An ingeniously simple and effective new rhythm instrument.
The MEINL Jingle Shaker (designed by Juan Carlos Melian) has two pairs of steel jingles which are attached in one row to an octagonal aluminum shaker. The effect and possibilities of this idea are enormous: Start off by playing the shaker with the jingles facing up. By tilting the shaker 90° to the front, the jingles will start to click on the beat. And by simply tilting the shaker 90° back, the jingles will start to click off the beat. This gives one the ability to completely change the feel of a song instantly by a simple twist of the wrist.

Comments about Meinl Aluminum Jingle Shaker:
This shaker was bought for my wife who is just switching to percussion so It's no surprise that it's a little heavy for her and will require a lot of practicing just to control it. But the combination of sounds is great, and in a pinch, she can also use it as a tambourine.
