These little maraca rings are so much fun for so little cost. Maracas lend well to Spanish flavor sounds, but these are just at home with your traditional rock rhythms. They are particularly useful for solo players who are looking to accompany themselves. They are great for inspiring a new approach to playing and may be the thing to get you out of a rut. They would be a very welcome addition to the arsenal of players who employ the percussive guitar body tapping style popular in more recent times.
