Pearl Percussion's always trying to find new ways to create cool percussive products. The new Maracabasa is one of them! This innovative instrument combines the functionality of a maraca and performance of a cabasa in a single hand-held instrument. The Maracabasa features a ribbed fiberglass body wrapped in wonderful shekere-style beads. When you shake them, they're like Maracas, or you can twist them to sound like a Cabasa! All on top a comfortable foam handle for less hand fatigue and solid grip. With the Maracabasa, you truly get the sound and power of two instruments in one hand.
