It's All About Great Tone

For an instrument to sound great, it has to be made from a material that has great tone. These Claves are handcrafted from beautiful Mahogany Tone Wood. Precision turned and meticulously finished with Stephen's Secret Oil/Beeswax wood finish recipe, these claves will not disappoint.

Beautiful Tone That Cuts Through

Each Kopf Percussion Professional Mahogany Claves is first crafted from hand selected pieces of Mahogany Stock and then put through another "Tone" check after it is built. This insures that each instrument has amazing tone. Also, the Oil/Beeswax finish protects the wood without dampening the tone so that it will cut through sonically.

Absolute Perfection

The Kopf logo is laser engraved on the clave rather than the industry usual screen-printing. This is to avoid the extra ink (even though minimal) that may dampen the tone.

Great Tone From The Very Start

Instruments with great tone are made from materials that also have great tone. Each Kopf Professional Mahogany Clave starts it's life as a carefully selected piece of beautiful Mahogany wood.

It's The Little Things That Add Up

The Kopf Logo is laser engraved to avoid any unnecessary "Tone Dampening" ink. Stephen Head's secret Oil/Beeswax finish is applied to further preserve the beautiful tone of the wood.

Quality Is Priority

    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!
