Designed in collaboration with LP artist, Jim Greiner, this fiberglass shekere combines old- and new-world technology to create an original version of this popular West African instrument. It's designed to offer the traditional sound and feel of the relatively fragile gourd-based shekere, but with the durability and consistency of contemporary materials.
The shell of the Jim Greiner Shekere is slightly smaller overall than that of LP's standard model. This improved size and shape was created by digitally matching an original organic gourd hand-selected by Jim, and then further tailoring all the dimensions for optimal feel, balance, projection, and sound. Jim also worked with LP's designers to create unbreakable plastic beads that replicate the traditional bead-on-gourd sound.
A durable fiberglass shekre co-designed by LP Artist, Jim Greiner.

Comments about LP Jim Greiner Pro Shekere:
After being disappointed with the Toca Fiberglass Shekere I went to this one. This shekere has a great shape to it with great tone. I mean it isn't a natural gourd, but you can't beat super durable fiberglass. This thing is loud like all other glass gourds, but still sounds great and can be sensitive when played. It matches my fiberglass Toca guiro really well too which is a plus. I prefer this smaller sized shekere to the bigger one LP makes since it is easier to handle. You can't go wrong buying this LP product. "Trust The Leader"
