Meh...

This is not a percussive instrument. I can't imagine anyone keeping the rhythm with these things.
It's two metal bead-shaped magnets. They produce sound similar to two big metal balls hitting each other, and then processed with a quick pitch shifting delay. So, you get something like a short "BZzzng".
You can make some frequency range of that sound ('more highs' or 'more mids') more pronounced, depending on the way you're holding the beads.
You can hold one bead and drop the second from 1-2cm. You can put ring finger between them, and then trigger the upper part of one of them using index finger, thus 'playing' it with a single hand.
All in all, a very limited range of sounds and very complicated to keep rhythm with. Also, the sound is not useful in most of the music genres. If you do need it, you'll probably sample it and then use beads as a fidget.

This is such a great and versatile toy!
With a little bit of creative imagination you can create all sorts of crazy noises with this. Highly recommended for the experimentalists!

Fun gift

It is basically two strong coated magnets which produce a hissing sound when they collide. A nice gift with an interesting sound.
One downside is that the surface is not entirely smooth and has bumps. Still, a great buy for the price!

Nice toy for making weird sounds

Nice magnets which must be thrown into air and they make sound. It might take some time to practice to get it work well each time.
