Professional castanets: unrivalled craftsmanship; crystal-clear sound; the ultimate flamenco timbre!
We are justifiably proud to make available to you our stunning castanet collection with the historical name: Castañuelas del Sur. With over 100 years of experience in handmade castanets and under the tutelage of Juan Vela, the Castañuelas del Sur Company uses the best materials in the market to cover the needs that demanding instructors, dancers, and musicians have when looking for the best. Thanks to the superb craftsmanship and the unsurpassed sound these castanets produce they are touted as the top castanets on national and international level.
The Castañuelas del Sur are made in Seville, the capital of Andalusia using traditional handcrafting methods. The materials they are made of are all noble ones: Granadillo; Ebano; Guayacán; and Palo Santo in combination with artificial fibers so that the castanets may be more resilient to abrupt weather changes, may not crack or absorb the moisture they are so fond of. Time after time, the sound they produce remains the same in intensity and quality.
