Black Swamp - Professional Concert Castanets

Black Swamp Pro Concert Castanets speak with a solid, impressive tone from forteto piano, and rip simple or complex rhythms with ease. You've never sounded so Flamenco. We make them with certified Honduras Rosewood and Grenadillo in our own facility for complete quality control. Each chip is CNC machined, then voiced by hand (and by a musician's ear) so you get the most musical and consistent castanets available.

CNC Machined for Precision, Voiced and Finished by Hand

While our CNC machine (computer numerical control) carves the precision, the castanets can only sound great after it's hand voiced and finished by a musician's ear. This is why you will only find a superior level of clarity, response, and fullness in a Black Swamp castanet.

A Handle Design Unrivaled in Response and Playability

The innovative handle is the key to the unmatched performance of BSP castanets. Play them on your knee or in the air (don't even try that with any other castanet). Play them at all dynamic ranges, and rip some redoble rolls like you were a flamenco artist. Our new design took years to perfect and can do it all without elastic or adjustment knobs.

The Black Swamp Castanet Machine Frame

This converts your BSP castanets into "machine" style castanets. Our castanet frame is constructed from powder coated aluminum with no more pesky knobs to twist and turn. Simply slide the handles into two sets of mounting holes with custom made rubber gaskets and start playing. A universal mounting hole, and rubber isolators along the bottom edges, add versatility and functionality...a Black Swamp specialty! Castanets not included. Model # CMF.
