I did a lot of research to find maracas for my husband that he could play in his band. There are a lot of maracas for children, and I had to filter through and find some that are meant for serious play by an adult. These are good and sturdy, comfortable to hold and loud enough to hear when he performs, even competing with screaming guitars, pounding bass and drums. I highly recommend these to musicians and anyone who wants high-quality maracas.

I bought these to add music to my daily commute with 2 year olds. A different set broke the first trip. These are solid construction, good quality and VERY, VERY loud…too loud for using in a closed car. But great for anywhere else. Would recommend them and I would purchase them again.

These are great quality maracas. However, be careful when you use them. A tiny shake goes a long way. They. can. be. LOUD! Lol but the whole idea is to get the sound out. I’ve been working with middle school singers for years and we’ve done different things in concert. Last concert, we used these for a fun piece. Just had to have the kids tap the maracas gently into a hand instead of shaking outright. It worked and didn’t power the small singing group (~8 students). So yes they can be noisy, but when carefully used can have a great sound range. I definitely feel that I got a good-quality product.

Holy cow, are these things loud. I’m a church music director (acoustic, not praise band). We thought we needed maracas/shakers for an anthem one Sunday. Good thing we also got some egg shakers, because that’s what we’re using. We decided that if we needed to, say, raid the Episcopalians down the street, we could intimidate them by shaking these maracas. They’re beautiful (seriously, so pretty that I’ve given them to my Mom to display on a shelf!), well made, precise- and clean-sounding…and did I mention they are very, very loud?

They are huge and loud. Good for a whole band ensemble to stand out.

These are as good as the LP’s and less expensive. Sometimes I replace the hi-hat with these guys – I cross the handles and fit both in one hand. Great for a 16th note feel, because you have a front and back cycle, easier than doing it on a hi-hat when the volume goes up – especially since I always have a vocal mic and it picks them up.I almost always use them on recordings. They definitely punctuate the feel.

I love Meinl products. They are expensive bout sound incredible and extremely durable. I bought these maracas to play around with while on my kit. I have a small practice room and the sound of the maracas bounce off the walls. They are loud! These are perfect for live venues (when we get back to that). I love you Meinl!!
I got these for my 1yo to play with. My line of thinking was: it’s not made in China, concert quality means better quality, and it costs about the same as a children’s rattle so why not get something fancy.What really happened: every time I shook one it was so loud she would flinch, and she had no interest in shaking them herself.These have some heft to them. I was a little surprised that my baby could even lift them, to be honest.9/10 still not a toy

We’ve all played maracas at some point in our lives… probably for a 3rd grade play.One should not give these particular maracas to a 3rd grader. They are insanely loud. You will regret your life choices. These maracas are not to be trifled with.

I set out to find the best valued maracas in the market. After looking at other leading brands I tried out these and found them to be excellent in both comfort and grip, as well as sound and quality. They are made of super durable wood handles and plastic bead head. They beads sound sharp and loud excellent acoustics to cut through other percussion in the band. Highly recommended.
