Hey, I was looking to pick up some good quality maracas to have around, and I was wondering if anyone knew of any particular brands or models or anything. No, they don't all sound the same.


While I'm at it, anyone also know of any good bongo or conga makers?

Thanks,
Ketchup

TS, whenever I see your username, I misread it as "isuckhardcocks."

Just had to get that out there.

Latin Percussion makes good stuff.

Just for future reference, I found the Latin Percussion Professional Maracas for $18.99 a pair, thinking that was too cheap, but then I realized they were the same ones I saw in a picture of the gear at a Mars Volta show, so I'm assuming they're quality. For future reference.

well if you want a shaker i say go with lp. i hate their maracas. do you need a harsher sound or something a bit smoother?

EDIT: sorry im thinking of ludwig maracas. yeah LPs are good. perhaps try the rhythm tech ones? i always love their stuff.

I'm gonna buy a bongo drum soon, too. But I don't have a clue about them.

Yeah, I got those LP ones I posted above. Their loud, but they sound nice and thick. You need to have some other instrument with it to balance out the sound a little more so than other shaker-type-things I've heard, but that's fine.

And bongos/congas?
