Default Zulu cocoon rattles

I know that a lot of drummers on here have some sort of tambourine on their hi hat stand to add something extra. I have seen these rattles attached to a lot of dancers legs. I was wondering if anyone has any experience with them. I could attach it to the hi hat or lay it across a cymbal, or just plainly attach it to my ankle...? Thanks

I use foot rattles when I play either my cajon or frame drums. They really add a nice texture to the rhythm. I have one similar to yours that I bought from an African music store. There are others available (see images below):

Take care

p.s. I hope you are enjoying your cajon these days!

Thanks, the one problem I had with getting these is their low pitch, they mightn't be suitable for a lot of styles. I do like the ankle bells ones though and they seem like they'd work a lot of the time. Thanks, I might just end up getting both!

The cajon will be in my grasp within the week! I've gotten to used to using eastern fingering techniques on boxes so I'll be ready when it arrives! :)
