Watch Video Demonstration of these Maracas
Shake things up with a pair of our beautiful wooden maracas. They’re easy and fun to play, sound fantastic and make a great addition to your percussion ensemble.
Our top quality maracas are extremely well made and handcrafted from tough, durable hardwood to deliver optimal percussion sound regardless of the style of music you and your group enjoy playing. The classic gourd shape ensures the familiar rattle sound will cut through loud and clear wherever you play – on stage, in rehearsals or in the studio. Thanks to the hand-painted mosaic dot design and loose collection of beads rattling around inside, no two of these maracas are ever exactly alike, varying ever so slightly in both look and sound.
Maracas are rattle idiophones native to Latin America, but their musical influence has spread beyond borders and is now widely used in many forms of pop, jazz and classical and even orchestral music. Learning to play maracas is fast and easy too, and you’ll have them mastered in no time. They are typically played as a pair in one hand with one maraca having a higher pitched sound and the other having a lower pitch for a complementary accent that’s full and loud. Just pick them up and shake, shake, shake your way to greater musical expression and percussion fun.
