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.

The LP Grenadilla Wood Clave is an excellent intermediate level clave. As in traditional style claves, both the clave and striker are the same size (8" L x 1-1/4" W). LP Grenadilla Clave has a rich, dark sound that is great for studio work but with the projection to cut through live bands.
