The Afuche/Cabasa has become the most popular hand percussion instrument ever created! The cabasa was designed to create rhythmic scraping sounds and patterns. Beads can be rotated around the textured steel or the instrument can be spun or shaken for varying sounds. The Afuche/Cabasa is constructed using endless loops of steel bead chain wrapped around a specially textured, stainless steel cylinder. Plastic flanges enclose the cylinder and a plastic handle is attached to the bottom. This smaller model provides more control and softer volumes.Features:Create rhythmic scraping soundsCan be spun or shaken for varying soundsUses endless loops of steel bead chain wrapped around a specially textured, stainless steel cylinderPlastic flanges and handleProvides more control and softer volumes
