The design couldn't be simpler: Two small, hollow wooden balls containing shaker fill are connected by a short length of cord. What gives that design its intriguing potential is the variety of ways in which the Sympatika Shaker can be played, and the subtle musical nuances it can create.

The Sympatika can be played as two separate shakers simply by holding one of the balls in each hand (with the connecting cord slack). The soft fill material striking the thin shells of the balls creates a delicate shaker sound. A louder version of this sound can be achieved by putting both of the balls into one hand and shaking them together. Yet a third?and uniquely original?sound can be created by holding one of the balls and swinging the other ball around the hand at the end of the cord. This allows the two balls to strike together, adding a percussive "click" to the shaker rhythm.

The design of the Sympatika Shaker may be simple, but its construction quality is state-of-the-art. The lightweight but durable hardwood balls are finished in a high gloss that highlights the natural beauty of the wood. And they're connected by the same Alpine low-stretch cord used for Toca's rope-tension djembes.
