The Skinny Shaker is a thin wooden shaker with dual mahogany tapas. We use the same ultra thin mahogany plywood in these drums as our CajonTabs and cajons.
The thin tapa material helps to create a crisp and loud shaker tone. The shaker may be turned 90 degrees to create a "swish" sound.
The tapa material also allows the player to clap the shaker into the off hand, creating a slap tone which can serve as a "snare" sound.
