The LP Afuche'/Cabasa, Martin Cohen's second patented invention, was developed nearly thirty years ago. It has since become the most popular hand percussion instrument ever created!

  • Wooden flanges enclose the cylinder and a wooden handle is attached to the bottom
  • Mini model features plastic flanges and handle
  • Larger models produce louder, fuller sounds while the smaller models provide more control and softer volumes
  • Designed to create rhythmic scraping sounds and patterns
  • Beads can be rotated around the textured steel or the instrument can be spun or shaken for varying sounds
