This listing is for a set of TWO rawhide rhythm shakers. Hand-crafted in the USA by a friend, from cowhide/rawhide leftover from the djembe drum making process. These hand made shakers have a crisp but organic and mellow tone. No two sound quite the same, they are filled with an assortment of beads, BB's, and other small additions. Nice addition to your rhythm section and perfect to bring along to your next drum circle, and for use in spiritual shamanic traditions. These all are unique, one-of-a-kind, and have little "imperfections" that illustrate the organic, handmade, natural look and feel of these shakers. They are about 2 to 3 inches in length/circumference depending on the shape. Some are roundish, some are elliptical or peanut-shaped. Each is unique and funky!*
If you have been in our Tree Of Life Designs booth at the many festivals we have been to, you probably know these shakers as "goat balls"! They are not actual goat balls, but we gave them a funny name because people loved it! We sell out of these at many of these events, folks love the organic feel of them and they fit in your palm nicely. Perfect for musicians and non-musicians alike, there is something quite soothing about playing them, they are simply fun and sound great!

*PLEASE keep away from dogs and cats, as these are made from rawhide and can become chew toys and are filled with tiny objects the pets could swallow!
