Albatros is an new version of the previous Bravo model, lighter in weight. An instrument for any player and any musical situation. We’ve taken the flamenco-style cajón and stripped it down to its most essential elements to bring you a Back-To-Basics cajón like no other.
The body of the Albatros is made from 100% first-grade birch plywood, and it features a thin 2mm, 4-ply birch front-plate for extra sensitivity (the same front-plate as our top-of-the-line Yaquí model), as well as a tunable snare-system with two steel-core strings.
Albatros is finished with a double coating of polyurethane satin lacquer. As with all of our instruments, the Bravo is handmade by DG artisans in 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.
