Shakers

Pearl offers an ever expanding line of shakers to add flavor and color to any genre of music.

Shekeres

The shekere is a West African percussion instrument consisting of a dried gourd with a woven netting of beads covering the gourd. The instrument is commonly used in West African and Latin American music and can also be heard in many popular forms of music. Pearl offers both natural gourd and synthetic shekeres in a variety of sizes. The instrument is played by slapping the bottom of the gourd and by shaking and twisting the netting in rhythmic patterns. The adjustable netting can the tightened for a quick response or loosened for a sloppy feel.

Designed in conjunction with master percussionist Bart Fermie, Pearl Shakerines and Ganzeiros offer three sounds in one handheld instrument: A shaker, caxixi, and tambourine. Combine one in each hand for a complete percussion ensemble effect never thought possible by just one player.
