CAJON: Glen is an expert on this versatile, acoustic percussion instrument. It’s sometimes called, Drums in a Box because it can emulate everything from a full drumset (with “snare & bass drum” groove) to a percussion ensemble (“congas” and more).

HYBRID KIT

i) With my DTX502 drum module and drum triggers, my Acoustic Yamaha kit can be easily converted to a Hybrid Acoustic/Electronic kit.  Want some “handclap” layered to the acoustic snare? Fatten-up the floor tom?
