Subject: Spanish percussion instrument??

From another site I use: -

"I'd love a go on some castanets right now and would love to shake some maracas..

Whilst your here I don't suppose you could tell me the name of that other Spanish percussion instrument which is hand held but with both hands, it's like a large lollipop with a bead at the end of a string attached to both sides of it .."

I have to admmit I'm baffled.

Any ideas?

Do you mean the dinky wee drums on a stick that has a bead on a string (one attached either side on the rim) that you play by twiddling the stick - beads then flap on ends of strings and 'beat' the wee drum?

Them wee drums..? I've no idea what they're called, but I've seen them used in europe and right through to the far east. I had no idea they were particularly associated with Spain.

Beggar's drum. Indian more than anything else.

Ray Man used to sell them as Monkey Drums, or pellet drums, beautiful little talking drums held in each hand, altering the tensions as you shook them.

Is Ray Man still there? (Quick Google search) Yes he is - check Here; doesn't look quite the Aladdin's cave it was back in the early 1980s when it supplied exotic hardware to the entire UK free improvisation & experimental fraternity; I still have gongs & drums I bought 27 years ago... But still worth a look I shouldn't wonder...

I was last in Ray Man's about ten years ago. He obviously knew what he was doing with Far Eastern stuff, but trying to cover the Middle East as well was a mistake.

I was last there in 1999 struck me the prices had risen rather since my last visit some 12 years or so earlier when I got my favourite little F bamboo whistle. 1999? Methinks a London jaunt is long overdue.

Hmm. The description doesn't sound like a cajon. That looks more like a packing crate with a cushion on top. You sit on it and bash it with both hands:

Cajon.

Hey, does anyone know what this instrument is called: Its about 4 inches long, wood. Got a main body with a stick sticking out - kind of guitar shaped actually! You drum your fingers on the stick bit to make a sound. I bought a couple at St. Chartier festival years ago, I was told it's a Spanish instrument called Carascla, but I can't find it on the net.

@ Guest rutilachs: I think it's "carrascal" (not carascla) from The Canary Islands (In "De Chácaras y familiares", end of the 3rd §, "o el carrascal, caña gruesa que suena al ser frotada con otra caña mas fina." -no photo

another Spanish percussion instrument is the Caña which is a length of bamboo which is split more than half way down and carved a little so that when you strike it against your hand right before the split begins, it opens and snaps back together to make a sound very similar to castanets.
