Great castanets for students
Olga P. on 02/20/2020This is a preferred model for the students of our Russian flamenco studio. It is great value - not overly expensive but you get really good quality castanets with bright sound and all characteristics of professional castanets. In previous years we used different castanets from differents brands and supplies, but for the last two years all new students in our studio buy only this model (we like it so much), and at this site, because we think it has the best customer service among all flamenco stuff sites (and it is in good English).
KONSTANTINA S. on 10/11/2022Very good quality
