This percussion instrument is 2 in 1. It can be played with one hand by shaking it, creating a sound similar to a large egg shaker, or alternatively as a guiro by tapping and scraping it with the beater. Making it ideal for kids or adults to explore different tones, textures and rhythms all in one handy little instrument.
The beater can be stored by inserting it into the base of the handle when you are using it as a shaker.
With the translucent plastic, you are able to see the beads moving inside when you play, adding to the fun for smaller kids learning at school, and adding an element of kinetic learning.
