Introducing the Percussion Plus Honestly Made Seed shaker with handle

This small shaker from the Percussion Plus Honestly Made Range makes a wonderfully rustic rattle sound. Made from natural seeds that are typically sound in the Amazon, it has an equally rustic look with the hand woven band and wrist sling on the handle adding a splash of colour.

The shaker is made by collecting and drying seeds, which are then grouped together in clusters and attached to a bamboo handle. A simple design producing an effective warm and percussive sound.

This Peruvian seed shaker is sourced using Fair trade principles. See below for more information about the Honestly Made range of musical instruments from Percussion Plus.

These items are musical instruments not toys and there may be small parts on or in some of them. Younger players should use them under supervision.

The natural flow of the shaker allows you to playing it in several fun and interesting ways. Grip the bamboo handle and shaker into your other palm for a muted sound or twist between your fingers for a continuous rattle.
