A hybrid electronic-acoustic cajon for the adventurous hand percussionist.
The DG De Gregorio Centaur is an electronic-acoustic cajon which is the product of a cooperation between DG De Gregorio and ErmanitoPlay. It is a top of the range acoustic cajon which features an electronic part consisting of three trigger pads, that act as launching module for a set of 30 digital sounds contained in an SD card, which can be edited and customized by the user, effectively making its sound palette endless.
The essence of the cajon has been carefully respected, having been developed in close cooperation mode with some of the best players in Spain by one of the leading specialized cajon brands.
The Centaur is first and foremost, a beautiful sounding cajon, with a very sensitive and responsive frontplate, and a tunable snare system. The special contour of the frame is ergonomic and suitable for correct hand positioning and technique. It features a unique panel profile, that thanks to its slightly reduced size in comparison to the cajon frame, and the numeric control placement of the screw holes, allows repeated substitutions of the playing surface if needed, thus enlarging considerably the life span of the instrument.
As for the electronic part, the three pads placed by the side, can either be used as an accessory, and reached while playing the acoustic front plate, or they can be played as if they were the actual front plate of the cajon, with the same hand positioning of an acoustic instrument, by just turning the seating position 90 degrees to the right.
The pads are very responsive, and they feature a velocity and sensitivity control at the back of the cajon.
They are easy to play, and allow several hand techniques to be put to use.
