Product Description
Our natural rainsticks are handcrafted in Chile and produce a mystical sound like rain trickling. After the plentiful Capado cactus plant lives about 6 decades it dies and dries out, and is then harvested, cleaned, and hollowed out by native artisans. The spines are pushed into the hard wood body, or small sticks are inserted, and many very small pebbles are sealed inside. The unique sound produced by turning the stick from end to end is mesmerizing to children and adults alike, and is still used in traditional rain ceremonies throughout South America today. * sturdy construction will stand up to use in the classroom, home, or band over time * much clearer sound than plastic or poorly made imitation rainsticks * twine dyed in bright Chilean color combinations wrapped around one or both ends of rainstick * sanded smooth so it is safe for use by young children (2+ years) SIZE OPTIONS: available in 10in, 15in, 20in, 30in, 40in, and 50in (see our other Amazon listings for World Percussion USA) * sanded smooth and coated with sealant for smooth finish and for easier cleaning * your purchase of this rainstick helps to support the humanitarian work of Africa Heartwood Project .org in West Africa **** AUTHENTICITY NOTE: World Percussion USA is the only authorized reseller of this Africa Heartwood Project rainstick.

    5I am very happy with my purchase
    By paddlennature
    The rain stick is exactly as pictured and described. Arrived quickly and packed well. I am very happy with my purchase. Those who say the rain stick sound doesn't last long enough should not turn the stick directly vertical. I also noticed that by putting the beads sort of in the middle and holding the stick in the middle and horizontally, you can make beautiful sounds by twisting your wrists back and forth in different rhythms.

    4not thrilled
    By Kindle Customer
    Would give it a five star rating but for a few things... first, way to much coating. Areas are white with the resin... and several of the nails that form the maze aren't fully sunk so they scratch when hand Moves. Also cord wrap looks like a child made it

    540" perfect size, qualtiy sound, authentic, works well!
    By Amazon Frequent Flyer
    Purchased a 40" Love this! One of the better rain sticks I have ever purchased. Good quality sound that lasts a long time when used properly. Love the coating to protect hands and make sure that everything stays in place. Is very authentic with no parts that I can see that are not natural (except perhaps the yarn) Only criticism is this, but maybe just a personal preference: Would have preferred natural colors on the yarn and not purple and fluorescent green.
