Meinl Foot Tambourine

Yes, this thing works!   The Foot Tambourine from Meinl Percussion slips right onto your hoof and allows you to jingle along while your hands are otherwise occupied with a djembe, cowbell, or donut.

The four pairs of jingles produce a good volume and the overall construction seems pretty substantial--for a price of about 12 bucks!   I dig it.
