The Bossa Nova Caxixi have classic Brazilian-style reed construction with room for two fingers to fit through the handle if played with berimbau. The coconut bottom gives authentic sound and more projection than a gourd bottom. Great shakers to have in any collection - so good you'll need two to play Airto or Nana Vasconcelos grooves. Measures approximately 7" long and 3" deep/wide. Sold individually.
