      A shaker that securely grips your drumstick.

      The RhythmTech Stickball Shaker is the first shaker designed to mount on a drumstick. It slides easily on and off your stick to give you the ability to play shaker grooves right on the kit. Slide it midway down the stick for hi-hat or snare accents, place it on the end of your stick for a percussive tip, or take the stick-mounted stickball and place it in your kick-side shoe for a heel-shaking good time.

      According to Billy Ward, a world-renowned jazz and studio musician, "The Stickball replaces all those egg-shakers you've tried to get to work in a studio environment. They just aren't loud enough and they're too high-pitched. It's better than a dozen eggs because it's darker sounding and the microphones love it."

      Cool percussive tool!

      By Charlie Korch

      Comments about RhythmTech Stickball Shaker:

      This shaker is unique, and worth checking out. It is a shaker, no more, no less..... but you can continue playing a ride or hi-hat while "shaking away".The drums do sound different when hitting them with a stick that has the shaker mounted to it, but I don't think this is what the shaker was meant for.It works best while playing alone (like a shaker/maraca) or on a set of hi-hats. That is where I noticed the least change in sound of either a cymbal or drum. It works okay on a ride cymbal too. I did not care for the dead thump I got out of my toms when using this shaker, so I only use it on songs that are very groove oriented, and in the pocket.Overall I am happy with mine, and I would buy it again in a heartbeat.

      BEST IN SHOW!

      By DrummerCafe

      from Nashville, TN

      Comments about RhythmTech Stickball Shaker:

      The Stickball Shaker is a simple and effective device, designed to allow the drummer/percussionist to play a shaker sound while simultaneously playing another percussion instrument with a drumstick.The added weight of having the Stickball on the drumstick will take some getting used to, but nothing that can't be overcome with a little practice. The feel and sound varies greatly depending on where you place the Stickball on the drumstick. Listening to the sounds being produced from the shaker is paramount to using the instrument effectively in a musical fashion.This well-made, extremely functional, and fun to play instrument will be a welcomed addition to any stickbag or percussion box. Check out my video review and full demonstration to see/hear the Stickball in action.

      WAY TOO HEAVY!

      By GearNut

      from Boston, MA

      Comments about RhythmTech Stickball Shaker:

      This product seems like a great idea but was not followed through with much thought. The downfall is in the weight. It's just way too heavy. Another complaint is that it is way to soft. When playing, even at soft volumes it is barely audible. It feel extremely awkward and if you hit a drum with it on it sounds TERRIBLE. Save your money and buy one of those Eggz and tape it to your stick it will sound better and be much more playable.
