These shakers were designed according to master percussionist Luis Conte’s exact requirements. “My shaker sound is as smooth as silk” is how Luis describes them. The red shaker is the softest compared to the black and grey versions. It delivers ultra-smooth percussive colors that can blend well and cut at the same time, responding beautifully at any volume level. A little quieter than the other Luis Conte shakers, it is excellent for studio use and is great for soft acoustic performaces as well. Any drummer or percussionist will find this instrument extremely useful in their music. Whether playing a mic'd set or a softer unplugged gig with a cajon, the Luis Conte red shaker sets the standard for a silky smooth sound. Pair with the black and grey models to complete the trio!
