      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.

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

              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.

                      Even though it works great in a small setting, I am sure that this shaker has the power to fill a large room without being overbearing. I love the design; you can play it all the way to ppp. It's great for a fading-out section.
