Overview

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.

        LP manufactures the best instruments. Cabasa sounds amazing. Very responsive at different dynamics. I should have bought one several years ago.

          Comments about LP234A Standard Wood Afuche/Cabasa:

          I purchased this on behalf of my son who is a band member and music producer of Eye in I. They do both accoustic shows and full band electric shows. He best described it to me as a sound that you can't quite distinguish from other instruments, but you'll miss it if it's not there. He loves this cabasa and has had other musicians offer to buy it from him because they love the sound of this particular model.

                    This is a great little instrument with a big, crisp, sound. It is easy to play and can be used to produce a variety of sounds. It may not be well-suited to smaller spaces due to how loud it can be.
