Latin Percussion Pro Shekere LP483
The shekere’s history begins in Africa where this unique instrument serves as a shaker, a rattle, and a drum. Traditionally made from hollowed gourds wrapped in a lattice of stones, the instrument is played by shaking or twisting it to get shaker and rattle sounds or by hitting the bottom of the body with the palm of the hand to get drum-like bass notes.
Durable white fiberglass body is wrapped with a lattice of Jenigor plastic beads
The most durable and dependable shekere ever made
Loud, high-pitched shaker and rattle sound
Large fiberglass body, thick neck, and wide mouth produce extremely low bass tones when struck on the bottom
A rubber ring surrounds the mouth of the shekere to protect it
Attractive black and red beads, hand strung in the finest traditional fashion, and white body look great on stage
