An extremely loud pair of claves made of specially formulated fiberglass. The nearly indestructible construction yields a 'cutting" sound used on many contemporary recordings. Their ability to cut through amplified bands makes them great for live playing.

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 or 2/3 feel (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, while the other is the striker.
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.

LP African Clave follows African tradition with a larger clave (12" L x 1 3/4" W) and smaller striker (10" L x 1" W), as well as a cut-away sound chamber. The cut-away design on this clave 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.
