Siesta: Thunder Shaker

Instruments | Percussion

Publisher: Siesta
Format: Instruments | Instrument
The Siesta range of instruments originate from the endeavor to trade fairly and ethically with communities and makers all over the world, from Kenya and Nairobi to Bali and India. By working closely with small co-operatives and local suppliers, Siesta instruments are all produced using local materials and with methods that are in some cases centuries old.

This Thunder Shaker is capable of creating an endlessly-varying cacophony of explosions, crackles, scrapes and rumbles. The resonant chamber has a diameter of 83mm and a depth of 255mm, and is able to produce strikingly loud thunder effects that transcend its size and materials. An inspirational addition to any percussion collection!

          Cool instrument - that makes our kids wonder "what the hell is happening". Uses the metal-spring-wire placed on a plastic drum-skin at one end of the "pipe" to make sound - bit of the same as the skin on a banjo. A bit "Overrated" in the productinfo-text -because that it does make "extra-terrestial" sound - but there are limits - due to it's size and construction. I would, though, love to hold one say "100cm long and 40cm diameter" one of the same kind - and shake such a thing. The thought behind this thing is "superp". For the money and for smaller kids, this is a good investment. For the bigger kids, it can inspire as a model for a "make-it-yourself" instrument-project.
