It goes off like a shot! Live forward chamber and silent back chamber offer loud and penetrating shots – something that will be appreciated by players on noisy stages with monitors blaring. The durable anodized red metal body plays nice tricks with stage lights. Two shakers come in each box, facilitating double-handed patterns. When players find themselves with just the “down stroke” to worry about, they can create amazingly intricate rhythms, as if they were playing with sticks.
