|suitable for kids:||yes|

Beautiful agogo made of Brazil nut shells
Both different sized spherical Brazil nut shells are the sound body of the instrument. This type of agogo is especially popular amongst capoeiristas, because its sound is warm and goes beautifully with berimbaus and atabaques.
The indicated weight might slightly differ due to the natural materials used.
Customer reviews for "Agogo Castanha"(9)
The instrument is beautful, but it comes with big cracks. Worst of all: the sound of the 2 "bells" is almost the same, which doesn't make any sense at all.
thank you for your feedback, I'm so sorry to hear that you weren't happy with the product on this occasion. If you haven't already, please get in touch with Customer Services who can offer you your returns options.
At first I thought it was a bit too expensive, but this agogo has a really nice finish and a good grip. The sound is lovely, perfect for capoeira. Worth the investment.
schöner Klang, die Schnur , an der der Stock befestigt ist, ist leider einen Tick zu kurz.
It sounds bad and weighs more than the supposed 0.5 kg
dear customer, apologies for our late reply here. I see our customer care has been in touch right away to offer replacement and a return. Please note that the indicated weight for handmade instruments from natural materials are always approximate. In this particular case, raw nut shells are used and naturally cannot offer an industrial sound quality. Please feel free to give us a shout if you have any questions or concerns.
Chose this Agogo for its beautiful finish and very nice traditional // tribal sound..
The handle was a usp.. nicely rounded.. for long sessions it seemed more comfortable
