Based on the Xequebalde, a Brazilian folk instrument, the new Gon Bops Bucket Shekere (PSHEKBK) is the first of its kind to be manufactured outside of Brazil.

Quite literally a hybrid of a metal bucket and a shekere, the Bucket Shekere can be played in hand like a traditional shekere, or placed on a stand — a snare stand works perfectly — and played with brushes.

Gon Bops Bucket Shekere Will Phillips PSHEKBK

The Bucket Shekere is also the first Will Phillips signature instrument for Gon Bops. Captivated by Brazilian music, Will spent time studying and performing in Brazil, and was greatly inspired by the rich musical heritage he found there.

One instrument that captured his attention was the Xequebalde, an instrument that varied in style as much as the players who made them. Will’s design reflects his own fresh interpretation of this uniquely Brazilian instrument.

The Gon Bops Bucket Shekere is designed primarily to be super light, for long-playing comfort and provides a rich, warm percussive attack. It’s crafted from lightweight aluminum, and its shell stands 8″ in height with a 12.5″ opening.
