Jim Greiner is highly respected as a percussion performer and educator. He has dedicated himself to promoting the physical, mental, and emotional benefits of playing percussion to people from all walks of life.

Jim's namesake shekere combines old- and new-world technology to create an original version of this popular West African instrument that's amazingly musical while being extremely player-friendly. It's designed to offer the traditional sound and feel of the relatively fragile gourd-based shekere, but with the durability of contemporary materials.

The shell of the Jim Greiner Signature Shekere is slightly smaller overall than that of LP's standard model. This improved size and shape was created by digitally matching an original organic gourd hand-selected by Jim, and then further tailoring all the dimensions for optimal feel, balance, projection, and warmth. The resulting design not only offers those sonic advantages, but also makes the Jim Greiner shekere easier to handle during performance.

The network of beads that covers the durable fiberglass shell is unlike that of any other shekere. Jim worked closely with LP's designers to create specially formulated plastic beads that help to replicate the bead-on-gourd sound of traditional shekeres. In addition, the cord material and even the weave of the netting itself have been specially chosen to achieve the most musical sound, playable feel, and attractive appearance.
