of the cajón: the DrumBox from DeGregorio. The DrumBox takes our top-of-the-line Maestral cajón with its patented tunable, replaceable front-plate (“tapa”) and adds another non-stringed bass-plate to the side of the instrument.

Using our patented DG Direct-Drive Cajón Pedal, you can play the bass-plate as an entirely separate kick drum, opening up a whole word of new sonic possibilities on the cajón.

Play the front-plate with your hands and use the pedal for accents, or set up a snare drum and hi-hat to create a unique, compact travel drumset. However you choose to play it, with the DG DrumBox the only limit is your imagination.

CAJÓN SIROCO (Made in Spain)

The Siroco marks a collaboration between two of Spain's most revered cajón craftsmen: J. Leiva percussion and DG DeGregorio. Combining J. Leiva's ingenious, patented collapsable cajón design with the DG Maestral tunable/ interchangeable front-plate system, the Siroco represents a new level of portability and versatility. 

The Siroco can be disassembled and put into its included carrying bag in under a minute. When collapsed, the Siroco measures 12x30x50 cm- only one-third of its original size- and can easily be placed in an airplane carry-on rack or under a seat. Because the Siroco is no bigger than a laptop bag or briefcase, it goes wherever you do.

 

But the real magic of the Siroco is its tone. Made from the finest birch plywood, the Siroco comes standard with two beautiful birch front-plates (a 2 mm with rosewood veneer and 3 mm natural birch), and it has the punchy low-end, crisp highs, and feather light snare response of all of our top-of-the-line DG cajóns. It also comes equipped with the DG quick-release snare system for easy independent adjustment of the snare wires.

Watch the videos below to see and hear the Siroco yourself, or play one at your local DG dealer.

 

The mounting and dismounting operation takes less than a minute, and this amazing possibility does not affect the tonal qualities of the cajón, which are of the highest standard.

Its specific dismounting compact core contributes containing resonance, thus making it the perfect cajòn for touring situations, with different stages and michrophones every night. It also features removable snare systems, so it is bringing in another useful maintenance option. Provided with a padded carry bag and an extra free sound board.

Siroco, the most complete and versatile cajón on the market.
