Welcome!

"Shake and Rattle Percussion" is the work of Atlanta-area conga player, percussionist and drummer Thomas Hood.  I have been making my own percussion instruments over 30 years. I have been making custom shekeres over 10 years.
I am constantly refining my techniques and adding new instruments.

I make shekeres, guiros, shakers, cajons, gourd drums and Ashikos.
