Introducing the Percussion Plus Honestly Made cabasa on a stick
This colourful cabasa from the Percussion Plus Honestly Made range features a large coconut shell attached to a stout wooden handle. Dozens of beads are suspended by a web of string around the outside of the instrument, while the hollow coconut amplifies the rattling sound and projects it well.
The wooden handle is tapered for better ergonomics, and the whole cabasa is polished to protect the player’s hands. It also has a perfectly balanced weight, which will allow you to keep a consistent sound and rhythm as you play.
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, similar to the original cabasa, and it produces a gentler, more earthy sound. Play it by rolling it in your palm or between your hand and leg.
