Danmar Table Top Castanet Instrument

The Danmar 17A Castanet Instrument will sit on a table or percussion tray for one or two handed castanet playing. Two pairs of castanets are included.

Damaged product/low quality

Comments:

Plastic bodies of the instrument sounds worse than natural wood (like rosewood) The fastener broke after a few days of use.

Wonderful!

Comments:

Great sounding castanets! The springs and other hardware are sturdy. The wooden base is solid. The actual castanets have a very articulate sound!

Damaged Product

Comments:

When I opened the box, one of small wooden blocks, which the castanets are mounted on had come out of the base. I was able to get through a gig with them. Luckily, the folks at Steve Weiss arranged for Danmar to replace the instrument and all shipping costs were covered by Danmar. Thank you for standing by your products!

Great Crisp sound

Comments:

Very very pleased with this purchase so far. The adjustment is easy and very fine. You can make it sound exactly the way you want. The sound is very crisp and cuts nicely through our ensemble.

Rhythmic Precision with a Castanet Machine

Comments:

Handheld castanets can be difficult to control, especially during rapid passages. In addition, dynamics are iffy. I played a Castanet Machine in a past life and was faced again with "West Side Story". No worries with this machine, and the springs are adjustable to one's touch.

Good Buy

Comments:

These castanets sounds great, but the tension mechanism never feels 100% secure. You can't beat the convenience and ease of use, though, so I still highly recommend them.
