- A coin or a round shaped rock used to change the pitch and/or timbre of the note.
- A stick of wood or bamboo
- A gourd as a ressonator, attached to the arc by a cotton string.
- A light shaker named caxixi is often played using the right hand, the same that holds the stick, as the player strikes the wire.
