Maracas

Find the perfect set of maracas to complement a wide variety of musical situations. The huge selection below consists of quality maracas constructed from a variety of materials and come in different sizes to create distinctive sounds.

Maracas are a percussion instrument often used when playing rumba. The instruments are made by putting seeds or beans inside of gourds, although modern maracas are made of many materials, some of them are synthetic such as plastic. They are played by shaking the instrument. This causes the seeds inside the gourd to hit the inside of the instrument, causing sound. Maracas can also be played by hitting the body, as this creates a different sound than simple shaking.
