About NAL


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

Our instruments are derived from an architecture new to the industry. NAL innovations increase handheld percussion "vocabulary" and expand the range of performance techniques. We deliver craftsman quality and beauty that outpaces mass-produced instruments from commercial retail outlets.

This product line is an enhanced family of handcrafted ultra-shakers made from fine hardwoods. Each instrument possesses an exceptional look, great feel and unique voice, giving our customers versatility on stage and in the studio. 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. 

NAL's founder, Al Di Cicco, is a professional performer and TV composer. He is passionate about the creative process, the art of musical instruments, and the quest for superior performance.

Please take a few moments to learn about our remarkable instruments. We have many new products under development slated for release in 2016. 

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.
