Add even more artistic sound accents to your cajon performance. Available in small, medium and large sizes, Meinl Cajon Castanets attach directly onto any cajon surface. For the more adventurous, get all three castanets and bounce back and forth between sizes to showcase an even wider range of diverse musical expression.
Traditional wooden castanets from Meinl feature steel jingles that punctuate your music with brighter, spicier accents while adding more flavor and character to every beat. These percussive castanets are sensitive to your touch and spring-loaded for a fast and consistent response. Have fun discovering the many accents and variations as you use different finger techniques to produce a wide array of ever-changeable sounds.
Each castanet has a self-adhesive back that quickly attaches on the front or sides of any cajon surface. Start with just one castanet or mount all three sizes within easy reach and play away. When not in use, the castanets won’t alter or affect the sound of your cajon in any way, and their compact, unobtrusive size won’t interfere with hand strokes when you’re playing the cajon normally without any accents.
Great for percussionists of all skill levels, these budget-friendly castanets are made from sustainably grown, eco-friendly rubber wood with a contemporary matte black finish.
