These Off-White and Dark Red Grained Castanets “Capricho” are the most professional model made by Castañuelas del Sur.
These exclusive castanets are made and signed personally by the master craftsman Juan Vela (one of the founders of Castañuelas del Sur) and his son, craftsman maker Juan Manuel Vela who continues with the tradition nowadays.
Their sound box provides a grave and enveloping sound and their shape fits perfectly in the hand. This model is main featured by his light weight, his little ears, a nuanced sound and a swift touch. The castanets are made-to-measure to suit the user needs in a high precision and very resistant material that gives them such fantastic sound.
The canvas or grained canvas castanets are a bit more resistant than the fiberglass ones. That's the reason why these castanets are the Jota dancers' favourite.
These castanets are perfect for soloists.
