The two devices illustrated here, which are part of many trap
drummers' equipment, can be easily made and can be used to
keep time with the music of your home-made band or of the
radio. One device is a set of sand blocks, which you rub to-
gether to make that shuffling effect you have heard so many
times in dance band music. The other is a tambourine with
bells, which you can shake and strike against your knee and
with vour fist.
The sand blocks are easy. They are two wooden blocks, each
6 inches long, 4 inches wide, and 2 inches deep, with sand-
paper glued to one side. Just rub the sandpaper sides together
and you will get the popular shuffling effect.
