      OVERVIEW

      Shake your beadies!

      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.

                  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.

                  An essential piece of percussive equipment

                  By Weasel-vfPXe

                  from Northern Cambria, PA

                  Comments about LP234A Standard Wood Afuche/Cabasa:

                  I record virtually every kind of music, and I have used this in more recordings than any other piece of percussive equipment that I own. There are dozens of ways to play this, and just about any "feel" or flourish can be achieved by experimenting with it.
