The heart of Afro-Cuban percussion!
Clave (pronounced clah' vay) is the rhythmic pattern that forms the basis of Latin music. Clave playing is phrased with a 3/2 or 2/3 feel (3 beats then 2 beats, or 2 beats then 3 beats). Claves are also the traditional instruments used to play a group's rhythmic beat, and are comprised of 2 sticks that are struck together to get a sharp, cracking sound. One stick is called the clave, while the other is the striker.
The clave lies 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.
In this set, the clave (10"L x 1-7/8"W) is larger than the striker (10"L x 3/4"W) and it features a cut-away sound chamber designed to increase volume and vary sound qualities.
