Look: The instrument is simply comprised of two round rods which the musician knocks together, grasping one piece per hand, to produce a distinctive click.

Recall

You search your mind for what you know of the remeka claves...

Claves are a percussion instrument, consisting of a pair of short, thick dowels. Claves are almost always made of wood, typically rosewood, ebony or blackwood. When struck claves produce a bright clicking noise, and are sometimes hollow and carved in the middle to amplify the sound. The usual technique is to hold one lightly with the thumb and fingertips of the non-dominant hand, with the palm up. This forms the hand into a resonating chamber for the clave.
