SHAKE is an electric percussion instrument. Could it be the world's first electric shaker? Maybe! Is it the world's first electric shaker disguised as a guitar pedal? We're just gonna assume so! After all, who else would do something so silly? That's right. We know this is silly, but it is a very real product, and it is made for having very real fun... to inspire you to get loose and experiment with your other pedals in a new way.
At the heart of SHAKE is a small wooden box full of component lead trimmings from the guitar pedals that we make. Reduce, reuse, recycle! The box is fitted with a small piezo transducer which essentially acts as a microphone to pick up the percussive sounds of the shaker--Because of the transducer, you can tap the enclosure to create pointed sounds, you can shake it, you can even sing into it!
SHAKE is perfect for loop artists, noise-makers, experimental musicians and anyone else who gets tired of stringed instruments from time to time. And hey, it makes a great stocking stuffer for that weirdo musician in your life. ;)
The SHAKE is a passive instrument, meaning it does not require a power source. Therefore, we recommend plugging it first into some sort of pre-amp or overdrive pedal to bring the level up and too thicken and shape the sound. That said, SHAKE is intended to be plugged into lots of pedals and not used by itself, so get creative!
