This is a beautiful sounding shaker. I haven't yet used it as a "bracelet", but I'd imagine it would be ideal for any percussion or Cajon player. I have recorded numerous percussive elements using this shaker and it always sounds fantastic. The sound is very traditional and sounds crisp and wooden. I have used it in my studio for a couple of months now and the build quality is excellent, it doesn't seem like it's going to snap or lose it's finish any time soon - in fact it still looks brand new! It's a great shaker to use in contrast with typical plastic or steel percussion, as it certainly has a unique sound. And for the price, it's a great percussive element.
