SOLID REDWOOD CLAVES, SOLD IN PAIRS: The Meinl solid redwood 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 redwood 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.

Two resonant liquid chambers are connected by a long steel spiral. The Galaxy is held in one hand, while the other hand holds a beater, and it may be played something like a classical triangle.
