    I bough this for my son to play with, I didn’t even open the package because of the cancer warning. I wont want me or my son to touch a hazardous plastic material.Read more

    I read all these glowing rave reviews and thought these would be a novel percussion instrument. Once I got them I was not merely disappointed, but rather shocked. I don’t think they would wake a baby or disturb a churchmouse. Are people tripping or what? Fortunately, Amazon gave me a refund on these. They should be billed as “non-percussion” instruments to replace lullabies in children’s cribs. Snore!Read more

    The fact that you have 4 levels of effect is nice (soft – medium – loud – extremely loud) However, they don’t project the sound really well. They work well in the studio where I can put a mic right up close; but in a large room they get lost. I actually purchased a second pair so I can double up each of the four sound choices. You wouldn’t be wrong to buy these but adjust your expectations related to the sound and think about getting 2 packs of these.Read more

    I purchased these to work into my percussion regimen – what I didn’t anticipate was my 3 year old granddaughter’s delight at having something new to play with and make noise. I wound up ordering a second set. We both shake together now. Both sets were delivered ahead of schedule and well protected. I may “graduate” to bigger shakers in the future but for now, these are right in line with what I need. Easy to use, simple and yet loud enough to perform with.Read more

    I wanted some egg shakers, but wasn’t interested in buying anything from China. I also prefer to get my twins real instruments whenever possible. I realize toddlers aren’t the target market for these egg shakers, but my twins absolutely love them. They fit perfectly in their little hands, are durable, the sound is very satisfying, and there’s two for each of them. Plus, they are very affordable.Read more

    They are sized like any other shaker egg. The best feature is that there really ARE volume level differences in each of the 4 eggs, although the greatest volume variations occur by changing your grip, just like w/ any shaker egg. Still, there’s a noticeable difference between “soft” and “extra loud.” The absolute best shaker sound will always come from a well-made maraca, but for a fraction of the price, these really work. I think they would be suitable for studio recording. A percussionist could easily work 2 of these eggs in a single hand while whacking something else at the same time.Read more

    These 4 egg shakers came at a bargain price and are made by a reputible percussion company. I use them for minor percussion while listening to or playing music and plan to use them for studio and meditative reasons. They are all clearly labeled by sound level. They each carry a distinct tone so if you are using them all at the same time, you can pick their sound out individually. The red and black are the loud and extra loud eggs, and they have a tinny sound. For my personal preference I use and like the white and grey eggs the most. They have soft sounds (especially the white) and are much more soothing than rattling on the ears. It all depends on what sound you are going for. Holding the egg sideways and swishing it back and forth can create a much quieter sound from the louder eggs that can be more soothing that normally shaking them. The shape of the eggs makes them fairly versatile – there is so much more one can do with these shakers than you would believe. Remember that the sound depends on not just the product but how you hold and handle it! 🙂 I would recommend this to any musician for studio or jam session use. It would also be a nice addition to a drum circle and would add a nice touch to a minor percussion set or music teacher’s inventory. I would think it should also make for great meditative use, especially the white egg. This would also suffice as an amusing toy for a child of any age, and it seems safe for biting, throwing, stomping etc. as the shell is very durable. I would caution that its advertised use is specifically for percussion, though. The contents of the egg are no doubt harmful to children if they find a way out of the shell. Buy it, the price is a value and it makes for a fun addition to every day life.Read more

    These little eggs were such a pleasant surprise. For the price you get four differently sounding shakers that are versatile enough for most ensemble needs. I use them for recording but my 10month old loves them to bits so they’ve doubled up as a baby toy. Why not? Well-built and so far indestructible as my little one has proven. For the price, you can’t go wrong.Read more

    These eggs are superb quality. Although made of two halves, the plastic is thick enough and the join solid enough that I have no fear of them splitting, and I suspect they could take quite a lot of rough treatment. The medium, loud and very loud eggs are quite similar in the sound they make, just more harsh towards the very loud end. The soft shaker is completely different – probably filled with sand instead of what sounds like grit in the others. It makes a wonderful shhhhh sound that is very easy to control – my favourite by far, although maybe too quiet for playing with too many other instruments; it would be perfect for home/studio recording where you can control the levels. These eggs are great to have at jam sessions where there are people who don’t play and instrument – anyone can grab one of these and join in.Read more

    For the price, the ideal solution for anyone wanting to go subtly soft, medium or loud enough to cut through against other instruments. Also small and light enough to produce a range of rhythms.Read more

    Really good. They actually have “loud” and “soft” and “extra loud” etc written on them. So really easy to decide which one you want for the type of song you will be playing.Read more
