Shipping international restrictions confirmation
Traditionally used for rhythmic patterns in African and Latin American music, claves produce bright clicking sounds that range from strong in tone to a lighter feel depending on their construction. Made out of various materials including natural woods like birch, rosewood, padouk, and white wood, as well as synthetics like fiberglass, claves produce a slightly different sound depending on its construction. Each set comes with two claves, one for holding (the female) and one for striking (the male), and some even include a hallowed out center to create a broader more open tone.
West Music offers an array of claves in different sizes, styles, and colors, from brands including Basic Beat, LP, Sonor, and our own in-house label. We strive to provide the best quality products at the best value, so you can find the instruments you need while staying well within your budget.
