specifally designed handmade walnut multi-timbral shaker
for N. Scott Robinson by Siasos Drums. The Shaker 6 is
made from thin pieces of Greek walnut with each of the
6 sides a different thickness. Each Shaker 6 is filled
with metal shot with no 2 instruments sounding the same.
The Shaker 6 produces a multitude of timbres depending
on which of the 6 sides faces forward while playing. Other
timbres can be produced by holding the Shaker 6 at an
angle so the shot strikes 2 surfaces. Closing the hand
around the Shaker 6 while playing will yield muted timbres.
Rotating the Shaker 6 while playing is another technique
that will vary the timbres.
