These Sistrum-style shakers are crafted from used, cleaned horseshoes.
Sistrums are one of the oldest musical instruments, shaken during religious
ceremonies, invoking and signaling the presence of the divine. They are part of
our Witch Doctor collection as the traditional uses of shakers includes
clearing space of negative influences and entraining the human nervous system
into Altered/Shamanic States of Consciousness. You can hold one in each hand
(even very different sounding ones) to create syncopated patterns!

The horseshoe has long been a symbol of good fortune and protection against
evil. The blacksmith in many traditions has long been associated with magic due
to the primal and elemental nature of his craft; the 10th Century St. Dunstan
was a blacksmith and the story goes that the devil (who had cloven hooves, not
feet) appeared and demanded to be shoed. Dunstan seized the moment, and
fulfilled the devil's request, but intentionally used nails too long or too hot
or both, and would only remove the shoes if the devil vowed to never cross a
threshold protected by a horseshoe.

Different designs create different sounds:
The ones with little space left on the wire provide a very controlled, tight
the ones with more space louder and can be played to sound a bit more chaotic.

Different Materials create different sounds:
The Jingles tone is similar to a tambourine without a skin.
The bellydance Zils add a louder, deeper, drier note.
The bone discs soften the sound a tiny bit
The hollow beads are decorative but add a bit of hollowness.
The Clam Bells add a bright, loud rattling ring.
The Gunghroo bells add a more continuous sussurus of ringing.
Louder bells have more volume;
Smaller bells are higher pitched.
