Pair of Ebony Castanets. The pair consists of two sets, a left and a right. Each set has two corded clam-shaped ebony clappers. Each pair has a slightly larger male set and a slightly smaller female set of castanets usually marked M and F respectively.
To play, hang one set from each of your thumbs so they rest in the palm of your hands. Then drum your fingers on the shell. The ebony produces a slightly louder and crisper sound than castanets made of sheesham. The ebony is stained black for consistent appearance.
We do not recommend them for beginners, who should build up their finger strength and dexterity on smaller sets. 2 5/8 inches wide by 3 1/2 inches long (6.75 x 9 cm). Storage bag included.
What is BLEMISHED?
Blemished, or Scratch & Dent, products are new and unused with superficial irregularities that do not affect the playability or sound quality of the instrument. The irregularities may include, finish blisters, scratches, dents, stains, discoloration, rust or pitting on metals, imperfect glazes, non-structural repairs such as putty in nail holes, or other surface marks. These blemished products have codes which end in -1(s) and -2(s). A product designated as -1 or -1S has minor blemishes and a product code ending in -2 or -2S has moderate blemishes and/or minor repairs.
Our product codes ending in "PROP" are unable to be played and are for display purposes only.
Please note: For safety during shipping, we don't tune our string instruments before sending to customers.
