The more common Agogô is made of metal and has a sharp sound when played. This Agogô is made of nut shells mounted on a stick of wood and has a very smooth sound when played. My husband loves to use this style of Agogô when recording due to the smoothness of the sound — he claims it simply melds better with the other instruments.
