First it was cowbells, then blocks, then tambourines. Now LP’s Fusheki lets drummers and percussionists play the soft shaker sound of a maraca with their feet. When attached to an LP388N Gajate Foot Pedal Bracket or LP388M Multi Stem Bracket the cleverly designed Fusheki allows the mountable maraca to be played using a standard bass drum pedal. The sound is created on the forward and backward strokes. The black plastic maraca body is threaded to a metal base that includes a beater shaft for insertion into the bass drum pedal. By unscrewing the body from this base, the player can change the fill material within the maraca in order to produce different sounds. The assembly in which the maraca moves features specially engineered bumpers to eliminate audible shell impact—thus producing only the maraca sound. It’s also adjustable in length to establish an even distance between front and rear strikes. Whether you’re seated behind a drumkit or atop a cajon, the LP Fusheki will help you add a subtle percussive nuance to your playing. So step on it, and start things shaking.
