Good cabasa - but set up carefully
Good sound - but build quality leaves a bit to be desired. Perhaps I'm a little heavy handed, but I have had numerous issues with the screws loosening while playing, causing the ends to rotate and the beads to become disfigured. WHEN IT SAYS TO WAIT 24 HOURS AFTER SECURING TO A CAJON, IT MEANS IT. I didn't heed this with the first one of these I purchased, and the thing busted all apart. Frame came apart, Velcro wouldn't hold, beads all fell out. Tried fixing to little avail. Ordered a second one, and decided I was tired of the Velcro's inadequacy. Superglued the Velcro surfaces together, which compromises a bit of the isolated sound, but haven't had any problems since. Overall, it's Schlagwerk so you know you're getting a reasonable caliber instrument, but this one may need a bit of "souping up".
