Our Perspective

As a Hand Percussion Consultant, I recommend this large set of claves for older players – approximately aged middle school to adult.  Made of rosewood, they produce a nice, bright sound when played.  -Jenny

By Basic Beat. Single pair of rosewood claves; dimensions are approximately 7-3/4" long x 7/8" diameter. Claves traditionally are used for rhythmic patterns; they produce bright, cracking sounds to keep the beat. Both are the same size, although one is the "male" clave, to be held in a cupped hand, and one is the "female" striker, to tap against the held clave. Test to discover the difference - when the correct clave is tapped with the striker, it will produce a lower, more resonant sound. Priced per pair.

LOVE the sound of these claves! I used a pair at my Orff level I course at George Mason Univ and bought a pair. Slowly replacing the junk pairs I got for much cheaper. You get what you pay for!
