The LP234B Large 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.
Large size. Wood flanges and handle.

Comments about LP234B Large Wood Afuche/Cabasa:
As a percussionist in a local jazz/fusion band, I need a lot of smaller percussion instruments to create those ambient, acid like sounds. Although this may not be the biggest or the most expensive item at my disposal, but it is the smaller things like these that are essential in creating a great show with all the final touches. Finest cabasa available for the price.
