Hand-painted wooden claves create the classic rhythmic patterns that form the foundation of traditional Latin and Afro-Cuban music and are perfect for percussion students and aspiring musicians.
With their simple design and colorful hand-painted detail, you wouldn’t think these two pieces of wood could be such a popular percussion instrument. But they make a great accompaniment to all kinds of music.
Learning to accent music with your new clave is easy with just a little practice and experimentation. To play, simply hold one clave in each hand and hit them firmly together to create bright clicking sounds that cut through loud and clear. As you improve your timing and skill, you’ll better anticipate beats and control momentum with each and every strike.
Precise and well-balanced, the claves are made from legally certified mahogany hardwood which is known and appreciated for having natural tonal qualities. Each one is a true work of playable art with a colorful hand-painted look that features ringed stripes, starbursts and a stylish red heart. Our claves are about the same length as a pair of drumsticks so they’re also easy to slide into your music case or travel bag whenever you hit the road. Clave and striker measure 11 1/2”L x 1 1/4”W each.
