The shekere's history begins in Africa where this unique instrument serves as a shaker, a rattle, and a drum. Traditionally made from hollowed gourds wrapped in a lattice of stones, the instrument was, and is, played by shaking or twisting it to get shaker and rattle sounds or by hitting the bottom of the body with the palm of the hand to get drum like bass notes.

LP has created a number of different versions of the shekere all with excellent durability and a variety of sounds. Synthetic cord provides a great deal of flexibility allowing the beads to move freely, but controlled. This is great for faster playing and the execution of more complex rhythmic patterns. LP also uses very different materials for the bodies of the shekeres. Whether metal, plastic, or fiberglass, LP has a shekere for every need.

LP created the LP Pro Shekere based upon the gourd shape of the natural models. It incorporates a white fiberglass body that is wrapped in a lattice of JenigorĀ® plastic beads. It is the most durable and dependable shekere ever made.

The LP Pro Shekere produces loud, high-pitched shaker and rattle sounds. The large fiberglass body, thick neck and wide mouth produce extremely low bass tones when struck on the bottom. A rubber ring surrounds the mouth of the shekere to protect it. The attractive black and red beads and white body look great on stage!

Comments about Latin Percussion LP483 Pro Shekere:

Strong fiberglass, very cheap beads, poor sound & rattle. Not suitable for replacement of a traditional Shekere. Can be given as a gift to a toddler so, the noise will not drive you crazy.
