Professional Mahogany Wood Claves Musical Instrument
My Traditional Mahogany Paired Claves are genuinely handcrafted from Mahogany stock that has been carefully selected to be beautiful aesthetically, tonally appealing, and durable. After the Mahogany stock is turned to a 1" diameter, it is then trimmed down to a length of 8". After the Kopf logo is burned into the clave, rather than putting a "sound sucking" hard finish on , I apply a hand rubbed finish of my own blend of Boiled Linseed oil, Pure Turpentine, and Natural Beeswax. Lastly, I hand buff with a lint free rag to attain a silky smooth satin finish. These claves sound great and will cut through just about any musical situation. They feel great in the hand and will last a lifetime.
I have used many claves over the past 40 years but these are by far the best. Most have a very harsh tone, however these have many timbres of sound that can be achieved after experimentation. I would highly recommend them to all percussionists, but especially those looking for claves with nuance!
very nice claves, well made with a nice rice tone
