  • Item Details

    These maracas are truly custom-made. The type of wood used in the handles and their shape may vary from the displayed image.

    Joropo Maracas are incredibly hard to find in the United States, and they're really something special. Hand crafted in Fort Worth, TX, these maracas are modeled after the design found in the plains of Venezuela, specifically meant to accompany the Joropo musical style.

    The head is round, not ovaloid like standard salsa maracas, and the handle actually travels completely though the head and sticks out the top, changing the balance and feel dramatically - hence the 'Palo Cruzado' or 'Cross Stick' name. The result is an incredibly crisp 'chick' sound with every stroke, and when held correctly and played with correct technique, the result is truly unbelievable. Additional techniques can create an entire toolbox of sounds at your disposal.

    Each maraca is filled with imported Canna Indica seeds (capachos) prized for their bouncy quality, and the handles are all lathed by hand. The waxed sinew on top allows you to remove the gourd and fill it with whatever you want!

    Along with the maracas and a protective case, you'll also receive a DVD that provides visual aid.

    This pair of maracas is constructed with a special acrylic that makes them nearly unbreakable and quite a bit brighter than the natural gourd model - perfect for ensemble work and for school studios. Tiny holes have been drilled the bottom to allow Canna Indica seed dust to escape.
