Great soft shake. I usually strap this to my feet and use it with a cajon, they are a great combo together. However it lends well as a shaker by itself and can produce a wide dynamic range. I like the option of using one of the shaker to produce an even softer tone. The sound is incredibly smooth and pleasing especially for bossa nova.
The casing is made of plastic, it feels durable but does not have a luxury feel to it. It is designed for the working musician and is all about the sound. It feels balanced in the hands and isn't heavy to hold. Would be suitable for something starting hand percussion as it is great value. Great sounds small price, what more can you ask for?
Previously I purchased one of the cheap plastic egg type shakers. Whilst that gave a nice bright and sharp percussive shake, I really was after something soft and more fluid, with the ability to really control the groove. This softshake is perfect, it produces an almost warm softness and having the two of them is great for two handed grooves. You can play them either vertically, horizontally or any combination to get short or long shakes, the sound is really wonderful and provides a wonderful contrast to the brighter and more crackling sound of the smaller egg models. Definitely my favourite percussion instrument so far!
