Introducing the Percussion Plus Honestly Made large gourd cabasa

This colourful cabasa from the Percussion Plus Honestly Made range is made from a gourd which has been dried out and hollowed. Dozens of beads are suspended by a web of string around the outside of the instrument, while the hollow centre amplifies the rattling sound and projects it.

As they are made from naturally grown gourds, sizes will vary, especially from season to season. This creates a wonderfully unique instrument, which is always expertly crafted in Ghana using environmentally friendly techniques.

Each instrument is hand made using traditional materials and methods. See below for more information about the Honestly Made range of 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.

A classic cabasa sound

Modern cabasas are made using metal beads wrapped around a metal cylinder. This instrument is made from natural materials, much like the original African cabasa. It produces a gentler, more earthy sound. Play it by rolling it in your palm or between your hand and leg.
