Kashaka Pro  – ‘Made to be played’

Kashaka Pro have been developed to create a Kashaka with the level of quality & durability that would be expected of a professional percussion instrument, while also being affordable for the casual player and for beginners. They are also strong enough to be used in educational settings, workshops, classrooms etc.

The completely spherical high density plastic balls, all with equal sizes, shapes and equally balanced filling helps with the ability to control and to play more advanced kashaka skills. This balance of size, shape and weight also helps with very consistent playing, timing & dynamics – very smooth shaker sounds & clear balanced clicks. The balls have a ‘silk’ surface finish so they glide smoothly through the hands.

The high quality plastic balls are manufactured in UK & the Kashaka are assembled in UK.

Strength: ‘Made to be Played’ – Kashaka Pro are very strong and will not break during use or if you drop them while playing, nor will they get crushed in your pocket or bag etc. With normal use they should last for many years of kashaka playing.

Sound: Very good balance between click & shake sounds. Each ball is filled with 150 tiny metal split beads, like tiny bells, giving a bright, resonant and very smooth shake sound. The small metal beads give very good action & control when played as regular shakers, while also having great balance & momentum when played with advanced kashaka techniques.

Feel: Very smooth, while not too slippery (silk finish, not gloss). The slight texture on the surface is very fine, like the texture of fingerprints, giving a good ‘grip to slip’ ratio, allowing for very good handling and control for playing advanced skills and moves.

Size: 45mm spherical balls suitable for most hand sizes.

Weight: Approx 32g per Kashaka (2 balls/1 hand).

Rope: The multi plaited rope is comfortable in the hand and is very strong. Heat sealed ends to prevent fraying. Adjustable for all hand sizes.

Colour: Clear & White versions are both of the same quality, strength & balance. The Clear have a slightly drier shake sound & lower, mellower clack sound, the White have a slightly brighter shake sound & higher, sharper clack sound. Over time & with lots of use, a slight silver discolouration occurs inside the balls caused by the metal bead filling. This is normal & does not affect the sound or playing of the Kashaka in any way.

Supplied with natural cotton Kashaka pouch with kashaka logo.

Kashaka Pro Reviews:

“Kashaka received and appear very attractive……………..nice and light and a bright shaker sound”. “Kashaka Pro – these are a bit smaller than I am used to playing but it doesn’t make a difference really, the shaking sound is really clear and quite loud and the balls themselves seem very durable, the strings are a good length and are fully adjustable too, I would recommend buying these to anyone.” “Just received them, thank you. They’re really good… time to find some practice time…” “Well. What a tricky and addictive little instrument. I see myself picking up some more.” “Yesterday afternoon I got my Kashaka Pro! It’s great, I like it a lot, I’m looking at the weight and I like it a lot more than the kashakas that I have, I can do tricks I can not do with mine! I love the detail of the bag and the ropes are better.” “I am enjoying playing with them Thanks” “I’m really amazed with kashaka pro, at first I had to get used to it, the balls are smaller than the ones I use but here my surprise being a couple of hours playing, the balls cling perfectly to the hand, the sound clack every time was more intense in my head, I had a feeling of playing African kashaka, the weight of the balls is perfect. With African kashaka sometimes the difference in size and weight between them is a problem for me for depends on what tricks but with pro this does not happen and I have the feeling of being advancing much faster than with the African. I’m very happy!!!!” “A few days ago I received kashaka pro, and waited a few days to be able to evaluate the product, I had to try it well since I am accustomed to playing African kashaka and bigger, at first it cost me a little getting used to it but in a few hours I already had it! ! I have been playing kashakas, african, plastic but with the pro me it has been a pleasant surprise, the plastic is hard and velvety, does not slip the grip is very good, the balance of weights is great. I perform tricks that with the Africans cost me since the weight and size are ideal. I recommend 100% your purchase you will not regret !!! I also made an order for kashaka cork, perfect for practice and do not disturb, I’m waiting for them to arrive !!!! I also wanted to comment on the seller, and dealt with many, and bought many kashakas but most just want to sell, the deal with this seller is different, you notice he likes what he does and that is reflected in the deal, he solved all the doubts which I had with pleasure and thank you for a 10 !!!!!” Click here for More Kashaka videos.

    Kashaka Pro – these are a bit smaller than I am used to playing but it doesn’t make a difference really, the shaking sound is really clear and quite loud and the balls themselves seem very durable, the strings are a good length and are fully adjustable too, I would recommend buying these to anyone.

    The Kashaka Pro / Pro Large provides a high pitched shake-sound and a nice thud when clacking together. Works well using as just an ordinary shaker. Also, i’ve lost count of how many times I’ve accidentally thrown them through the room/down on the ground, and not a single crack.

    I started out playing the real gourds. I got nervous because they break easily and I have animals. I was worried if the gourd broke the seeds would scatter across my apartment. I some how came across this website and purchased the pro set. I am very pleased with this purchase. They sound great. You can adjust the strings. The size of these are better for smaller hands. They feel great in your hands. I was a little worried at first because they were a little lighter but I adjusted quickly to them. They are very durable, I’m learning and I’ve dropped them many times. Don’t hesitate to buy these you won’t be sorry. The nice storage bag was a bonus.

    I could not be more pleased with my order. The seller has been very responsive and extremely helpful in working with me to to purchase a few sets. I had been searching for close to a year for a resource for high-quality, durable, and good sounding Kashaka’s. I purchased the Pro, Pro-clear, Large, and Cork and the quality is consistent in each. The rope is not just a good quality but also easily adjustable, as some ropes I’ve experimented with when trying to make my own home-made sets are either difficult to loosen the knots at the ends, or they keep becoming loose while playing. The sounds of each set (except the cork) is bright, but not obnoxious, and these really are as described on the website. The cork set I was concerned about having read reviews (elsewhere, and for other manufacturer) that they quickly start to breakdown and crumble apart. In discussing this concern with the seller, he provided his own feedback having been playing his personal cork set for the past 2 years and has not had any problems. In the communications with the seller, I felt assured he is not saying whatever I want to hear in order to make a purchase, it is obvious he cares about his product and provides honest information and feedback. I would and will highly recommend these assorted ‘Pro’ versions of Kashakas from the producer/seller here. And now that I finally have good quality sets to work with, I can truly begin my practices and start making some progress.
    Ps- there’s a link on one of these pages to a collection of videos which is a fantastic resource to anyone learning or wanting to improve their playing. I’ve found some of these videos on my own searches, but the ones here that I’ve never found before show some really talented performers from all over the world, lots of different styles and maneuvers I would not have otherwise imagined possible.

    Durable and good sound .. perfect asalatos to start

  11. Ivan Bashkirov (verified owner)

    Unlike the wooden asalatos that cracked recently, these ones seem very durable and much more balanced, i.e. there is no difference in weight/size between the balls. I am a beginner but it was immediately much nicer to play, and the sound is nice too, not what I expected from plastic.

    Finally I found the owner to be very helpful. Keep up the good work!

    Thanks
