Developed and introduced by LP over 40 years ago, the Afuche®/Cabasa has become one of the most essential percussion instruments in history. Loops of steel bead are wrapped around a textured cylinder to produce a variety of scraping rhythmic patterns. Available in multiple sizes, the larger versions produce greater volume.

For over half a century, LP has crafted classic percussion instruments as well as patented hundreds of improvements and new designs for musical instruments that meet the exacting standards of professional musicians. Latin Percussion instruments have been featured in thousands of the world’s most famous, chart-topping recordings – from classic salsa – to classic rock. In fact, LP is such an essential part of so many musical genres, it’s nearly impossible to turn on a radio or listen to a playlist and not hear an LP instrument.
