We will send you photos of the ones we have at the moment so you can see if they are to your liking.

Size guide

In a general way we can resume castanets sizes like:

- Size 3: kids

- Size 4: kids and women with small hands.

- Size 5: most of women or men with small hands

- Size 7: generally recommended for men.


Spanish castanets size it is a quite personal decision and there is really not a defined way to chose the perfect size. As orientation we can chose our "correct" size depending on our hands measures:

Measuring from point A to B we can say that:

Less than 7 cm-> Size 3
Between 7 & 8.5 cm -> Sizes 4 y 5
more than 8,5 cm ->Size 7

From 7 sounds that can produce a castanet we will take 3: TA-RRI-PI and 1 called "posticeo" (fig.4) that produce the sound PAM.

FigA: thumb position to use the spanish castanets

Fig B: Sounds times.
Sound PI - hit with the right hand.

"Sevillanas touch"- when starting Sevillana dance we shoud do an starting beat:

First: complete beat like TA-RRI-TA-PAM-PAM (steps 1-5) and later and incomplet one with TA-RRI-TA-PI-TA sounds (steps 6 to 10).

Later we continue with the traditional: RRI-TA-RRI-TA-PI-TA-RRI-TA-RRI-TA-PI-TA (steps 11-16).



After that, we play: RRI-TA-RRI-TA-PI-TA-RRI-TA-RRI-TA-PI-TA (steps 11 to 16).
