Shake, Rattle & Roll

By Andrew Lentz Published September 28, 2009

The new Martin Verdonk Signature Shakers and Tambourine from Tycoon lend hand-held accessories the dignity they deserve.

As a first-call conguero, the Netherlands-based Verdonk has performed and recorded with a wide range of Latin percussion stars and big-time pop acts. Having studied Afro Cuban and Caribbean music at the university level, Verdonk knows his Latin rhythms. The Easy-Shake and Swing-Shake shakers as well as the studio-style “Las Vegas” tambourines are infused with his accumulated wisdom.

With their handcrafted sturdy construction, the Easy-Shake and Swing-Shake shakers as well as the studio-style “Las Vegas” tambourines are a welcome addition to any percussion table whether you’re a seesion performer, touring pro, or just want to jam with friends. Their stylish yet subtle good looks will add class to any ensemble.
