Claves are traditional instruments from Cuba and consist of a pair of wooden dowels which produce a high pitched clicking sound when hit together. They are easy to play and essential for the classroom percussion box. The claves are sturdy and compact, perfect for younger players and for withstanding use in the classroom.
Claves are often used to play a repeating rhythmic figure throughout a piece and commonly play their own, self-titled rhythm in Latin American dance music.
This pair of sheesham wood claves from Percussion Plus are both attractive and great sounding.
