  • CLASSIC HARDWOOD CLAVES, SOLD IN PAIRS: The Meinl Classic Hardwood Claves deliver bright, resounding, and rich tones that have cut and clarity. Essential for Afro-Latin rhythms and applicable in virtually any style, claves are the perfect percussion instrument to create polyrhythms, straight beats, or to use for sound effects.
  • CREATE A RESONATING TONE: The lightweight hardwood body has outstanding natural acoustic properties. Hold one clave in your non-dominant hand with your palm up, lightly gripping it with your fingertips and thumb tip while striking it with the other clave in your dominant hand. This allows greater resonance and better overall tone.
  • VITAL FOR PERCUSSIONISTS AND DRUMMERS ALIKE: Traditional clave sounds may be used to enhance an acoustic set of music if you are playing on a cajon, djembe, bongos, or congas. They may also be helpful to use with a drum kit or in the studio to layer and accent grooves. Claves bring a unique worldly sound to any form of music.
  • USEFUL FOR MUSIC EDUCATORS: Teachers will find that claves are a fun, easy, and affordable way to develop a young student's sense of rhythm. Counting and timing are crucial to executing traditional clave rhythms.
  • OFFICIAL TWO YEAR MEINL WARRANTY: All Meinl claves carry a two year manufacturer's warranty when purchased from authorized retailers.

    By Dancing Chick
    This item was a gift for a budding musician. It is well made and you can feel the smooth wooden material as you beat this percussion. it gives a pleasant sound, not some cheaply made out of tune instrument. It is NOT a toy. It is a quality music instrument for the price cheaper than a toy. Toddler loves their gift so much that and we are deciding to purchase one for ourselves.

    Nice controlled sound. No under/overtones. I thought they would be too thin when I ordered them, but they are a comfortable size and sound great. Meinl Percussion has always exceeded my expectations. I have been in contact with master percussionist Luis Conte (Currently touring with James Taylor) and he recommended these. He also has a signature Meinl conga set which he also recommended.

    5Great Sound . . . .
    By Amazon Customer
    Purchased these to round out my percussion instruments that include mainly hand drums, i.e. Djembe, Cajon, Bongos, Talking Drum, Doumbek. They produce a perfect pitch that cuts through the sounds of the other instruments. Many band and drum corps drum instructor use drum stick to "clack" the tempo; these would be better for that than a pair of drum sticks. Great buy for the price and they look great too.
