Whole Lotta Shaking Goin’ On

By Andrew Lentz Published November 3, 2009

From the imagination of Meinl in-house desihgner Bill Saragossa comes the Clam Shell Spark shakers – a world of sound that fits right in your hand.

The two steel halves finished with black nickel are held together like a hinge by a single solid weld. The sparkling, chirping, splashing tones of the new Clamshell Spark Shakers readily mix with any musical flavour.

Their pod-like shape fits easily into the hand and when squeezed together, a widely variable pitch response can be achieved.

The Meinl Clamshell Spark Shakers come in two pitches for a high-low combination and can be played in combination with other shakers for even more variations. Set of two, $54.
