Click to enlarge image(s)
BLEMISHED: This pair of Ebony Castanets (Item Code: CASB) consists of two sets of corded clam-shaped wooden clappers, played in the palm of the hand.
Each pair has a slightly larger (M) male and a slightly smaller (F) female castanet. The ebony will produce a slightly louder and crisper sound than those made of sheesham. The ebony is stained black for consistent appearance.
To play, hang one set from each of your thumbs so they rest in the palm of your hand, then drum your fingers on the shell.
We do not recommend them for beginners, who should build up their finger strength and dexterity on smaller sets.
Approximate overall dimensions are: 2 5/8 inches wide by 3 1/2 inches long (6.75 x 9 cm).
Actual instrument weight is approximately 0.35 lbs.
