Maybe its a ratchet knife like what the rude bwoys used to carry in their waist.. <IMG SRC="http://www.interruptor.ch/cgi-bin/discu ... /happy.gif" ALT=":&#41;"> <BR> <BR>Actually, I think it's hand toy percussion insturments like the "hit scrape", it has another name but thats what I was taught to call it in gradeschool. Also maybe those hand-crank things..

I believe it to be a Guiro.

Nice samples and a few loops here: http://studio.dubroom.org/downloads-dub ... ssion1.htm

Anyone know exactly Scientists gets the sound on Wins The World Cup?
