Based on the Xequebalde, a Brazilian folk instrument, the new Gon Bops Bucket Shekere is the first of this instrument to be manufactured outside of Brazil. Quite literally a hybrid of a metal bucket and a shekere, the Bucket Shekere can be played in hand like a traditional shekere, or placed on a stand – a snare stand works perfectly – and played with brushes. Designed to be super light, for long-playing comfort, it provides a rich, warm percussive attack. It’s crafted from lightweight aluminum, and its shell stands 8” in height with a 12.5” opening.
