The Agogo

Agogo bells are pairs of bells joined by a curved metal rod. They are shaped much longer than a regular cowbell and generally tuned in third.

The Agogo is played with a stick held in the right hand while the left hand hold the instrument and can also squeeze the two bells togheter producing a "chick" sound.

The sound can be controlled by the left hand by positioning the thumb and finger toward the mouth of the bells (open/close).

The stick can be made by metal or wood (I prefer wood).
