Grover Pro Concert Castanets - Product Information

Grover Pro Variable-Tension Castanets feature an internal tensioning system that can be quickly adjusted by simply turning the knob at the end of the handle.

The castanets themselves are carved from a solid block of Granadillo wood. The profile is based on the shape used by Spain's master castanet artisans for over a century. Grover Pro cuts all four castanets per set from a single solid piece of wood. This ensures consistency in sound and color.

The Grover patent-pending tensioning system is easily adjusted by turning a low-profile, ergonomic knob at the bottom of the handle. The mechanism is completely internal, so it won't interfere with your hand position while you are playing. The handle body is made of aircraft-grade aluminum tubing that has a molded outer covering. The handle is both lightweight and easy to grip. Unlike other adjustable castanets which feature systems that allow only one castanet of the pair to move, Grover Pro castanets have been developed so that both sides are tensioned and move equally. This is an important design feature which ensures consistent and accurate articulations at any dynamic level. Loose tensioning allows for redoble rolls.

Each pair of Grover Pro Variable-Tension Castanets comes with a protective storage pouch.

Great mechanics and amazing tone!

Comments:

Grover really nailed it! The internal device for tension is simple, elegant, and most importantly works extremely well. So the mechanism is great, and then you hear the SOUND. The tone is thick and "woody". Grover does it again! A great addition to their catalog.

Fantastic!

Comments:

Heard these castanets demo at PASIC. Tried them and LOVED'EM. The elastic on my current castanets keeps stretching, a real problem. I also have to make sure that the adjustment knob is up on both. In addition the handle is too thick for me. The Grovers feel like a timpani handle, perfectly balanced. Can be played any side up. Seem to have a more consistent sound than my rosewood model. Going to order from Steve today!
