The vibraslap is a percussion instrument consisting of a piece of stiff wire (bent in a U shape) connecting a wood ball to a hollow box of wood with metal “teeth” inside. The player holds the metal wire in one hand and strikes the ball with the other hand. The box acts as a resonating chamber for the loosely fastened pins (the teeth) that vibrate and rattle against the box.
Vibraslap – The resonating chamber is made of rosewood. The chamber of the larger vibraslap is 13.5cm (5 ¼”) long, 7cm (2 ¾”) wide at the open end, and 2.5cm (1”) tall.
