The LP234A Standard Wood Afuche/Cabasa is the second instrument that Latin Percussion founder Martin Cohen patented. Developed more than 30 years ago the afuche or cabasa is now one of the world's most popular hand percussion instruments.
The LP Afuche/Cabasa creates rhythmic scraping sounds and patterns. Loops of steel-bead chain wrapped around a specially textured stainless steel cylinder creates the distinctive sound as the chain vibrates against the cabasa's wooden flanges and cylinder. The percussionist grasps the afuche with its wooden handle manipulating the beads against the textured steel or spinning the cabasa or shaking it for a variety of sounds.
The LP cabasa is an essential instrument for creating percussive effects that should be in every percussionist's arsenal.

Nice sound for the cost.
This is one of my best purchases, i have plated in countless types of bands, and somehow i seem to be using this in every one. It has a great disctinct sound that people will love, its easy to play and has a great value. i recomend it.
I simply love this cabasa. Latin Percussion is one of the best brands out there and they have never let me down in anything they make. I had first used this in a school band as an accessory part in one song. I could not believe the quality of the sound of this cabasa and for the price it is a steal. After using this that once , I decided to go out and buy one for myself and I have no regrets in buying it.
