Roland El Cajon EC-10M Mic Processor
A mic-processor to enhance and complement your acoustic cajon
The EC-10M ELCajon Mic Processor is a unique and innovative creative instrument designed for the acoustic cajon. It reinforces and amplifies your cajon sound so that your performance can always be heard, whether you’re playing in small bars or on large stages. You can also perform with additional sounds such as tambourine, shaker, djembe, and electronic drums. Adding an EC-10M to your set-up turns a standard acoustic cajon into an instrument that can cover a world of percussion. In addition to a standard acoustic cajon, you can also use the EC-10M with various other instruments by simply attaching the dedicated clip-on mic, such as mini cajon, an acoustic guitar or even a cardboard box. The acoustic cajon playing experience is reinvented and extended with the EC-10M ELCajon Mic Processor.
Add electronic percussion sounds to your acoustic cajon’s sound palette just by attaching the dedicated clip-on mic
With the EC-10M, it’s easy to take your acoustic cajon performances to new heights. Just attach the dedicated clip-on mic to the cajon’s sound hole, and then layer the EC-10M tones with the acoustic sound to create unique hybrid sounds. The 16 kits include percussion sounds like tambourine, surdo, splash cymbal, and many others, plus acoustic snare drum and the famous Roland TR-808 snare. Built-in acoustic cajon tones with extra ambience are also included for reinforcing your acoustic cajon’s natural voice with a powerful studio sound.
Light, Compact, and Battery-Powered with up to 5 hours* of battery life
You can use the compact EC-10M anywhere, since it weighs just 500 g/1.1 lbs. and runs on four AAA batteries. The included clip-on condenser mic is compact and convenient, eliminating the need to take up valuable stage space with a mic stand and large microphone. Thanks to its small footprint, the EC-10M can fit into even the tightest performing spaces.
*Battery life varies depending on the usage
Perform using your hands and feet
The EC-10M applies a distinct instrument sound to the center of an acoustic cajon’s playing plate, while another separate sound is applied to the top edge. Each of the EC-10M’s 16 preset kits include two electronic sounds that are pre-assigned to the onboard A/B foot pads, for triggering with toe taps while performing. If you’d prefer to play these sounds with authentic foot techniques and a more solid feel, up to two Roland kick-trigger pedals (KT-10, KT-9, or KD-7) can be connected allowing you to trigger cowbell, foot splash or even four-on-the-floor kick drum patterns.
*A splitter cable (such as the optional PCS-31L) is required to connect two kick trigger pedals to the EC-10M.
