These are the Rhythm Pricks you have been waiting for. these Thai Rhythm Pricks, when struck, they produce a bright clicking noise. Claves are very important in Cuban music, they are often used to play a repeating rhythm throughout a piece. Traditionally, the striking clave is called el macho (“the male”) and the resting clave is called la hembra (“the female”). This terminology is used even when the claves are identical, like if you have TWO PRICKS.
