You search your mind for what you know of the shell castanets...

The castanets are made from pairs of slightly curving shells, one set for each hand, that are clapped together. One hand plays the basic beat, while the other hand taps out more intricate rhythms. Their small size makes them a favorite of dancers who can easily play complex beats to enhance their performance.
