Product Description

LP's Pro Maracas are the most imitated maracas around. Offered in matched pairs of one high pitch and one low pitch, this variation in pitch is the way maracas were historically designed to produce the classic maraca sound. Traditionally a Latin instrument, these maracas are used in all styles of music to cut through live performances. They offer bright, loud sound with vibrant yellow, plastic shells and wood handles.

I tried these out with the band I play with and they are definitely loud. I play with an 18 piece big band and these came through on one of the latin tunes we play. I'm glad these sound louder than other maracas I have since the sound has to come through especially with a group that size. These baby's are well constructed and well balanced. They just take a little getting used to to arrive at the right sound and rhythm you want but, definitely worth it.
If you're a percussionist, these are good to have.

These pro maracas are built extremely well. They will last a lifetime. There's only one little problem. They're TOO LOUD!!! I purchased them for indoor use with an 18-piece jazz band. These maracas were so loud, I couldn't hear the drummer, and the other musicians couldn't hear each other. You're likely thinking "Play Softer!" Can't be done. The size of these maracas requires extra effort to move the seeds from one side to the other. The noise can only go from loud to louder. The only possible uses for these maracas are for outdoor gigs, evicting evil spirits, and knocking out intruders. I suppose they would be okay for those things. These are my opinions.

These maracas sound great. They are very light weight and easy to hold both of them in one hand as desired. The sound is bright and bold. They really cut through the sound. You may actually have to watch you don't shake them to hard as they do project. They're alss very well made, so should produce years of enjoyment. I highly recommend these maracas.

These things are every thing they say they are and more. They are VERY VERY loud!! I got them for the grand kids to play along with their favorite songs, but I think they would fit in better with the Boston Philharmonic! I will not return them because one of the reviewers said they were loud,but I'll probably order a different set (made out of wood instead of plastic) that is a little more sedate.

These are high quality Maracas and you will not be sorry you purchased them. I play these in church and they have a high sound and are very easy to control. They are professionally made and I do recommend these to other buyers. The color concerned me before I purchased them because it reminded me of a baseball. Nevertheless they are durable and that is what mattered. Thank you for a great product.

I am a musician. I use these for unplugged concerts where I need the shaker to cut through. They are loud and do just that. This is done by keeping the beads large, but this reduces the number in each maraca and changes the quality of the tone. Very course. Difficult to get a variety of sounds out of them. But they are perfect for things like drum circles.

Also seems to have a different number of beads in each one, so one is high and one is low. This is subtle, of course.

Worked great , the shipment and price was just super..great value !!! different strokes for different folks, this Maracas worked well for the purpose i needed it for..no complaints or technicality encountered on my end....I just needed a "Maracas" sound to add live percussion to my songs , its really how you play it that matters not necessarily a bunch of technical analysis of this instrument ,,,
