An ingeniously simple and effective new rhythm instrument.
Designed by Juan Carlos Melian, the Meinl Jingle Shaker has 2 pairs of steel jingles which are attached in one row to an octagonal aluminum shaker. Start off by playing the shaker with the jingles facing up. By tilting the shaker 90 degrees to the front, the rattles will start to click on the beat. And by simply tilting the shaker 90 degrees back, the jingles will start to click off the beat. This gives one the ability to completely change the feel of a song instantly by a simple twist of the wrist.
