Product Description

Clave (pronounced clah’ vay) is the rhythmic pattern that forms the basis of Latin music. Clave is phrased in what is known as a 3⁄2 (forward clave) or 2⁄3 (backward clave) feel. That is, three beats then two beats or, two beats then three beats. Claves are the traditional instruments used to play clave and are comprised of two sticks that are struck together to get a sharp, cracking sound. One is called the Clave or male, while the other is the Striker or female. The Clave lays in one hand between the fingertips and the heel of the hand, with the thumb out for support. This space between the Clave and the palm of the hand creates a sound chamber. The Striker is held as a beater in the other hand and is struck against the Clave.

These seem to be fine- haven't used mine much yet. The pair I got sound to me like they produce a brighter more piercing sound than some claves I've heard. If you need something with some cut these are a good choice. If you're expecting a more mellow "woody" tone these aren't for you.

Anything made by Latin Percussion is going to be a great product. I've owned other percussion instruments by LP and have been extremely satisfied. These claves are great for any Latin percussion gig or just to have around for when friends want to come jam.

I recommend for sure!

I will be traveling extensively over the next several weeks for business. I wanted something that I could bring with me on my travels that would allow me to easily practice my percussion practice. These claves were a great solution. They are wood, and they go through airport security (checked bags) just fine. They have a lovely, bright, and very loud sound. The wood is attractive, and while they have a surprising heft, they are light enough to travel easily. They're also a great alternative instrument for drum circle.

My headline says it all really. The tone is full but crisp, the sticks themselves have a nice solid feel and they fit my hands nicely.

No complaints and very pleased.

I have no others to compare it too, but it sounds about like I expected. Other models were so expensive, I mean,
it's just two pieces of wood....I was tempted to cut about 50 cents worth of wooden dowel and make my own, but
maybe this is some "special, hand-selected wood". I'd appreciated any CONSTRUCTIVE thoughts on why so many models
are so expensive! Yes, I understand that some woods are more expensive than others, but still...

These are not the claves to end all claves, but sound very decent. I've used them in a wide variety of musical applications with great success. They are very durable and sturdy and have not broken down at all.

Unless you absolutely need the best pair of claves money can buy, go for these!

How can you possibly go wrong with two pieces of wood? The wood is a hard wood, not pine or other soft wood, and they are nicely finished. I would not use these on a drum with a hide surface, but they are great for wooden log drums and other percussion surfaces made of wood or metal. They will not replace standard drumsticks for cymbals or snare drums or any animal skin head drum.
