This shaker has two chambers which are separated by a plastic membrane (red). By covering and uncovering the sound hole, a "wah-wah" effect can be achieved by the motion and/or stroke of it. This shaker is capable of making all sorts of sounds (covering the hole, holding it upright or on its side etc). To be honest this is a very clever design and you can get a lot of unusual sounds out of it but its not made to be played with loud music or without mics. In a nutshell this shaker is good for a studio recording setting but probably not for a live situation. To me this is a great addition to my percussion toys arsenal, but I tend to use it more as an effect toy than as a shaker.
