Pro Concert Castanets

Black Swamp Pro Concert Castanets speak with a solid, impressive tone from forte to piano, and rip simple or complex rhythms with ease. You've never sounded so Flamenco. We make them with Purpleheart  and Grenadillo in our own facility for complete quality control. Each chip is CNC machined, then voiced by hand (and by a musician's ear) so you get the most musical and consistent castanets available.
