Latin Percussion LP597
Latin Percussion LP597 Description:
Clave (pronounced clah' vay) is the rhythmic pattern that forms the basis of Latin music. Clave is phrased in what is known as a 3/2 or 2/3 feel (three beats then two beats or two beats then three beats). Claves are the traditional instruments used to play clave and are comprised of two sticks that are struck together to get a sharp, cracking sound. One is called the clave, while the other is the striker.
The clave lays in one hand between the fingertips and the heel of the hand, with the thumb out for support. This space between the clave and the palm of the hand creates a sound chamber. The striker is held as a beater in the other hand and is struck against the clave. LP King Klave is the loudest clave available and is made of specially formulated fiberglass. This nearly indestructible construction yields an incredibly loud "cutting" sound that can be heard on recordings from around the world. LP King Klaves measure 8" L x 1" W and have the projection and volume to cut through loud live music. They are also ideal for school use in marching bands.
