Our Perspective

Another must have in your percussion collection, the Basic Beat Ratchet is built solid and has a great sound. Use the clamp to attach a stand or table for one hand use. - Adam

The Basic Beat standard crank-style ratchet adds an exciting sound effect to your music. This instrument produces a consistent ratchet sound when the crank is turned steadily. The ratchet can easily be played one-handed while holding another instrument by using the built-in clamp to secure it in place.



  • Designed with metal and wood for a bright, consistent sound
  • Built-in clamp to allow for one-handed playing


  • Dimensions: 6.5" (l) x 5.5" (w)
