Our instrument collection continues to grow with this newest addition: the Peep Shake! This cute shaker is made from ceramic, with copper pellets as the secret sauce to making the perfect swooshing and/or snapitty snap snap. With super thin, but hard bird “skin” for volume and timbre variability, it feels amazing in the hand. And you know what they say - A bird in the hand is better than two in the bush. Though we’re not sure how that applies to percussion instruments.
The Peep Shake will be available on our website later this April.
Fun fact: The modern ocarina was invented in 1853 by a 17 year old in Italy, who named it “ocarina” - meaning “little goose” in Italian :)

If any dragon was to have ocarinas as teeth, it’d be this guy.
