Claves - Pioneer Instrument


Claves are two pieces of wood that are approximately eight inches long and one inch in diameter. The type of wood used is usually a hardwood although ebony and hard pine are sometimes used. Their sound is produced by striking the claves together, with the cupped palm of the hand providing resonance. This sound is heard over all other instruments! Claves help carry the rhythm as well as direct the melody and the steps of dancers. In fact, it is the claves' syncopated rhythmic pattern(s) around which musicians revolve.
