I always wanted one of these little egg-shakers, they're so cute! When I spotted them behind the counter at a local music store for just $2.50, I had to get one.
This Toca shaker is in the shape of an egg, and small enough to fit in one hand. It shakes nicely on its own, but where it really shines is when held in your hand as you strum a guitar. If you're lucky, it will shake along with the song you're playing, and adds a bit of dimension to things. Doesn't fit in with every song, but it will add something nice to some. The egg itself is made of firm plastic and features the Toca logo. The seam where thw two egg halves meet is solid and very tightly sealed. I don't suspect that it will open up any time soon. The bits inside are tiny and produce a nice, high-pitched shake sound.
This is almost more af an accessory than an instrument in itself. It is, however, a nice addition to any guitarist's repertoire.
