A professional castanet of the Jale brand. It is made of granadillo wood, one of the materials that is most highly valued for manufacturing castanets due to its hardness. Its colour is black, but it is also available in brown.
Castañuelas Jale, whose head office is in Valencia, is one of the most prestigious brands of castanet manufacturers. It offers high quality and a good sound thanks to a combination of craftmanship and industrial techniques.
To ensure that they maintain a good sound, you cannot neglect taking care of them: they should always be kept away from moisture, or excessive cold or heat can cause them to crack or break.
