Castanets

Get ready for your dance performance with a set of Spanish castanets. Our selection of castanets for sale include only respected brands including: Castañuelas del Sur, Filigrana and Jale.  We have castanet instruments for all levels, from beginner to expert. When choosing your castanet, they should fit comfortably in your palm. Please refer to sizing information here for more a detailed explanation.

Each pair of instruments begins with 2 cup shaped pieces of wood or fiber. Preferred woods are granadillo or ebano. These hardwoods offer greater strength and durability, resulting in a superior instrument. Fabricators use less expensive woods for beginner instruments to allow for affordable pricing. Some professional instruments feature wood, and others fiberglass. Fiberglass castañuelas come together by applying heat and pressure to layers of wood, or cloth soaked in resin resulting in superior strength.

Products are in stock and ship from our warehouse in St. Petersburg, Florida (USA)
