  • Great Gift Idea for Music enthusiast

    Bought for my dad for Father's Day-he is an avid salsa/carribean style music lover and enjoys playing along with his collection of over 25,000 songs. He's always asked us for a "morraca" style instrument for bday, etc.. but wanted one that does not sound like a baby rattle.. I came across this and he said the sound is awesome.. He wants to start up a salsa band..... Best gift he has received...

  • Great Instrument

    Makes a great shaker/maraca sound, can be played in several different ways: palm of hand on beads, shaking like a rattle, pulling on the junction of the strings at the top of the ball, etc.... each method produces a slightly different sound. Worked great in our drum circle!

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Seems sturdy, has a good tone.

  • sound is average

    Sorry but it doesnt impress me much. I love worldstock and fairtrade but I'm not all that impressed with the rattles so far. I expected better sound. They dont make much sound.

  • Very Nice Sound

    This is a great instrument. I bought it so my grandson and I could jam together. It is easy to play and makes a nice sound. It is a bit loud, so be prepared to rock the house!
