    These things are loud (audio and visual) and that is a great attribute concerning the maracas. They cut right through the mix with that classic sound and rhythm, which adds that spice to the cha-cha beat. They're perfect for live applications. The wooden handles are countoured to fit your hand comfortably. Even holding 2 in 1 hand feels pretty good while I play the snare and bass drum. The plastic has a brash tone than wood, but then again, it cuts right through. High Marks to LP!!

    If You Need Them Loud

    My band hated them. No subtlety to the sound. I thought our band was loud enough to need this much sound, but apparently not.

      Comments about LP Pro Maracas:

      I really liked these Latin Pro Marachas. They give off a good loud rattle and I also use the wooden handles as claves. They are durable and should last forever. One voodoo trick I use is to pinch a small bell between my fingers while I am shaking the marachas which adds a nice ting.

        Bought these for my son, the street musician. He and his associates were very impressed with the volume and tone. I like that they're yellow, which makes them easier to find in a messy room.

        instrument of doom

        By Anonymous

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about LP Pro Maracas:

        this thing rocks and it sounds so good! I play death metal and hiphop, and this thing suits my genre, the only thing is, it is made of wood that is extremely feasible to termites! Perhaps, gives pleasure to their gluttony.

        Use one instead of a stick

        Comments about LP Pro Maracas:

        These are fantastic if you can keep a rhythm with your timekeeping hand while drumming. Just replace the stick with the maraca and you've got a shaker going while you play your regular beat. Terrific addition to a unique rhythmic beat.

              Comments about LP Pro Maracas:

              I used them right away for recording a drum track, held them in my right hand as a substitute for the ride cymbal. Exactly right sound for mix.
              As has been said many times, they are loud as they should be for stage.
              Very sturdy for professional bands, the olden gourd types are flimsy.
              You might spray paint them if you like, for stage performance, I would.

                  I purchased these same LP Maracas over 35 years ago and they lasted all this time. I was pleasantly surprised at the great price when I finally needed a new pair.
