    I posted a while ago about how I was looking for a second set of official Sega Maracas from somewhere other than eBay... Well, found them & they arrived this morning.
    I got them from Video Game Depot for $90 before shipping - that's a $10 mark-up on the RRP, which is not too bad considering nowhere else I've been to has them for under $100. Shipping is a flat $6 too.
    They've got a good reputation from what I've seen, and this order was shipped promptly. Thought I'd pass on the info...

    Thanks for the update Brian.
    Still more than I'm willing to pay, however. I've been stung by defective $30 maracas (found on ebay).

    I've had zero problems with my 'official' maracas, and they've been worth every penny so far. $10 mark-up isn't /too/ bad considering the prices they go for on eBay.

    Samba Samba! official Sega maracas are only way to play Samba De Amigo. Congrats! BTW, I tried Samba De Amigo at the arcades thinking I would be pretty good. I ended up with C. Arcade maracas were much heavier and difficult to operate. The same goes for Guitar Freaks which is also pretty awesome on PS with a guitar controller. It is pretty funny to see people with maracas and platic guitar.

    One thing to note, guys. These are the Japanese official Maracas... They work perfectly fine with my US Dreamcast & US game, as well as my Japanese Samba 2000.
    We played with them for a good couple of hours over the weekend - two player with my US official maracas, with zero problems whatsoever.
