Instruments that shake, rattle and roll have been an important part of handheld percussion for centuries in all types of cultures, all types of music. This pair of wooden egg shakers carries on that tried and true musical tradition and makes a great accessory for any percussionist.

Thanks to a smooth, ergonomic shape that fits comfortably and securely in your hand, our shakers are “egg-tremely” easy to hold and play. Just pick them up and you’ll be shaking your way to fantastic sound effects and greater creative artistic expression in no time.

Each egg is Grade A quality, handcrafted from real wood for added durability and available in your choice of four cool colors – red, natural, green or orange. They produce a warm, light sound that cuts through the music to create an interesting rhythmic accent that’s welcome in virtually any music situation. Maybe that’s why our Egg Shakers are catching on with percussionists at every level!

About the size of a real egg (only a lot less fragile), our egg shakers are widely used by seasoned pros, but they’re also great for teaching young beginners the art of percussion, timing and the finesse of holding a steady beat. Once you get your hands on a pair of our value-priced egg shakers, your only regret will be not buying and playing them sooner.


  • Great low price

This is the first time I purchased from X8.  I was pleased at how quickly my order arrived and most importantly, the quality of the product I received!

Wooden egg shakers, clear March 19, 2013
Reviewer: Barbara Gilles from Albuquerque, NM United States  
Good looking shakers, a deeper shade of "wood" than I expected (which is a good thing). Good, musical sound, not harsh at all.

Reviewer: Stanley from tampa, FL United States  
Simple light weight. I can play at any volume I want by muting them with my hand. Perfect for meditation.

Great for baby October 17, 2012
Reviewer: JK from Ann Arbor, MI United States  
I purchased the natural color egg shakers for my 10 month old son. These are well made and have a nice sound.

At an African percussion music session for kids at Animal Kingdom Lodge, my son fell in love with the wooden egg shaker they handed out to play. They are perfect for his little hands and great for teaching him rhythm. He's already learned to hold a steady beat.

After looking around a bit, I settled on these because there are no markings and no dyes to worry about when he decides to chew on these egg shakers.

The natural color shakers were out of stock originally when I went to order them, but X8 told me when they would be expecting more through online chat. I checked back and ordered them. The shipment came quickly and was packed well. I'm very happy with this purchase.
