About NAL

Natural Acoustics Lab produces the music industry's most versatile and beautiful hand crafted shaker instruments.

About NAL- Our instruments are based on an patented architecture new to the industry. NAL innovations increase handheld percussion "vocabulary" and limitless rhythmic possibilities. 

Inspired by nature, these handcrafted instruments made in a variety of woods offer you an extraordinary percussive experience: articulate, responsive, and multi-faceted. While NAL instruments are desired by pro percussionists and composers for film and TV, they also are intended for use by vocalists, acoustic performers, students, and music educators. 

Environmental responsibility- Trees are a blessing from Nature. All NAL shakers are made from sustainably forested wood. Our wood suppliers are CITES compliant. We carefully plan our wood crafting to minimize any waste. And we properly recycle. Further, our wood glue is certified non-toxic by the FDA. Lastly, all our instruments are burnished with our proprietary wood cream composed only of organic and hypo-allergenic ingredients.

Please take a few moments to explore this web site and learn about our remarkable instruments. You can also follow us on Instagram and Facebook.

We have many exciting products under development and scheduled for release in the coming months. 

Feel free to contact us with questions about our products, your musical needs, or just to say "Hi". While our instruments are awesome, there are some things that they shouldn't be used for - here is a list of Do's and Don'ts.
