Kashaka Pro – Large (50mm):
Kashaka Pro – ‘Made to be played’
Kashaka Pro Large 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 robust enough to be used in educational settings, workshops, classrooms etc.
Kashaka Pro – Large are 50mm version of the Kashaka Pro. The material is slightly different to the standard model, but the sound & strength is of the same high quality. They are very strong, and, being larger they have a slightly deeper, mellower ‘clack’ sound and a drier shake sound.
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 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.
Sound: Very good balance between click & shake sounds. Each ball is filled with approx 200 (10g) tiny metal split beads, like tiny bells, giving a 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 kashaka techniques.
Feel: Very smooth, while not too slippery. 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: 50mm spherical balls suitable for large hands or anyone who prefers a larger Kashaka.
Weight: Approx 40g 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.
