Castaways are a unique blend consisting of a pair of black wooden castanets mounted on a light weight ball. They are positioned closer to the grip area to maximize playing control. Polyrod material with 2 adjustable beads blend the castanets sound to a perfect mix. Play the castanets positioned upwards and execute precision quarter or eighth note figures. Flipping the Castanets downwards transforms the same figures to 16th notes. The combinations and sounds are very musical and can enhance most genres of music.
