The word shaker describes a large number of percussive musical instruments used for creating rhythm in music. They are so called because the method of creating sound involves shaking them—moving them back and forth rather than striking them. Most may also be struck for a greater accent on certain beats. Shakers are often used in rock and popular styles to provide the ride pattern along with or substituting for the ride cymbal.
