Small but punchy!
DIRTYFONK, 07.07.2015
I confess i should have checked the specifics, i had wanted some larger or what i would consider regular sized maracas, but after some amusement at seeing this shrunken pair i got around to trying them out and was quite pleasantly surprised.
The sound has good a edge and presence for such small maracas (obviously lesser than full sized tho ) and the contents are well controllable, perhaps only larger 'swishes' are less effective because of the smaller surface to roll around.
If you haven't played maracas or you only require their minimal use now and again this could be a good place to start. They are acceptable for studio use - miced and recorded, probably not good live, but if there is a place in your music for maracas then their should be space in your music for maracas, so if there's not a stack of marshals to compete with onstage you may be able to get away with playing them in front of the mic .
So i would say the sound is good for what it is , it is only slightly limited because of it's size.
The quality is good - wooden handles and skin but bound and not riveted. When they are well shaken i can see some fine particles / dust exiting from the heads - hopefully this does not mean they are disintegrating - I wouldn't have thought so tho. On the whole well made, good sound, small but very usable.

These are fine for any starter but as a pro musician it's an area where I'll be looking to upgrade very soon. Fine for kids, good for the price and a reasonable product.

Ideales para llevar siempre encima
Pedro294, 05.10.2012
Estas maracas son el complemento ideal para llevarlas de un lado a otro simplemente depositándolas en el bolsillo de la chaqueta.
Tienen un sonido realmente bueno, regulable según como coloque la mano sobre ellas.
Al principio el sonido resulta demasiado seco, pero al final te acabas acostumbrando.
El aspecto es inmejorable, ya que el remate de cuero es muy agradable, tanto visualmente como al tacto.
La calidad está muy desproporcionada respecto al precio, que es ridículo.
En mi caso, que toco en un grupo de boleros, todos los integrantes tenemos unas, ya que son muy socorridas para sacarlas en cualquier momento.

Très bons hochets polyvalents et pratiques
BastienT, 19.06.2015
Simples et efficaces, le son n'est ni trop fort ni trop aigu, ils n'encombrent pas... Une étoile en moins parce que la fabrication fait un poil jouet/plastique mais sinon ils sont bien.
