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.
