Default Foot-operated cabasa

For the last year I've been fantasising about a cabasa which you could operate with your foot. Apparently, Meinl was a few steps in front of me; check this out! I want to get my hands (or feet actually) on one of those!

Yeah I saw this the other day. I may be in a situation to use a Cajon and one of these would be great with it.

Whoa! I gotta get me one of those. I made a foot-operated guiro once but this sounds much better. I wonder how it works - maybe I could make my own.

Meinl is a very underrated company. They are consistently coming out with innovative stuff. I have one of their kokirikos, a fiberglass berimbau, a cricket and some other stuff I don't recall now.

I have successfully attached my cabasa to one of my percussion pedals. I'll put some photos up soon. I don't have the curved cradle and I may not need one - it would be like $30 to order and the pedal sounds fine without a cradle as the inertia of the chains overcomes the resistance and lends a nice sound. It's not too loud, however. But I can still use the pedal to hit the wood block, or remove the beater for cabasa-only.

If Meinl had thought this through a bit more, they could have offered a pedal that would allow beater-struck percussion and cabasa and you could switch between the two.

Hi

If you have som pictures of the foot cabasa you've made, I'll be happy to see them. I'm planning on making one myself.

Thanks!
