Product Overview

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 marketplace 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 in West Africa **** AUTHENTICITY NOTE: World Percussion USA is the only authorized reseller of this Africa Heartwood Project rainstick.

    Chilean Rain Stick

    Having Searched for a rain stick that would be made by and support local Artisans, be Environmentally aware, and offer soothing rain like sounds. Have used it once in a sound offering and am pleased with it. Thank you!

    With a little practice, you get awesome rain sound from this rain stick. I tried quite a few and the more costly ones as well. Consistent, long, sound of droplets when angled and rotated. Also makes a wonderful Rattle when half-run and shaken sideways. Great for shamanic journeying and shifting energy. I am super pleased.

    Very well made, better than expected, when held at an angle and rotated the sound lasts for a fair amount of time, glad that they finally came available!

    I am not a professional musician. I bought this rainstick for the sound and the tactile element as a sort of combination meditation aid/fidget toy, and it's exactly What I was looking for. Varying the angle and rotation speed produces a range of sounds from distinct "raindrops" to a steady rushing sound (as shown in the demo video). (Btw, what's up with the auto-capitalization? it's really distracting :P)
