These mini cajon hand shakers are made with the same quality mahogany ply tapa material as our CajonTabs. Our design utilizes various thicknesses of wood to create different shake sounds depending on how you hold the shaker.
Shaking so that the split green peas inside strike the mahogany tapa material will create a loud, bright shaker sound. Holding the shaker so the peas strike the side walls will create a separate, more subdued sound.
This shaker is intended to provide versatility in a small, extremely portable package. Add this instrument to your traveling percussion quiver to add sizzle, rain effect sounds, clap sounds, and maraca sounds. Add the pair, and play paradiddles and other patterns for unique percussion accompaniment.
These aren't your average mass produced shaker. We make these by hand from solid poplar and the same quality tapa material as we use in our CajonTab® and full size cajon drums.
