LP African Clave

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.

  • Follows African tradition with a larger Clave (12" L x 13⁄4" W) and smaller Striker (10" L x 1" W)
  • Cut away sound chamber features a hollowed center for broader, more open tones
  • Though larger in size than the LP Standard Clave, it features the same kiln dried exotic hardwood and produces deep, rich tones with projection
