This is a wonderful shaker. I searched many music stores before I found one that I really liked. An egg was not enough and metal shakers were too harsh. I originally bought the Meinl studio (red) shaker which has a lighter sound, but it gets lost when amplified instruments and a PA system are being used. This shaker is just right. You can also get a variety of shake types depending on how you tilt it. Great price for a quality shaker.

I would not buy this again, because the sound was too light

It is well made, but the shaker sound is too light.

    Comments about Meinl Luis Conte Double Live Shaker:

    I also have the Red and Silver models, the Red is almost too soft unless micc'd or used in a very small setting. The Silver is almost too loud for the Church praise band / orchestra or the CMA praise team where I play. The black works for just about every setting you can imagine whether it's on a mic on not. Extreme flexibility is it's greatest asset, you can go from pp to ff with this one shaker. This is one you won't be disappointed in!

    Comments about Meinl Luis Conte Double Live Shaker:

    I needed something that would project just enough in our 3 piece jazz band (drums, sax, bass) The LC dual black shaker is just the ticket without being overbearing or too coarse. Seems very well built.

      Comments about Meinl Luis Conte Double Live Shaker:

      Very pleased with controllability, is versatile in ranges, eg can be crisp clicks, or can present more like gravel. I use under a mic in a fairly large room. Timbre is lighter/higher than a cylinder style shaker, but its manageability is superb.

        Comments about Meinl Luis Conte Double Live Shaker:

        These shakers are excellent. Their shape allows you to produce long or short sound. It also allows you to control the dynamics, loud to soft with the same rythm. They thought through and designed them with a great balance of overall mass to particle size and mass to achive this. Higly recommended!

            Comments about Meinl Luis Conte Double Live Shaker:

            I use this shaker specifically with my Meinl Cajon. It actually lives inside the drum so that I take it anywhere the cajon goes. The addition produces a full drum set sound and feel. This is based on audience feedback and not just my own opinion. I have played probably 30 shows using this and it is fantastic.

              The double live shaker is light weight. Actually lighter than I thought it would be which is good because it is not laborious to play at all. The shaker will go good with our piano, acoustic guitar and bass we play with now. Our drummer friends will love it.

                          I was looking for a good Shaker for a reasonable price, so when I got this one I was satisfied. It sounds great and it's very responsive. I showed it to my partners in the band and to other musicians and they liked how it sounded. The plastic is really hard and can handle hard falls easily. The only thing is that I thought it would be a little bit louder since it's the live version. It's no a huge deal because when not a lot of instruments are playing it can be heard but when more instruments and vocals start sounding the sound doesn't travel very ​far. That can be fixed with a microphone or getting the stadium version. And with the microphone it sounds really good none of the sound gets lost.
