Orozco nº 7 Black Fibre Filigrana Flamenco Castanets
Orozco Model nº 7 Black Fibre has these characteristics:
This model is made with artificial fibre. The chemist adds cellulose (50%) and textile (50%) to give more resistance than the previous models. These castanets are black with a smooth touch of wax. Their reference number is 7 which means that their size is the biggest.
The “neck” of castanets is short, and their “ears” are leveled with the “neck” so the thumb can rest. It is a professional model. Their angles are leaning to facilitate the slidding of fingers.
Castanets are percussion instruments.
