A semi-professional castanet of the Jale brand. It is made of bubinga, a type of wood that is very well suited for manufacturing castanets due to its hardness and its resistance to the expansion and contraction that are caused by sudden shifts in temperature.
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.
