The LP Afuche®/Cabasa was developed nearly thirty years ago. It has since become the most popular hand percussion instrument ever created!
This ingenious instrument is constructed using endless loops of steel bead chain wrapped around a specially textured stainless steel cylinder. Wooden flanges enclose the cylinder and a wooden handle is attached to the bottom.
The LP Afuche®/Cabasa was designed to create rhythmic scraping sounds and patterns. The beads can be manipulated against the textured steel or the instrument can be spun or shaken for varying sounds, the likes of which can be heard in music all over the world. The larger models produce louder, fuller sounds while the smaller models provide more control and softer volumes. This instrument should be included in every percussionist's arsenal.
