Product Information

What's included

Just shake it. Try one in each hand for a challenge. If you shake it from end to end, it will make a different sound from if you shake it from side to side. If you want to get it really in time hold the Egg Shaker loosely in your fist and use the natural movement of your elbow joint to get a more regular shake happening. This will produce a more in time shake than with your wrist movement.

In fact, Egg Shakers can be played in a number of ways: for the loudest sound hold lightly in the fingertips and shake; for a more subdued sound, hold firmly in the palm of the hand. You can also knock two Egg Shakers together to produce a percussive effect. Hold an Egg Shaker with its narrow end in the palm of each hand and knock the wider ends together, cupping the hands together as you do so. The more you cup your hands, the lower the knocking sound produced.

You may find it possible to develop a more controlled shake if you focus on recoiling the Egg Shaker at the apex of the shake so that you are in control of when the beads inside hit the inner shell. This means pulling your shake a few milliseconds early, but is definitely a technique worth mastering and can be applied to other shaken instruments also.

Thanks so much, the order arrived very promptly and it’s great! Lovely instruments.
I also really appreciated the recycled packaging. Ithink a lot of companies wouldn’t have the confidence to do that and I like it so much that you did – a real commitment to reducing packaging and waste.

Joanna Moon

The instruments were as usual beautiful and a pleasure to receive. Top, personal service from the ever helpful Hilary.

Alex Clark

All was great, thank you. We were particularly happy with the painted frog scrapers so thank you for agreeing to hold the rest for us.
