Available in either Natural or Redwood, the Theodore Percussion Claves are an excellent addition to a handheld percussion setup at any level, from professional establishments to primary schools. Cleverly designed with a hollow strip running through the centre of the Claves, & closed at each end with smooth wood, this feature resonates & amplifies the sound to great effect. Very important in Afro-Caribbean music but also used in popular music in recent decades, the basic principle when playing claves is to allow at least one of them to resonate. The usual technique is to hold one lightly with the thumb and fingertips of the non-dominant hand, with the palm up. This forms the hand into a resonating chamber for the clave. Holding the clave on top of fingernails makes the sound more clear. The dominant hand at one end with a firmer grip holds the other, much like how one normally holds a drumstick. With the end of this clave, the player strikes the resting clave in the centre.
